Eclair finalized an agreement with German cinema exhibitor Timebandits GmbH & Co. Kinobetriebs KG to fully equip its flagship Berlin cinema, theHackesche Höfe Kino, with EclairColor HDR technology, thus becoming the first all-EclairColor cinema complex in the world.

“We are delighted to see Hackesche Höfe Kino, considered one of the best art-house cinemas in Germany, embrace our HDR technology,” stated Michael Krauth, general manager of Eclair Deutschland.

For Gerhard Gross, managing director of the Hackesche Höfe Kino, “We promise our guests the best experience and that’s exactly what we will deliver with EclairColor by helping bring back the magic of the movies. EclairColor enhances the big-screen experience with more brightness, crisper images, greater depth of field, and more density, and it applies from U.S. blockbusters to independent movies.”

“Germany is a leading market in Europe for the implementation of our EclairColor HDR technology with 51 screens, 10 of which are located in Berlin alone, including the Cineplex Titania Filmpalast and the Neue Eiszeit Kino,” explained Georg Miros, Eclair sales and business development manager. “Before the end of October, the five-screen Hackesche Höfe Kino complex will be equipped with EclairColor technology powered with Sony Digital Cinema 4K SRX-R515P projection systems. Berliners will be able to enjoy considerably higher image quality from every one of the complex’s 685 seats.”

There are currently 105 EclairColor screens located across Germany (51) and France (46), the United Kingdom (3), Italy (1), Switzerland (1), Tunisia (1), Spain (1) and the USA (1). For the full list of cinemas available in EclairColor and film lineup, visit
