Cinemeccanica and Barco Sign Contract with Cinéville, Further Expanding Digital Cinema Roll-Out in France
Cinemeccanica and digital cinema pioneer Barco are proud to announce another digital cinema deployment deal in France. Both companies have signed a contract with Cinéville for the installation of thirty Barco 2K digital cinema projectors in five multiplexes.
Located in the West of France, Cinéville is a fully owned subsidiary of Soredic, one of the most important exhibition and booking groups in the country. For their digital conversion, financed by Ymagis, they turned to Barco Value Added Partner Cinemeccanica. During the summer of 2009, thirty Barco digital cinema projectors will be installed in Cinéville's theaters in Hénin-Beaumont, Rennes, Laval, La Roche-sur-yon and Quimper.
Yves Sutter, General Director Cinéville, comments, “We decided to partner with Cinemeccanica and Barco because of the excellent image quality, both in 2D and 3D setups.”
Cinemeccanica and Barco have been cooperating for a long time and signed a Value Added Partnership in 2007. Under the terms of this agreement, Cinemeccanica promotes and supports Barco's 2K digital cinema projector range across southern Europe.
“I am very proud that Cinéville has joined our customer list. Together with Barco, we will make sure that their digital rollout fully meets their expectations, both in terms of projector technology as well as customer service,” says Patrick Muller, General Director, Cinemeccanica.
Tim Sinnaeve, sales director EMEA for Barco's digital cinema business, adds, “Closely following our deal with Cap Cinéma, this contract confirms Cinemeccanica and Barco's leading role in France's digital conversion.”
Barco's digital cinema projectors are based on the pioneering DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments, guaranteeing perfect reproduction of cinema content time and time again, ensuring moviegoers enjoy the highest quality film experience with consistent picture brightness, contrast and vibrant colors.
