Real Image Media Technologies and Barco in India forge strategic partnership
Real Image Media Technologies (RIMT) has recently entered into a strategic partnership with Barco in India that will bring 3,000 projectors to theatres across India in the next three years. The first 700 units of DCI-compliant Barco projectors are scheduled for installation during the first year, with deliveries starting in May 2013.
RIMT led the transition from analogue to digital in India and is a pioneer in digital cinema technology globally, with its Qube suite of end-to-end digital cinema solutions. RIMT chose to partner with Barco on account of its market leadership in digital cinema projection. The new understanding further strengthens that partnership.
Through the agreement, Barco’s range of 2K digital cinema projectors (the ultra bright DP2K) for any screen size will become available for the Indian market. Equipped with a Qube integrated media block and featuring Barco’s unique modular design, these projectors are set to bring the digital revolution to cinemas all over India.
“We have been using Barco projectors for the last few years and we are very happy with the quality of their products and the support provided by Barco India. On top of that, most of our service team is Barco-certified for installation and maintenance. So it seemed only logical to reaffirm our trust in them,” said Mr. Arvind Ranganathan, CEO of RIMT. “At Real Image, we have always been determined to bring only the best and the latest media technology to the Indian market. Through this partnership with Barco, we are all set to continue on that successful path for the coming years.”
