China Film Group orders 800 Barco projectors


Barco is supplying 800 digital-cinema projectors to the China Film Group (CFG), which is leading the digitization process for cinemas in China.

CFG will both convert existing theaters to digital and supply newly constructed digital cinemas. The annual number of devices purchased from Barco is expected to increase each year.

"We are really pleased that China Film Group has selected our leading technology to further develop the digital-cinema market in China,” said Wim Buyens, Barco’s senior VP, entertainment. “This rollout of digital-cinema technology to many more theatres will enable China’s film industry to reach and benefit a large audience of moviegoers.”
