Shanghai, CHINA—Dec 8, 2008
Barco stars at China’s National Digital Cinema Production Center
Barco, a world leader in visualization and display solution, teams with the China Film Group and the National Digital Cinema Production Center in enhancing its digital cinema operations. Barco has been a partner since 2002, and now also has provided digital cinema equipment for post-production at the new center.
As China’s most advanced digital cinema production center, the National Digital Cinema Production Center serves as the heart of film and television pre and post production on the mainland. Operating in conjunction with the highly prominent China Film Group, the center handles nearly 99% of all digital film mastering in China. Founded in 1999, the China Film Group Corporation (CFGC) is the most comprehensive and extensive film group in China’s movie and TV industry. CFGC is the sole authorized importer of foreign movies in China and enjoys working partnerships with some 400-film institutions across 100 countries.
The CFGC’s National Digital Film Production Center is key to the mainland’s cultural development project as part of China’s eleventh Five-Year Cultural Development Guidelines. CFGC is located in Beijing’s Yangsong, Huairou district. The center occupies 140,000 square meters of total building area that includes 16 working studios, the Film & TV Product Communication Center, Administrative Center, Technical R&D Center and supporting utilities. Its total investment values more than RMB 2 billion. Thanks to a production capacity of 80 story films, 100 digital cinemas, 200 telecines and 500 teleplays and animation, the center is not only China’s number one, but the world’s largest, most centralized film and television production complex.
Barco has brought a number of digital solutions to the National Digital Cinema Production Center workspace. The studios all incorporate various Barco digital cinema products including a DP-1500 projector in the audio mixing studio, a DP90P projector in the color correction studio, and DP-2000 projectors in CFGC’s key projection rooms. In the latter, final editions of film are screened in exclusive projection rooms for CFGC and government representatives before the films are released to the public.
“We are currently using the world’s most sophisticated digital cinema equipment,” says Chen Fei, Chief Engineer, CFGC Film & TV Center. “This in turn has allowed us to rapidly close the gap in sophisticated post production between China and leading film industries, and improve the quality of Chinese film production.”
“The outstanding films coming out of China these days are winning a wealth of acclaim both at home and abroad,” says Frank Christiaens, Barco President, Greater China. “This just wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous effort put in by the China Film Group and its National Digital Cinema Production Center. The commitment is not just in creativity, but also in providing the state of the art tools that bring creativity to life. This is something we at Barco are surely proud to be part of.”
More than just delivering outstanding technology, Barco also provides high quality after sales service to its customers. From speedy response and troubleshooting to the company’s standard professional service from its highly qualified engineers, the Barco team stands behind its products 100%.
