Ballantyne Strong Expands Its Digital Cinema Footprint into Taiwan and Plans to Open Office in 2010

Ballantyne Strong, Inc. (NYSE Amex: BTN), a provider of digital cinema projection equipment and services, cinema screens and other cinema products reported today that it has expanded its Asian distribution rights into Taiwan for the NEC Line of digital cinema projectors.

Ballantyne’s Asian distribution territory now includes Indonesia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the People’s Republic of China, Singapore and Taiwan.

Ballantyne president and CEO, John P.
