Barco and Kodak Sign Worldwide Digital Projector Supply Agreement
Barco, a global leader in digital cinema projection technology, is proud to announce that it has signed a supply agreement with Kodak, a global leader in entertainment imaging. Under the terms of the agreement, Barco could deliver up to 10,000 digital cinema projectors to support Kodak’s worldwide digital cinema deployment.
Barco and Kodak, two recognized industry leaders, have entered into this supply agreement to provide exhibitors fully integrated digital cinema solutions. These include high quality Barco digital cinema projectors combined with Kodak digital screen management servers and theatre management systems.
“We are proud to have been selected by Kodak; this is the continuation of a long-term relationship,” comments Wim Buyens, VP of Barco's digital cinema business. “Our modular design and complete family of projectors provide Kodak with the total cost of ownership and superior image quality required for worldwide audiences.
“Barco has a long-term commitment to high quality projection technology in digital cinema,” said Les Moore, chief operating officer for Kodak Digital Cinema. “We are already working with them in a number of multiplexes in the United States and beyond. By combining Barco's capabilities with ours, we can jointly provide a complete solution to the marketplace. This new agreement will be a good fit for both companies and for our customers worldwide.”
Todd Hoddick, US VP of Barco's digital cinema business adds: “We are pleased to partner with Kodak on this worldwide deal. We have been very focused on delivering value to our customers, and that fits perfectly with Kodak's customer focus and commitment to quality.
Barco has developed a modular digital cinema projector platform offering a cost effective solution for every screen size. To support its rapidly-growing installed base of digital projectors, Barco has launched a Certified Service Partner program to establish a worldwide support network with the highest quality local service and support. As part of the supply agreement, Kodak technicians will also participate in the Barco Certified Service Partner program.
All of Barco's digital cinema projectors are based on the pioneering DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments, guaranteeing perfect re-production of film, time and time again, and ensure movie goers enjoy the highest quality film experience with consistent picture brightness, contrast and vibrant colors.
