Zon Lusomundo Selects Barco’s Digital Cinema Projectors for XDC’s Deployment of 213 Screens in Portugal
Barco, a global leader in digital cinema projectors, is proud to announce that it has been chosen by ZON Lusomundo, the largest cinema chain in Portugal, for the deployment of 213 digital cinema systems. By the end of 2010, 28 of ZON Lusomundo's cinema complexes will be equipped with Barco digital cinema projectors.
XDC, a leading digital cinema service company in Europe, and ZON Lusomundo have signed an exclusive agreement for the deployment of 213 full digital cinema systems in ZON Lusomundo's theatres in Portugal. Under the terms of the agreement, XDC will exclusively install Barco's DCI-compliant 2K digital projectors in combination with their CineStore® Solo G3 D-Cinema server and a fully integrated and networked solution in each complex.
“We are very proud that Barco's digital cinema projectors have been chosen to bring digital cinema to Portugal,” comments Alain Solomon, vice president digital cinema division. “This confirms again the outstanding quality of our digital cinema projectors and services. As more cinemas will be going digital in the future, we look forward to contributing even more to the digital cinema evolution across Europe.”
Serge Plasch, Chief Executive Officer XDC says, “We are pleased to be able to work with Barco for this deployment deal. We have a longstanding business partner history with Barco and are familiar with their digital cinema projectors. We know that Barco delivers the reliability and the service we are looking for to provide to our exhibitors.“
Luis Roboredo Mota Managing Director of ZON Lusomundo cinemas states, “We will be among the most innovative cinema operators in the world. With Barco's digital cinema projectors, not only will we be offering our spectators even better picture quality, we will also be able to extend our programming to alternative content at all of our theatres with more recorded and live 3D shows, live satellite events such as opera, concerts, and sports. In addition, going digital will allow us to become a more efficient company, lowering our operating costs whilst at the same time generating significant improvements in customer service.”
With the DP series, Barco has developed a modular digital cinema projector platform offering a cost effective solution at everyone's desire and for every screen size. To support its rapidly growing digital cinema installed base, Barco has launched a Certified Service Partner program to establish a worldwide support network with the highest quality local service and support.
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.
