Jinyi Cinemas has signed Caiz Optronics Corporation and Cinemeccanica to retrofit 100 digital projectors in China this year in the top multiplexes in the cinema chain. The agreement is believed to be the biggest contract to date to introduce laser projection in the Chinese cinema market on wide scale.

Cinemeccanica and its Gold Partner Caiz Optronics Corp have already supplied several LUX units for Barco and Christie projectors using the different LUX models as the 20K, 25K, 30K, 45K and LUX 60K (from 20.000 up to 60.000 lumens).

LUX, the RGB 6P cinema laser, was selected by the cinema chain after evaluating different laser projectors available in the market. The main benefits are reliability, simple installation, light uniformity and stability over time, excellent quality with different 2D/3D configurations and, thanks to the retrofit, save of the digital projectors investment already done.

“We are very pleased to announce that we have jointly worked with Jinyi Cinemas, the 17th largest cinema chain in the world, to select and to test the laser solution,” said Kevin Cai, Caiz Optronics Corp. President and CEO. “The results indicate that LUX laser solution is matching the technical and financial needs of our customers.”

“We are honored to be a partner of this important cinema group and help to innovate their cinema technology,” said Massimo Riva Cinemeccanica CEO. “We are proud to contribute to the growth of the quality in cinema shows and we are sure the spectators will appreciate an innovation which will transform each movie in a more addictive experience.”
