Cinionic gives the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater a Laser-powered upgrade

LOS ANGELES – July 18, 2022 – Cinionic, the global leader in cinema solutions, now powers the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills with its brightest laser projection solution. The upgrade to Laser Projection by Cinionic elevates the theater’s movie presentation with stunning 4K laser picture quality that is exclusively available in cinema settings.

The new Barco laser projector from Cinionic provides high brightness, color gamut and exquisite picture quality. Industry-leading laser projection from Cinionic works seamlessly with the theater’s state-of-the-art sound system to present films at maximum technical accuracy.  

“We are honored to work with the Academy to bring 4K laser projection to its Goldwyn Theater,” said Wim Buyens, CEO, Cinionic. “At Cinionic, it is our mission to power the next generation of moviegoing with exceptional laser-powered cinema and provide filmmakers with the tools to showcase their films the way they were meant to be seen.”

“The Academy strives to support and lead with new technology, giving our members the absolute finest movie viewing experience. We are happy to partner with Cinionic on this projection upgrade to our state-of-the-art Samuel Goldwyn Theater,” said Kevin Collier, chair of the Academy’s Theater Standards Committee.

Cinionic oversaw the installation of the new projection stack and is providing ongoing technical support for the theater. The Samuel Goldwyn Theater is the second Academy theater powered by Cinionic, following the recent installation of laser projection at its Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.
