Sony Digital Cinema 4K gives audiences an entertainment experience they’ll never forget in 2D or 3D. There’s a complete family of Sony 4K projection systems to suit every cinema operator, from small boutique screens to the largest multiplex. All our easy-to-use projectors deliver 4K resolution images that viewers love, bursting with rich colour and industry-leading 8000:1 average contrast ratio. Sony’s SRX-R500 series of projectors are also HDR-ready, meeting brightness and contrast requirements for screening the latest 4K movies mastered for High Dynamic Range presentation. Spectacular 4K images are matched by impressively low running costs. The long-lasting HPM multi-lamp array in all our SRX-R500 Series projectors is more energy efficient than traditional Xenon lamps, reducing routine maintenance and cutting the risk of revenue-threatening dark screens. A compelling choice for the big screens, our Premium Large Format (PLF) projection solution outshines costly first generation laser systems, with unrivalled 4K picture quality at light levels up to 60,000 lumens.

Sony Announces Agreement with Muvico Entertainment to Install Complete 4K Digital Cinema Systems

Sony Electronics’ Digital Cinema Solutions and Services group has signed an agreement with Muvico Entertainment that will outfit its existing and new complexes with Sony’s 4K projection technology.  

Muvico’s Rosemont, Ill., theater was the first theater in the United States to be fully equipped with Sony’s 4K digital projectors and, following the success of that theater, Muvico made the decision to enter into this agreement with Sony. The rollout begins this winter with the opening of Muvico’s Thousand Oaks, Calif., facility. 

The agreement covers existing Muvico theaters, which will be upgraded to the digital technology, as well as new locations that Muvico builds in the future. 

In addition to committing to Sony’s 4K projectors for its full conversion to digital, the exhibitor plans to use a range of Sony products in its facilities. These include LCD displays in lobby and concession areas for digital signage, menu boards and full-motion video trailers; as well as VAIO® computers, PlayStation™ gaming systems, security cameras and more. 

Muvico, a leader in the theatrical exhibition industry and one of the premier circuits in the U.S., has 13 locations with a total of 248 screens.

“4K technology gives us a solid foundation for converting our chain to digital,” said Mike Whalen, president of Muvico. “It provides our guests with resolution and picture quality never before seen on the big screen.

“It also opens up so many new business opportunities for displaying alternative content in our theaters such as live concerts and sporting events,” he added. “Having access to Sony’s full product line will further improve the overall customer experience and our operations by delivering a more attractive and interactive presentation of products that are vital to the revenue stream of any theater. The fact that Sony can deliver all this for us as part of one fully integrated solution was very attractive to us.”
Sony’s DCSS group will work with Muvico on the integration, installation, maintenance and service support for this roll-out, providing the exhibitor with a complete turn-key solution for converting to digital technology. 

“Muvico’s vision is that exhibitors need to offer more complete services, and they have been a pioneer in re-defining the movie-going experience,” said Mike Fidler, senior vice president of Sony’s Digital Cinema Solutions and Services group. “They’ve extended their focus far beyond the auditorium and into the lobbies, restaurants, and more, truly turning the movie theater into a digital destination.

“Working with them to further the use of 4K technology, as well as maximize Sony’s product and technology expertise, will simply elevate this experience to an entirely new level,” Fidler said. 

The new Thousand Oaks location will feature Muvico’s “Premier Concept” theme, similar to their Boca Raton, Fla. and  Rosemont facilities, offering such services as complimentary valet parking, reserved seating, a digital arcade and access to a full-service restaurant and bar for guests 21 years and older.
