Point90 Cinemas is the first major cinema multiplex in the Fifth Settlement, New Cairo, Egypt, located right in front of the American University in Cairo, inside the Point90 mall. Its aim is to offer the ultimate cinema experience to the audience, with 11 premium screen halls equipped with the latest movie projection and sound technology. As part of that effort, Point90 is installing Volfoni 3D systems.
Systems integrator Waves Inc. is handling the installation.
“We have known Volfoni for a long time now,” said Ramzi Khoury, managing director with Point90 Cinemas. “Their long-term activity worldwide has allowed for the necessary trust to create this collaboration. It will ultimately benefit the audience with brighter 3D projections.”
To adapt to the large variety of Point90 auditoriums, Volfoni provides a 3D one-stop shopping. The installation will be made using the innovative technology patented by Volfoni: SmartCrystal Cinema, including the SmartCrystal Diamond, which the company says is the best-selling hi-LEF 3D system in the world.
All the 3D systems are made in Europe and allow remote and NOC control.
“Volfoni is a partner that can provide a solution for any projection situation without compromising on quality,” said Claudio Violante, CEO of Waves. “Their 3D know-how and their flexibility is the key for us as an integrator. Those are valuable factors in order provide a top-class service to Point90, one of the finest Cinemas in Egypt.”
“We are extremely proud and honored by the trust expressed by Point90 and Waves. They are shaping today’s cinema exhibition in Egypt,” said Alain Chamaillard, managing director, EMEA & CIS with Volfoni. “We share a common dedication to high quality technology that will provide stunning film experience to the audience.”
