Las Vegas—Cinemaxx, a new exhibitor under Lippo Group in Indonesia, has selected Barco and GDC Technology as technology partners for its digital cinema deployment.

Lippo Group is a leading property developer with significant investments in retailing, media, hospitality, financial services, energy, IT and health care. With over 40 shopping malls in Indonesia, the conglomerate is planning to roll out high-end cinemas with close to 300 screens this year and at least 1,000 screens over the next 5 years.

“Lippo Group is one of the largest owners of shopping malls in Indonesia and we plan to leverage our strength as astute property developers to expand our multiplex network aggressively,” said Brian Riady, CEO of Cinemaxx. “With dedicated support from GDC Technology and Barco, who are both committed to driving state-of-the-art digital cinema technology, we have confidence to provide the best possible cinema experience to moviegoers.”

GDC Technology will spearhead the digital deployment as a total system integrator, providing comprehensive and quality installation and integration support for Cinemaxx. In addition to digital cinema servers, Cinemaxx will deploy GDC Technology’s TMS to manage and automate the running of its digital screens. Cinemaxx will be supported through GDC Technology’s NOC service from Singapore as well as an Indonesian GDC Technology office, scheduled to begin operations this year.

“The strong line up into a common vision of the three companies—Cinemaxx, Barco and GDC Technology—has made this a very important project,” said Wim Buyens, senior vice president entertainment and corporate for Barco (www.barco.com), which designs and develops visualization products for a variety of selected professional markets. “We will provide the highest quality option for exhibitors and we are committed to the success of Cinemaxx as it enters the exhibition market."
