Ajay Theatres has purchased 56 digital cinema projectors from Barco’s C-Series product line. The exhibitor will be placing a projector in every theatre in the chain from its smallest 100-seat venue to its largest which features a 40+-foot wide screen with seating for 350 moviegoers. All theatres will be equipped to show both 3D and 2D movies. 

In an effort to standardize Ajay's theatre platform and simplify operations the exhibitor elected to purchase 56 projectors including 53 DP2K-15C units and three Series 1 DP-1500 models acquired from Barco last year. “We knew that Barco had the brightest projector but what was even more important to us was their outstanding service and training program in addition to really great ongoing technical support. Four of us have completed Barco's Installation Service Level I training I have completed Barco's Advanced Service Level II training and we are ready to install projectors as soon as they arrive. Another key reason we decided to go with all Barco was the projector's modularity which makes the projectors so easy to maintain ” says Deepak Keshani owner of Ajay Theatres. “By offering a full range of digital cinema projectors supported by top-notch training and service we can provide a solution to suit every exhibitor's budget venue size and technical ability. Ajay Theatres will now be able to showcase first-run movies in 3D or 2D bringing high-quality entertainment to the area while keeping operating costs low an especially critical factor for an independent exhibitor ” says Todd Hoddick vice president digital cinema for Barco North America.
