Barco Signs Contract with Jinyi Time Cinema for the Deployment of 200 Digital Cinema Projectors
Barco, a world leader in visualization and display solutions, has signed a major contract for the deployment of 200 digital cinema systems for Jinyi Zhujiang Movie Circuit, China's sixth largest cinema chain.
Based in China's southern city of Guangzhou, Zhejiang Jinyi Zhujiang Movie Circuit Co., Ltd (Jinyi) is a joint venture between Jiayu Group and Guangzhou Cinema Chain. Jinyi specializes in cinema development and features some 200 screens across 10 cities, and is one of the mainland's leading cinema exhibitors.
The Barco contract calls for the deployment of its dynamic 2K Digital Cinema projector family of solutions, including twenty DP2K-32B, 170 DP2K-20C and 10 Barco DP2K-12C projectors.
We have been extremely happy with the performance of the 100 Barco digital cinema systems we installed last year,” says Xu Binbiao, GM of Jinyi. “Needless to say, the quality of Barco products speaks for itself. As we pursue the expansion of our cinema's, it's only natural that we partner again with Barco in our continued expansion into digital cinema.”
“We're happy to continue our relationship with Jinyi,” says Yan Fei, Manager Director of Barco Greater China. “Building upon last year's order, an additional 200 digital cinema projects is sure to enhance Jinyi's profile as a top cinema provider. This type of domestic growth bodes well for our investment in technical development and localized production to meet the customer demands of the China market.”
“Equipped with the latest DLP Cinema chip, the new DP2K-series offers the brightest and most cost-effective projection solution available on the market today. Barco is proud to be playing a major role in helping drive the Chinese cinema industry's transition to digital cinema.”
Featuring the latest DLP Cinema® Chip from Texas Instruments, the DP2K-32B is Barco's flagship projector — the brightest digital cinema projector in the industry, suitable for screens up to 32m wide. With new lenses, a new optical design, the industry's most efficient 6.5kW lamp and a remarkable maximum screen width, the DP2K-32B, truly exemplifies the company's leadership in image quality.
The DP2K-20C is Barco's digital cinema platform for large and mid-market venues. It delivers remarkable brightness without sacrificing resolution, features a modular design optimized for serviceability and overall system flexibility. The DP2K-20C is suitable for screens up to 20m and is also the most cost-effective 3D projector on the market today. The DP2K-12C is the perfect projector for small venues, allowing even the smallest cinemas — screens up to 12m — to have access to digital cinema, at an affordable price.
