Kinoton was one of the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival’s official suppliers and provided digital cinema and film technology and professionally supported the festival team in pulling off this technical and logistical tour de force. Dr. Ing Reiner Chemnitius the Berlinale’s technical supervisor is very upbeat about the results: Kinoton has a long tradition of providing equipment and technical support to the Berlinale – this year for the first time also including digital projection systems. The four DCS Digital Cinema Solutions functioned seamlessly with our technical infrastructure and digital workflow. In addition to delivering impeccable picture quality they were extremely easy to operate despite being fed a wide variety of digital formats. In addition to the three planned Kinoton DCS Digital Cinema Solutions at the World Culture House the Martin Gropius Building and hall 2 of the CineStar Cubix theatre at short notice the Berlinale required a fourth digital system in hall 6 of the CinemaxX. Kinoton took only two days to supply and install the additional DCS system also configuring it to accommodate the digital formats output by the festival’s proprietary encoding system. And during the Berlinale Kinoton was constantly on call to immediately deal with any technical problems and ensure trouble-free shows.
