Ballantyne of Omaha, Inc. (Amex: BTN), a motion picture projection, digital cinema and specialty lighting equipment and services provider, announced today that Strong Digital Systems (SDS) and Strong Technical Services (STS) will provide and install 75 NEC STARUS™ NC2500S Digital Cinema projectors with REAL D 3-D technology to Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC). All 75 installations are expected to be completed in time for the March 30th release of Walt Disney Pictures' animated feature film Meet the Robinsons in Disney Digital 3-D. Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

REAL D and Ballantyne have formed and financed a separate entity, Digital Link II, LLC to fund the digital projector purchase and installation. In turn, Digital Link plans to seek per-film virtual print fees from feature film studios in order to reduce the owner's and licensee's ultimate capital investment.

John P. Wilmers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ballantyne, commented, "We are pleased to team with REAL D to deliver a state of the art 3-D and 2-D digital projection solution to our longstanding customer, Regal Entertainment Group. The REAL D solution, combined with the state-of-the-art NEC STARUS projection system, delivers an impressive and memorable theater experience that will help to further differentiate Regal Entertainment Group in the cinema market. The agreement represents a win-win for all parties as it furthers the footprints of Ballantyne/NEC and REAL D, leverages our STS expertise in installation and delivers Regal a 3-D digital solution on a turnkey basis."
