Cinex Plaza selects CE+S for circuit-wide digital-cinema conversion
Cinema Equipment and Supplies (CE+S) was selected by Venezuela’s third-largest theatre circuit, Cinex Plaza, to lead its digitization deployment across 60 screens nationwide. The digital-cinema conversion for Cinex represents the last one of its kind for any large-scale circuit in Latin America.
“This is the most important and innovative project that Cinex Plaza has undertaken in recent times and we are thrilled to count on the support and collaboration of CE+S once again,” said John Parra, general director at Cinex Plaza. “In today’s rapidly changing digital times, having the right partner by our side is fundamental to keep up with our commitment of excellence and service to our clients, the moviegoers.”
“Our partnership with Cinex Plaza is a testament to CE+S’ positioning as a global leader in digital-cinema technologies and our commitment to theatre owners to offer best-in-class customer service,” said Guillermo Younger, CEO of CE+S. “Clients around the world have put their trust in us to transform their operations into fully digital theatres and we are proud to collaborate with industry-leading partners like Barco and Dolby in these deployments.”
CE+S is providing a 360-degree digital system built on Barco and Dolby technology that will be pre-staged, assembled and tested at the company’s Miami headquarters before arriving at Cinex’ screens in Venezuela. The full range of products includes Barco 10S and C model projectors, and Dolby’s latest Integrated Media Server, the IMS2000, as well as the CP750 Digital Cinema Processor. Cinex Theatres will also be adding Cielo, CE+S’ cloud-based remote monitoring and technical support platform, to the spectrum of services of this implementation.
