Barco finalizes new deal with China Film Group


Barco announced a new deal with state-owned China Film Group (CFG), the country’s largest film company. Over the next few months, 800 Barco digital-cinema projectors–including the brand-new Barco Alchemy integrated projection systems–will be deployed in CFG theatres nationwide. Barco is CFG’s largest cinema projector supplier and has been selected in the chain’s approved suppliers list for the next five consecutive years.

CFG produces and distributes films, imports and exports foreign releases and runs movie theaters across the country. The CFG cinema chain includes many theatres of various sizes and dimensions–from IMAX to small screens–all over the nation, a number that will be expanding rapidly between now and the end of 2015. Barco not only equips these theatres with advanced projection solutions, but offers a whole service package as well.

Barco Alchemy is the first integrated media server to reach the DCI 1.2 level that can play 4K films at 60 fps and 4K 3D content on a single projector.
