Abaco Cines Concludes Agreement with Ymagis and NEC for Digital Cinema Deployment

Abaco Cines, one of the most prominent Spanish cinema dedicated chains, has concluded an agreement for the deployment and installation of NEC digital cinema projectors to all their screens.
Abaco operates 284 screens located in 28 different cinemas covering most of Spain, and the deployment is being done in partnership with Proyecson and Ymagis, the European deployment entity leader in France, Spain, Germany and the Benelux.
This agreement reinforces Grupo Abaco’s commitment to digital cinema, and takes the Spanish cinema exhibition market another step towards full digitisation, under the distributors’ Virtual Print Fee (VPF) agreements managed by Ymagis.
Proyecson, the Valencia-based installation company with delegations in several Spanish cities, will be responsible for the installation of the NEC projectors throughout Grupo Abaco’s cinemas. Furthermore, the company has played a key role in securing the participation of NEC in this deployment.
Grupo Abaco's choice of partners in their cinemas’ digitisation process is the result of a long and careful process where not only the technical advantages of the selected systems were taken into account, but also the quality of the support systems they made available. In Ymagis, Grupo Abaco found the necessary flexibility and high level of technical expertise to ensure an optimization of the cinemas’ operation once fully digital.
Fernando Robredo, Grupo Abaco’s MD said: “In Ymagis we found the answers to our needs and a flexible approach that will allow us continue to control our cinemas’ programming and provide us with the tools that will ensure a smooth transition to digital. Partnering with Proyecson and manufacturer NEC ensures us the benefit from the latest technology and an extensive network of support.”
Mark Kendall, Business Development EMEA, Digital Cinema at NEC Display Solutions Europe said: "NEC recognises Abaco as one of the major cinema exhibitors in Spain, and together with the flexible VPF agreements offered by Ymagis and the expertise of integration provided by Proyecson, we are pleased to be part of this digitisation program. The Spanish cinema market has been slower to digitise than other European countries, and we hope to continue these partnerships for future successful development.”
Francisco Lafuente, Managing Director at Proyecson said:
"With over 50 years of industry experience, and a highly involved team, as well as being the only company in Spain with its own R & D department, allows us to address major projects such as the digitization of Grupo ABACO, always following implementation parameters that satisfies the needs of the most demanding customers, both in terms of high quality installation, as well as after sales services and support. 
Since the first digital installations made ​​in ABACO, in the early 2010, with NEC projectors NEC made available all the means that would allow this project to develop full scan. The collaboration with Ymagis, given the magnitude of the project, obtains more than satisfactory results that we are confident will be repeated with other customers. 
Given the high degree of professionalism shown by all participants in finding creative solutions that enable viable business model, we believe it will set an example and model to consider for future operations.”
Manel Carreras, General Manager, Spain & Vice President Sales and Business Development at Ymagis, said: “Grupo Abaco’s and Proyecson’s determination to find solutions to digitize the Abaco cinemas combined with the support provided by NEC has allowed Ymagis to put together a VPF solution tailored to this important exhibitor’s needs. We are proud to have been selected by Grupo Abaco to digitize their cinemas with Ymagis."
