Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas today announced an exclusive three-year purchase agreement with Moving Image Technologies for Barco SP4k laser projectors for both new theatres and existing technology upgrades.
"Alamo is excited about this next generation of 4K laser projection technology to bring our guests the very best presentations available," said Frankie Vaquerano, director of presentation for Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. "These projector upgrades also come with lamp and power operational savings that will benefit Alamo for many years to come."
"We are excited to announce this exclusive relationship with Alamo Drafthouse, one of our long-standing partners," said MIT’s senior vice president Jerry Van de Rydt. "The industry is in the early stages of a multi-year technology upgrade cycle, and the Barco SP4K laser projector is a great way to enhance the moviegoer experience through its improved picture contrast, maximum picture brightness and vivid colors, all of which are on-screen benefits of Barco technology."
The SP4K models of the Barco Series 4 family bring native 4K resolution, higher contrast, and enhanced uniformity into the movie theatre. The Barco Active Image Management includes patented technology to guarantee sharp, consistent image quality over time.
