Besides the deal with Reel Cinemas in Dubai, Barco also shared this exciting news at CineEurope: the ‘all-Barco laser’ concept will soon debut in Europe. This summer, our long-term customer Kinepolis Group will open a multiplex in Breda, the Netherlands, featuring one Barco Flagship Laser and nine Barco phosphor laser projectors. In Kursk, Russia, the new GRINN FILM multiplex will be fitted with two Barco Flagship Laser and seven laser phosphor projectors.
Kinepolis: a true believer
Kinepolis Group believes in the power of our laser technology, that’s for sure. In 2014, it was the first European cinema exhibitor to introduce Barco’s Flagship Laser technology. Now it reconfirms its trust by going all-Barco laser in Breda (1 DP4K-30L Flagship Laser projector, 5x DP2K-15CLP and 4x DP2K-20CLP laser phosphor projectors). CEO Duquenne: “We’ll now be able to offer the moviegoers in Breda the best possible imaging technology. More than that, the choice of Barco’s Flagship Laser and laser phosphor projector also ensures enhanced ease of use and even cost and energy savings.”
Barco really stands out
Duquenne’s peers in Russia are just as confident about the ROI of Barco’s laser projectors. “We had great past experience with Barco’s xenon cinema projectors,” explains Pavel Greshilov, GRINN’s Deputy Director-General. “After visiting seminars and viewing Barco’s Flagship Laser projectors at work, we concluded that, once again, Barco technology really stands out from the others.” The GRINN FILM multiplex at Kursk’s brand-new MEGA GRINN shopping mall will feature 2 Flagship Laser projectors (1x DP4K-60L and 1x DP4K-45L) and 7 laser phosphor projectors (3x DP2K-15CLP and 4x DP2K-20CLP). To offer its audience even more ‘magic’, GRINN will equip all nine new theaters in Kursk with AuroMax®, our immersive sound rendering technology.
