2012-12-11 - Chinese Exhibitor First to use a Barco S2K Projector to Show Commercial Movies in China

Digital Cinema pioneer Barco announces that its newest DP2K-10S digital cinema projector, based on the 0.69” DLP Cinema® chipset, has been selected by Hunan FAYOO Film Culture Industry Investment Management Co., Ltd. (‘FAYOO’) and installed at its newly-opened cinema in Taojiang, Hunan Province, China. This makes FAYOO the first exhibitor in China to use an S2K projector to show commercial movies.

In order to meet the requirement for exhibiting domestic and Hollywood blockbusters, small and medium-sized digital cinemas need to upgrade to a cost-effective solution. To meet this demand, Barco has launched the DP2K-10S projector, the industry’s first DCI-compliant and fully integrated digital cinema projector for small screen theatres.

Barco S2K projectors are being installed in 5 theaters of FAYOO’s newly-opened cinema. Furthermore, CFG-Barco, the joint venture between Barco and China Film Group, has stated that over 100 Barco S2K projectors will be provided to local cinemas in China by the end of this year.

Mr. Cao Yu, Chairman of Hunan FAYOO Film Culture Industry Investment Management Co., Ltd., commented: “Investments in local theaters are part of our strategic deployment. Barco’s cost-effective, highly reliable S2K projector is just what we need to enable our small-sized cinema to exhibit domestic and overseas blockbusters and provide moviegoers with a premium cinema experience.”

Wim Buyens, Senior Vice President Barco and Head of the Entertainment Division, said: “I am very proud that our DP2K-10S projector has received such high recognition from the market worldwide. This proves that our product research and development are on the right track, the best of 2 worlds no compromised towards the cinema experience and DCI requirement and the lowers TCO, well suited for our China market. We will continue to increase the R&D investment and supply more digital cinema projection systems for more cinemas.”

Specifically designed for small screens
Based on the 0.69” DLP Cinema® S2K chipset, Barco’s DP2K-10S features exceptional brightness, vibrant and stable color, and perfect image ratio, enabling small and medium-sized theaters to provide an outstanding visual experience for their audiences. Furthermore, the DP2K-10S won the Best Product Award at the 2012 Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition (BIRTV) in August – a clear indication of its exceptional market potential in the future.

Mr. Chen Xuxiang, General Manager of CFG-Barco (Beijing) Electronics Co., Ltd., stated: “The DP2K-10S projector was developed with the involvement of Barco's China R&D team and currently rolling out of our production line in China. FAYOO is an important partner, and I am very glad that this product’s first installation is in FAYOO’s cinema. This encourages us to continue to provide comprehensive solutions for a variety of clients, with the goal of accelerating the development of China’s cinemas.”
