Barco Partners With Strong Technical Services

A global leader in digital cinema technology, Barco, has announced the signing of a professional services agreement with Ballantyne Strong, a global leader in cinema projection products and services.
As outlined in the one-year, renewable, non-exclusive agreement, Ballantyne's industry-leading service organisation, Strong Technical Services (STS), will provide Barco with digital cinema projection service and support, including, but not limited to, on-site installation and service, as well as ongoing maintenance services for Barco's US customers.
Ballantyne's STS subsidiary was established in 2006 to serve the market's growing digital cinema service demands, and they are now recognised as one of the largest and most capable digital cinema service solutions in the industry.
Having built a national team of highly qualified digital cinema projection field technicians, STS is certified to install and service all digital network configurations and related peripherals.
Filip Pintelon, President of the Media and Entertainment division, said: "The service agreement with STS is part of Barco's desire to establish partnerships with the best providers servicing the needs of our growing install base of digital cinema projectors and associated servers."
John P. Wilmers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ballantyne, said: "Given Barco's leadership in the digital cinema industry, we are very excited to partner as their primary digital cinema service provider in the US and deliver the broad array of specialised services required for the ongoing rollout of digital projection equipment.
"Over the past year, Barco has delivered a very high level of training and ongoing support for our field service technicians, ensuring they have the cutting-edge knowledge and experience to seamlessly install and maintain Barco's full line of digital cinema solutions. This agreement reflects both organisations' unwavering commitment to putting the needs of our customers first, and we are excited about forging a strong, long-term partnership."
Todd Hoddick, Vice President of Digital Cinema at Barco N.A., said: "Ballantyne's Strong Technical Services group has demonstrated industry-leading expertise and a customer service orientation that echoes the commitment we make to each of our customers.
"We could not partner with a better group to execute on the growing variety of technology and services our customers require and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
