XDC And Barco Partner With Benelux Exhibitor Euroscoop

Digital cinema pioneer Barco has announced a partnership with XDC and Euroscoop for the installation of 61 digital cinema projectors in six Benelux multiplexes. Euroscoop has been using Barco digital projectors for more than a year in some of its theatres and has chosen Barco projection for the complete digitisation of its chain.
Under the partnership XDC and Barco will roll out DCI-compliant projection systems co-financed by the Virtual Print Fee (VPF) model. Rollout is scheduled to begin in September 2009 with full digitalisation of the six cinemas throughout the rest of the year. Most of the Euroscoop theatres will be equipped for 3D screening.
Luc Van de Casseye, CEO of Euroscoop, said: "We are very happy to sign this agreement with XDC and Barco. Barco has been setting the technology pace in the cinema market and we know from our good experience with the Barco digital cinema projectors in our Tilburg complex that they have great reliability and the lowest possible cost of ownership."
Tim Sinnaeve, Sales Director EMEA for Barco's digital cinema business commented: "The contract with Euroscoop confirms the momentum in today's cinema market. Moreover, we are pleased to further strengthen our leading position in Europe with another reference customer joining our reference list."
Under the terms of the agreement, XDC will exclusively install DCI-compliant digital projection system: Barco 2K Cinema projectors and XDC's CineStore Solo G3 D-Cinema servers.
Barco's digital cinema projectors are based on the pioneering DLP Cinema technology from Texas Instruments, guaranteeing perfect reproduction of cinema content time and time again, ensuring moviegoers enjoy the highest quality film experience with consistent picture brightness, contrast and vibrant colours.
