“Converting to digital is our way of giving our customers access to the latest digital and 3D movies,” said Per Wermelin, technical manager at SF Bio. “After months of comparing various offers, we decided to sign up with Barco. Its projectors deliver high-quality DLP images and have for SF Bio the lowest total cost of ownership.”
