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.

Uptown Entertainment Teams with Sony to Enhance Theatre Experience

Conversion to 4K Digital Cinema Projection Delivers Superb Picture Quality and Alternative Content for Theatre-goers
Uptown Entertainment has converted their two Birmingham, Mich., locations to Sony Electronics’ 4K digital cinema technology to deliver an even more immersive movie-going experience, among other benefits. For a total of 19 screens, Birmingham 8 and Palladium 12 will feature Sony digital cinema technology. 

“This conversion is in line with our goal to be the best,” said Barb Zanetti, senior director of Uptown Entertainment, which includes the Palladium12 and Birmingham 8 theatres.  “From our seating to our concessions, and especially when it comes to sound and viewing, we want to deliver the very highest quality.  This conversion will mean that our customers get the best viewing experience for a wide range of digital entertainment – whether it’s the latest motion picture or something as unique as watching their favorite sports team or band perform.” 

With the conversion, which is expected to be completed by summer 2010, Uptown will also outfit several screens for 3D digital projection, combining Sony’s single-projector 3D lens system with RealD® 3-D technology, to enable the highest-quality 2D and 3D digital projection. 

Besides offering the highest image resolution of all commercial projection technologies, Sony’s 4K system will also allow Uptown to deliver alternative content to customers.  While plans for expanding offerings at the theatres are still underway, Uptown is excited to have the option to provide anything from live coverage of sports to a 3D broadcast of a concert. 

“This will really revolutionize the movie-going experience, and it will revolutionize our business as we are able to bring a whole new level of entertainment options to our customers,” added Zanetti.
Sony’s Digital Cinema Solutions and Services group will work with Uptown Entertainment on the integration, installation, maintenance and service support for its 4K conversion, providing the exhibitor with a complete turn-key solution for converting to digital technology. 

“We are excited to be working with Uptown Entertainment,” said Gary Johns, senior vice president of Sony Electronics’ digital cinema division. “They are committed to enhancing every aspect of the theater experience, specifically by expanding their focus on a broad alternative content program to bring fresh, innovative entertainment options to the big screen for its guests, and create new business opportunities for its operations.”
