CinemaNext, the European specialist in cinema exhibitor services (Ymagis – ISIN: FR0011471291, MAGIS, PEA-PME eligible) and Omniplex Cinema Group, Ireland’s largest cinema circuit, today announced the signing of an agreement for the sale and roll out of RGB+ Laser-light source upgrades and light engine clean for Barco projectors in 29 Omniplex auditoriums. The roll out across 24 Omniplex cinemas in Ireland and Northern Ireland will take place through the second half of 2019 and adds to the 2018 upgrade to Laser of 15 of Omniplex’s largest screens.
 
“We are delighted to be embarking on this renewal project with CinemaNext,” explains Paul Anderson, Managing Director of Omniplex Cinema Group. “Brand-new laser RGB light sources provided by Cinionic will be used to retrofit existing Xenon lamp-powered projectors in many of our larger, predominantly 3D auditoriums. It will also mean no more lamp replacements in the upgraded projection booths, a 30% increase in light output and 78% less power consumption vs. Xenon lamp projection. Not only will we lower our operating costs, but we will also deliver a consistent moviegoing experience for Irish audiences.”
 
“We’ve enjoyed a lengthy partnership with Omniplex and are thrilled to be spearheading this retrofit project in collaboration with our manufacturer, Cinionic,” adds Jerry Murdoch, Country Manager for CinemaNext UK & Ireland. “By replacing their current lamp houses with a compact laser module, Omniplex will not only extend the lifespan of their existing projectors but also raise the bar on image quality with greater contrast, better uniformity and image consistency as part of their renewal strategy.”
 
“The Laser upgrade program with CinemaNext and Omniplex illustrates the ability to easily upgrade Barco Series 2 Xenon projectors with unparalleled efficiency and our world-class laser solutions,” says Rod Wheeler, VP Sales, Western Europe at Cinionic. “As we look to the future of cinema, Cinionic is poised to power exhibitors, such as Omniplex, with next-generation services elevating the exhibitor and moviegoer experience.”
