Barco has announced that it has installed 10,000 units of its digital cinema projectors install bases thus far in Greater China. The company says it is the first manufacturer to reach this number in China.

CFG-Barco is responsible for the installation of Barco digital cinema projectors and after-sale service in even the most remote areas of China, such as Hainan and Tibet. Over the years, the company has set up a reliable service network, supported by over 100 in-house customer service engineers who take care of installation, training, inspection repair and maintenance. On top of that, more than 2,000 engineers from partner companies have graduated from Barco University and are ready to provide local users with comprehensive and professional services for Barco products.

Barco says the trust of its customers is the main reason for the company’s success in the region. “Thanks to their confidence, we been able to maintain a market share in China of over 60 percent,” says Phil Chen, general manager of CFG-Barco. “And the future looks even brighter. With the booming of the local film industry and the rollout of China’s 12th Five-Year Plan, it is estimated that the number of new digital screens will skyrocket. Needless to say, we will continue to consolidate the partnerships with our customers and are committed to provide premium products and services to address their demands in the best way possible.”

Wim Buyens, senior vice president of Barco and general manager entertainment division says, “This is a major milestone for Barco in China and an acknowledgement of our contribution and commitment to the local market. We will strain every nerve to keep providing our digital cinema customers with the best immersive solutions and to offer moviegoers an increasingly striking experience.”
