JT Bioscopen to install Barco 6P laser projector

June 17, 2014

Dutch cinema chain JT Bioscopen, in partnership with dcinex, will install the Barco 6 primary Laser3D (6P) laser-illuminated projector in its brand-new Hilversum Media Park seven-screen multiplex.

With 21 multiplexes in 19 cities around the country, JT Bioscopen is the second-largest theatre chain in The Netherlands. In 2011, long-term Barco partner dcinex helped them convert to digital, deploying Barco digital-cinema projectors across their entire circuit.

Known as “Holland’s Hollywood,” the Hilversum Media Park houses all major Dutch TV and radio stations, production houses, studios and other companies in the audiovisual and entertainment business.

“For our new Hilversum Media Park multiplex, we really wanted to push the envelope on the experience we offer our audiences,” said Albert Jan Vos, managing director at JT Bioscopen. “As an early adopter we’ve always favored Barco’s cutting-edge digital-cinema technology, and we are overwhelmed with pride to be pioneering state-of-the-art laser-illuminated projection in The Netherlands—a true revolution in the industry and a key differentiator for the cinema experience.”

Barco’s 60,000-lumen laser-illuminated projector is the first cinema projector capable of showing 4K content at 60 fps and 3D movies in full 4K resolution.

“When I first saw a demo of the Barco laser-illuminated projector, I was extremely impressed by the razor-sharp images and brightness levels it displayed,” said Gerrit Doorn, manager of buildings and projects at JT Bioscopen.
