CJ CGV the largest theatre chain in Korea has converted 58 additional screens to 3D with MasterImage digital 3D cinema systems and will supply systems for all of the chain’s 160 3D theatres. MasterImage 3D has also installed four systems in Korea's Lotte Cinema in Suncheon. These installations combined with existing systems at Primus Cinema Ya Woo Ri Cinemas and more theatres across Korea bring MasterImage's total to 175 of the country's estimated 250 digital 3D screens which is more than 70 percent of Korea's total 3D exhibition market share. CGV Manager Sung woo Kang says MasterImage 3D's system offers an outstanding value compared to other products on the market and it is simple to install. Also with the high resolution picture quality audiences' responses to the presentation are great. Younghoon Lee founder chairman and CEO of MasterImage 3D says From our US headquarters and offices in Asia and Europe we are aggressively converting theatre markets all over the world. Exhibitors are recognizing that our ownership-based model and passive-glasses approach offers them a different and often more attractive business proposition than competitive systems and they're demonstrating that recognition by choosing MasterImage in increasing numbers.
