Real Image Media Technologies and Barco Further Strengthen Partnership in India

Deployment of over 3,000 DCI-certified projectors scheduled over the next three years
Real Image Media Technologies (RIMT) has recently entered into a strategic partnership with Barco in India. The first 700 units are scheduled for installation during the first year, with deliveries starting in May 2013. Over the next three years, 3,000 DCI-compliant Barco projectors are expected to be deployed in theaters across India.

Established in 1986, RIMT is a pioneer in digital cinema technology globally, with its Qube suite of end to end digital cinema solutions. RIMT is one of the leading digital cinema deployment entities and led the transition from analogue to digital in India. RIMT chose to partner with Barco on account of its market leadership in digital cinema projection. The new understanding further strengthens that partnership.

Range of 2K series
Through the agreement, Barco’s range of 2K digital cinema projectors (the ultra bright DP2K) for any screen size becomes available for the Indian market. Equipped with a Qube integrated media block® and featuring Barco’s unique modular design, these projectors are set to bring the digital revolution to cinemas all over India. “Together with RIMT, we’re very excited to continue playing a leading role in bringing Digital Cinema to India, a market with such a rich cinema history and tradition,” comments Tim Sinnaeve, Market Director Digital Cinema at Barco.

Logical choice
“We have been using Barco projectors for the last few years and we are very happy with the quality of their products and the support provided by Barco India. On top of that, most of our service team is Barco-certified for installation and maintenance. So it seemed only logical to reaffirm our trust in them,” said Mr. Arvind Ranganathan, CEO of RIMT. Wim Buyens, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Barco is happy with the next phase in our partnership: “We’re very proud to have a strong partner like RIMT at our side in the ever-promising Indian entertainment market. I’m convinced that both companies will reap a lot of benefits from this enhanced collaboration.”

Committed to success
Mr. Arvind Ranganathan believes that the close collaboration between both industry heavyweights will serve his company’s long-term goals: “At Real Image, we have always been determined to bring only the best and the latest media technology to the Indian market. Through this partnership with Barco, we are all set to continue on that successful path for the coming years.”

Mr. Abel Garamhegyi, Managing Director of Barco India, is enthusiastic as well: “For Barco, which is already the leading digital projector brand in India, the partnership is an ideal opportunity to further strengthen its foothold in India’s booming digital cinema market. “
