University of Nebraska Purchases First Ever DLP™ Cinema Projector in University System

Barco Digital Cinema is pleased to announce that National Cinema Supply Corporation (NCS), a Barco Digital Cinema dealer, has installed the very first DLP™ Cinema Projector in a university setting at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). UNL purchased a Barco D-Cine DP-40 projector with ASCAR Router & RC 567 remote control system and a Barco SLM G5 DLP™ projector for its Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center. The center houses two public theatres. The Joseph H. Cooper Theater, which seats 236 and features the Barco D-Cine DP-40 projector, officially opened on December 10, 2002 with the Midwest premiere of About Schmidt starring Jack Nicholson and Kathy Bates. The film’s director Alexander Payne presented the show and held a question and answer session afterwards. The other theatre, which seats 106 and features a Barco SLM G5 DLP™ projector, opened to the public on January 10, 2003.

Danny Lee Ladely, Director, Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center, stated, "Thanks to Barco Digital Cinema, National Cinema Supply, and Mary Riepma Ross, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center is on the cutting edge of technological advances in the presentation of the art of the moving image.  Digital cinema is the new technological wave of the future for the film industry with incredibly significant and beneficial ramifications for both Hollywood as well as American Independent Film.  The exceedingly high quality of Barco equipment, coupled with the extraordinary installation and service provided by Barco and National Cinema Supply ensures that the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center will be able to ride the crest of that wave."

"NCS is an experienced and highly skilled Cinema design and equipment supply company. As our dealer, we rely on NCS to bring the cinema expertise to projects such as this that guarentee their success," stated Harry Mathias, Director of Digital Cinema, America for Barco. "This project is a prime example of their skill in action."
