Cineplanet Completes Extensive Digital Cinema Conversion with Barco and Bardan, Continues Expanding with New Complexes in Peru and Chile

Barco, the global leader in digital cinema projection, in collaboration with Bardan Cinema, a full-service distributor and digital cinema integrator serving Latin America, have elevated the entertainment quality of Cineplanet’s 200+ movie theaters and are moving forward by outfitting numerous new theaters. 
 
Cineplanet has proven itself to be one of the most enlightened and progressive players in the Latin American market, constantly dedicating themselves to enhancing the experience they provide their moviegoing clientele. They have modernized their theaters with premium amenities and the best 3D technology to meet the demands of an increasingly sophisticated audience.

One essential ingredient in the success of their mission to provide the highest quality cinematic entertainment available has been employing the diverse lineup of digital cinema projectors offered by Barco, from their compact DP2K-10Sx with integrated media server for smaller auditoriums to the impressive DP4K-32B for its largest movie houses.

“In placing our trust with Bardan and Barco, we knew that we would receive the hands-on attention and unwavering dedication to our needs necessary to achieve a smooth conversion of our cinemas,” comments Fernando Soriano, CEO for Cineplex S.A. “We also highly value their superior customer service and support, which will ensure reliable operation of these outstanding projectors for years to come.”

Dedicated to seamless integration
Bardan Cinema has orchestrated all aspects of these deployments for Cineplanet.  Calling upon their half-century of experience in the cinema industry, they coordinated logistics and technical design for all sites across Cineplanet’s vast territory, ensuring both a smooth transition to digital and the highest caliber results in the region.

“I’m sure I speak for Barco as well as for us here at Bardan when I say that we deeply appreciate the opportunity to continue serving Cineplanet as they move so solidly into the next era of cinema,” comments Daniel Benitez, CTO for Bardan Cinema. “The coming years promise to be very exciting ones in the world of cinema and we are grateful to be working with such strong partners on both sides of the equation: reliable vendors like Barco and bold, motivated exhibitors like Cineplanet that are always looking to better serve their patrons.”
