The Independent Cinema Alliance has added a new program by Digital Light Sources to offer laser phosphor upgrade kits for digital cinema projectors to its members. As the nation’s only buying group for exhibitors, the ICA plays a vital role in leveling the playing field and building a competitive position for independent cinemas operating throughout North America.
The ICA’s mission is to protect the access of all Americans to movie theaters and large-screen entertainment by creating opportunities to independent exhibitors who serve communities throughout the United States.
DLS has collaborated with CineAppo – a manufacturer of DCI compliant Laser-Phosphor ALPD 4.0 Upgrade Kits that are designed for many cinema projectors and come with a two-year factory warranty and 30,000 hours service life. Extended warranties are available for seven-to-eight years.
“By partnering with DLS, ICA members can now effectively reduce operational costs and have consistent, bright laser quality images on their screens to enhance the movie watching experience,” said ICA president Rich Daughtridge.T”his partnership adds to our existing portfolio of cost saving programs.”
“DLS is very excited to work with the ICA on this unique and much needed program,” said Sami Haddad, president of DLS. “This opportunity can only emphasize our company’s position and commitment to ICA members—giving them a viable solution to upgrade xenon projection equipment, impress their moviegoers and still have [operating expense] efficiency.”
