Croatian Cinema Chain Blitz-Cinestar Chooses Barco as Exclusive Digital Cinema Supplier

Digital cinema pioneer Barco is proud to announce that Blitz-CineStar, Croatia's leading cinema operator, has selected Barco as exclusive digital cinema projector partner. Within the space of a year, the cinema chain will transform all of its ten multiplexes to state-of-the-art digital cinema complexes.

Last month, Croatian cinema chain Blitz-CineStar inaugurated its brand-new all digital flagship multiplex in Zagreb's prestigious new Arena Center. It is the most exciting multiplex in the capital of Croatia and is equipped with ten Barco DP2K digital cinema projectors. In addition, Blitz-CineStar operates nine other multiplexes that the company is converting to digital with the help of Barco. 

“A full conversion to digital cinema was a must for an ambitious chain like Blitz-CineStar,” says Hrvoje Krstulovic, Blitz-CineStar Board Member. “The bar had been raised very high, both for quality and the timeframe: we wanted a technology partner that could offer a reliable, high-quality and future-proof digital solution for all our multiplexes, within the space of just a year.” 

After carefully examining the available digital cinema projectors, Blitz-CineStar selected Barco's DP2K series. The cinema chain ordered all of the different DP2K projector types, each one tailored to fit the auditorium and screen size. “This approach helped us save costs, while providing us with the perfect set-up to meet our varying needs,” continues Krstulovic. 

With the rollout being halfway, Blitz-CineStar can already see the benefits: “Movies and cinema are our passion so we don't settle for anything less than the best technology. Barco has met, or even exceeded, our expectations. They succeeded in meeting the tight deadlines and the image quality is beyond compare. In this way, they really help Blitz-CineStar deliver the exciting cinema experience that we always dreamt of,” concludes Krstulovic. 

Barco's DP2K projectors represent the most complete projector family available today – with models for every screen size and budget. Bundling best-in-class light efficiency, lowest lamp cost and easy serviceability Barco's DLP Cinema® projectors guarantee perfect reproduction of movies time after time. They ensure that theater-goers enjoy the highest quality movie experience – with razor-sharp images, consistently uniform and accurate colors, and rich contrast.
