New business models and forward-looking ideas for operating in a changed market environment are the goals of Kinoton Digital Solutions GmbH, which is now beginning operations as planned on July 1, 2014 from its base in Germering, Germany. This successor to Kinoton GmbH (in liquidation) will continue to offer customers custom-tailored, sustainable, complete cinema solutions as well as a comprehensive range of services and products.
Harald Bergbauer and Lutz Schmidt, the managing directors of Kinoton Digital Solutions GmbH, are seasoned experts on cinema and studio technology. Both of them possess more than 2 decades of industry experience and have successfully held strategic and operational responsibilities at Kinoton GmbH for many years. Thanks to them, Kinoton Digital Solutions GmbH will continue offering a full range of complete cinema and studio solutions, while carrying the globally renowned Kinoton brand forward and repositioning it in a changed market environment.
Kinoton Digital Solutions GmbH will offer a broad portfolio of professional projection and audio solutions. Its many years of experience in planning, project management, sales and support are a guarantee of perfect digital cinema. The international dealer network will ensure reliable customer care and support. It will be backed by KRS remote support and our state-of-the-art Network Operation Center (NOC).
Lutz Schmidt explains Kinoton’s concept for the future as follows: “We want to help our customers choose and develop existing and new system solutions by letting them benefit from the extensive industry experience and knowledge we have gained over the course of many years. For our customers, this means high-quality technical solutions for ensuring a leading-edge cinema experience while remaining cost-effective and tapping new sources of revenue with new technologies and formats.”
“Our enterprise will concentrate on providing professional services based on our employees’ competence and experience, as well as on innovative service approaches like Kinoton Cine Perfect. This will make sure that our customers continue to receive first-class support and all of the products that in the past were supplied by Kinoton GmbH (in liquidation). The same commitment also applies to all new projects and future technologies,” adds Harald Bergbauer.
