Barco installs projectors throughout Belgium

Barco has announced that Thomson will deploy its 2k digital cinema projectors in 130 Kinepolis theatres throughout Belgium.
This is the first, full nationwide digital conversion of a theater network in Europe. The units will be supplied to Kinepolis via Technicolor Digital Cinema who will deploy, maintain and monitor all of the digital cinema systems, including Technicolor’s proprietary theatre management system (TMS).
“Equipping every theatre in Belgium with a digital cinema projector, expresses the vision and leadership of Kinepolis," said Joe Berchtold,
President of Technicolor Theatrical Services, and Head of Technicolor Digital Cinema. “We are delighted to partner with Kinepolis Group in what is indeed an important step in the global digital cinema history. We are pleased to include Barco’s market leading projectors that deliver the quality and reliability needed to make digital cinema an audience favorite.”
European cinema pioneer Kinepolis currently has 21 theatres featuring Barco 2k digital cinema projectors. A market leader in their own field, and an innovative trendsetter among multiplex cinemas, Kinepolis has
committed to 130 Barco 2k projectors based on DLP Cinema technology of Texas Instruments to convert their entire cinema chain network to digital throughout Belgium.
Kinepolis will convert approximately 50 percent of its Belgian multiplexes to digital cinema systems by early 2007. The transition of the circuit’s remaining screens in the country will be completed by the end of 2007.
Included in the roll-out will be the brand new cinema multiplex in Brugge, the first cinema to have digital cinema projectors installed from the outset.
