XPAND Adds 40 New Passive 3D Systems in The Netherlands
Amsterdam Booking Company in the Netherlands have unanimously decided to select XPAND Passive 3D Systems in their cinema theatres
The new XPAND passive 3D systems, and
glasses, follow the successful deployment of XPAND active 3D systems in 23 ABC
Cinema theatres throughout the Netherlands in 2009. All the systems are set to
be installed before the end of this year.
Paul Visser, owner and founder of ABC
said: “The new XPAND passive 3D system and glasses give us an outstanding
picture quality, in combination with the comfort that costumers demand today, and that is what it’s all about. Quality
and comfort. With the latest XPAND systems we can let our customers enjoy the
films the way their directors intended.
That’s what we did together with Xpand in
2009 for Walt Disney Studios’ Bolt 3D and later even more successful with 20th
Century Fox’ Avatar 3D. We were the first cinema chain to do so in the
Netherlands, and we are still proud of that fact!”
Continuing to raise the quality standard
for cinematic 3D systems in the Netherlands, cinema systems integrator and
service company Dcinex NL (formerly FTT Filmtronics NL) is currently finalizing
the installation of the 40 new passive 3D systems for ABC. The new
installations are part of ABC’s continued commitment to providing
state-of-the-art 3D Theaters to its patrons.
“XPAND has been very supportive in bringing their new passive 3D
solution to the Dutch exhibitors within the ABC group,” said Matthew Jones,
General Manager of Dcinex Benelux. “XPAND has always actively pursued high
quality 3D and their new passive 3D system is no exception. Add in the
excellent service we have enjoyed in our long standing business relationship
with XPAND, and you have the two key ingredients that matter to both Dcinex and
our customers; high quality and great service,” added Mr. Jones.
"The XPAND team is delighted to keep
working with ABC Group Cinema members who have decided to select XPAND new
passive technology based on the successful cooperation in the past with XPAND”,
stated XPAND CEO Maria Costeira. "ABC programmed theatres show a true
determination to bring the very best in entertainment to their moviegoers, and
their most recent investment in new 3D passive technology will deliver an
unprecedented immersive viewing experience to their audiences."
So far a total of 14 brand new XPAND 3D passive
systems were installed in Dutch theatres, while a total of 59 XPAND systems are
now operational in The Netherlands.
