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.

VUE Entertainment Set to Become Europe’s Largest Exhibition Circuit Powered By Sony 4K Digital Cinema

Vue Entertainment, one of the UK’s leading operators and developers of state-of-the-art multiplex cinemas, has reached an agreement in principle with Sony Europe to install 4K digital cinema projection systems across its circuit.
 
With over 36 million customers every year at its 68 sites and 657 screens, Vue Entertainment plans to become the largest cinema circuit entirely equipped with Sony 4K digital technology in Europe. This would mark the start of Vue’s full transition to digital projection and provide Vue audiences with the most state-of-the-art on-screen presentation available, delivering both a fully immersive 3D experience and superior 2D quality, thanks to Sony’s unique 4K technology.
 
Tim Richards, CEO, Vue Entertainment, said: “We are very excited to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Sony Europe for the deployment of their incredible digital 4K projectors across our circuit.
 
This represents a fantastic long term investment for the company offering numerous benefits to the business including a new world of programming flexibility and greater choice for our customers.”
 
David McIntosh, Sony’s Head of Digital Cinema in Europe, commented: “We are delighted to have reached such a significant agreement with Vue Entertainment. The potential collaboration of our two brands will help to deliver the best possible cinematic experience available on the market to movie-goers.
 
“This agreement means that Sony 4K projectors will be powering a significant proportion of the total screens in the UK, which validates our belief in our superior 4K technology. This also is set to be a landmark agreement paving the way for further Sony 4K deals throughout Europe.”
 
Further details on the agreement between Sony Professional and Vue Entertainment will be communicated at a later stage, as the specifics of the deal are finalised.
