Wolff Cinema Groep Now with Sony Digital Cinema 4K
The group equipped three sites with Sony Digital Cinema 4K systems and, thus, sends out a clear signal to the Dutch market
The digital rollout continues gaining ground in the Netherlands. After Jogchem’s Theaters B.V., another large cinema circuit in Holland, announced to install digital cinema systems at its 60 cinemas together with FTT Filmtronics B.V., the Dutch FTT branch, last month, Wolff Cinema Groep, a company operating on a cross-national scale, decided to equip four sites with 4K systems of Sony.
In the framework of the digital deployment, Mustsee Euroborg in Groningen was equipped with two Sony SRX-R320 projectors and LMT-300 media blocks, the sites Cinema de Graaf in Huizen close to Amsterdam and CineStar Enschede close to the German border each received another unit. The complete installation was carried out by FTT Filmtronics who was also in charge of the test installations at several Mustsee locations for the groups Minerva and Wolff and has actively launched Sony 4K systems onto the Dutch market for more than one year already. In this context, two Sony systems had already been installed at Cinecity in Vlissingen in the Southwest of the Netherlands.
All installations also include the possibility to play out “3D on 4K” contents.
Jordi Wientjes, member of the board of management of Wolff Cinema Groep, said: “We have addressed the topic digital cinema at a very early stage already and now opted for Sony 4K as we are simply convinced about the technology. We think that this was the right time to deploy some of our core locations in order to be well prepared for the upcoming blockbusters.”
Thomas Rüttgers, Chairman of the board of management of FTT group added: “From the very beginning, we have already been co-operating with Wolff Cinemas in the field of digital cinema and have also installed 35mm equipment at many sites as e.g. at Mustsee in Groningen. For us, this step is another important benchmark for the digital rollout in the Netherlands and we are very happy that we are able to continue our excellent co-operation with Wolff Cinemas.”
