Following an extensive review over the past year, Kinoplex announced that it has selected Doremi to digitize 160 of its screens across Brazil. Quanta DTG/AAM is managing the transition.
Kinoplex has been a pioneer of cinema exhibition in Brazil since 1917, operating more than 232 movie theaters across 35 locations to date. With approximately 50,000 seats, it is by far the largest independent exhibitor in Brazil.
Luiz Severiano Ribeiro Neto, president of Kinoplex, said the company did not take the decision lightly. “Given our rich history as a company, we feel a constant responsibility to deliver the best experience possible for our guests,” he said. “At the same time, we must also utilize the most efficient, reliable tools available. Our careful review confirmed Doremi as the best solution.” The system will utilize the Doremi IMB/ShowVault DCP platform, which features dual 3G SDI inputs, HDMI 3D input with HDCP, 4K-projector image playback support, and scaling capabilities of 2K or 4K resolutions.
“We have been putting forth significant efforts in Brazil this past year and we are extremely pleased with Kinoplex’s decision to deploy Doremi’s IMB across their circuits,” said Michael Archer, vice president of digital cinema, Doremi Labs. “As always, we are dedicated to follow through with our utmost level of service and post-sales support.”
