Cinema 21 Group, a long-term partner of Barco in Indonesia, has equipped its auditorium with a Barco’s DP4K-60L 6P laser cinema projector. The companies say it is the first laser projector installed in the Asia-Pacific region. 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 companies 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.
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,” said 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.”
