Barco and Cinema 21 Group (Indonesia) pilot Flagship Laser projection in APAC region
Jakarta, Indonesia, 24 August 2015 — Barco, a global leader in digital cinema technology, is proud to announce the installation of the first Flagship Laser projector in the APAC region. Cinema 21 Group, a long-term partner of Barco in Indonesia, has equipped its auditorium with Barco’s ultra-bright 6P Flagship Laser cinema projector for large screens (DP4K-60L). The goal is to get a proper understanding of the projector’s operation in preparation of a more extensive rollout across the group’s halls and theaters.
Cinema 21 Group operates more than 800 screens in 33 cities across the Indonesian archipelago and is one of the fastest-growing exhibition and distribution giants in the APAC region. Always eager to be one step ahead of the competition, the group was looking into laser projection as way to drive business in the region.
From Las Vegas to Indonesia
During the CinemaCon trade fair in Las Vegas (US), the Cinema 21 Group delegation discovered Barco’s DP4K-60L; a top-of-the-line Flagship Laser cinema projector that brings brilliant brightness levels and cutting-edge image quality to large screens. Combining exceptional image quality with simplified operations and reduced operating expenses, the group quickly realized the potential of this innovative technology.
On top of that, Barco and Cinema 21 Group were no strangers to each other: the Indonesian group has already deployed more than 600 Barco digital cinema projectors across the country, as well as media servers and image processing products.
“Barco’s consistent quality and innovative spirit have persuaded us to pilot Barco’s Flagship Laser projection in the APAC region,” comments Suryo Suherman, president at Cinema 21 Group. “Furthermore, now that we are expanding rapidly nation-wide, we are confident that this technology has the potential to further drive our business.”
