Feb 29, 2012

Swedish cinema chain SF Bio selected Barco's DP2K and DP4K digital-cinema projectors for its conversion to digital.

With 244 screens in 35 cinemas, SF Bio is the leading theatre circuit in Sweden. It's also one of the oldest continuously operating cinemas in the world, with a history dating back to 1905.

“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.”
