Sony Digital Cinema Equips New Gaumont Pathé Multiplex with Industry Leading 4K Digital Projectors

Sony Digital Cinema has been chosen by Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé, one of Europe’s leading cinemas chains, to equip all 11 screens in its new Pathé Le Mans multiplex exclusively with Sony 4K technology.

Scheduled to open in early 2014, the cinema will use Sony Digital Cinema’s 4K digital projection system to provide its customers with an exceptional visual experience and image quality when viewing the cinema’s film screenings. Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé has chosen to use the whole Sony Digital Cinema product range – including the SRX-R320, the world’s best-selling 4K projector, and the SRX-R515 projector that features new light source technology with six high pressure mercury lamps and a significantly improved on-screen contrast ratio of more than 8000:1. The cinema chain will also become the first exhibitor in France to install a large screen dual projector system using a set of two Sony SRX-R320s. 
 
Sony’s 4K technology offerings provide a visible resolution that is four times greater than ‘normal’ digital cinema, increasing the level of detail and definition of the image. As a result, picture quality is clearer with images such as skin texture and contrast appearing more realistic. 

Pierre-Franck Neveu, Sales Manager at Sony Digital Cinema in France, said: “We are delighted to be equipping the new Le Mans multiplex cinema with our unique 4K technology. The contract, signed with a major player in the French cinema industry, shows that 4K technology has become the expected standard for film projection in cinemas. More than ever before, moviegoers are demanding the very best cinema experience and the 4K solutions developed by Sony Digital Cinema consistently over deliver on this promise.”
 
A spokesperson for Gaumont Pathé commented: “The decision to install 4K technology is an important step in the history of digital film screening, bringing an amazing visual richness to films. Our aim has always been to innovate and to offer our customers exceptional image quality, which is why we have selected Sony Digital Cinema as our 4K supplier.”
 
R2D1, accredited Sony Digital Cinema solutions specialist, has been appointed by Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé to install the equipment.
