Barco Digital Cinema Projectors Selected for Brand-New Cineplex in Singapore

Barco, a technology leader in the Digital Cinema industry, is proud to announce that Golden Village Multiplex Pte Ltd., Singapore's leading cinema exhibitor, will equip its new multiplex, Golden Village Katong, with Barco's projector technology. Golden Village Katong is a fully digital cinema multiplex comprising eight auditoriums. 

The installation includes Barco's ultra-bright DP2K-12C, DP2K-20C and DP2K-23B projector models.“Having researched on the various digital cinema projectors in the market, we have selected Barco projectors as they offer the best value in terms of cost of ownership and performance. As a result, we can offer our valuable patrons an ultimate quality movie experience in any GV Cinema in Singapore,” says Lee Kin Guan, Technical Services Manager at Golden Village Multiplex Pte Ltd. “I have seen and interacted with the Barco South East Asia team and they are always willing to assist in the deployment as well as imparting valuable technical knowledge to my team. Their true spirit of sharing technical knowledge and field experience during the training not only gears up the GV technicians but also increases their confidence to take on any technical intervention.” 

Kurt Rieder, CEO of the Golden Village Katong, adds: “We are very excited about partnering with Barco at GV Katong, our first all-digital cinema. We will rely on Barco to assist us in this milestone and bring world-class know-how and technology to our team.” 

Golden Village's choice for Barco technology affirms Barco's trusted line of digital cinema products. “With our strong local presence in Southeast Asia, we are committed to offering the highest level of service and support to all our customers. Local certification training, in-country parts depot support and managed services are in place and running – so we're ready today to deliver the highest level of support that Golden Village requires,” comments Eddie Tan, General Manager, SEA, Entertainment & Simulation at Barco. 

Golden Village Katong is the 10th cineplex to be opened by Singapore's leading cinema exhibitor. It will be the world's first Peranakan-inspired boutique cinema. The new Golden Village Katong cineplex consists of eight auditoriums, including two premium Gold ClassTM auditoriums 

Barco's DP2K/4K family is known for being the most complete range of DCI-compliant digital cinema projectors in the industry, including 8 different models – all of which are praised for their excellent image quality and ease of maintenance. Thanks to their superior optical design and sealed engine, the projectors guarantee ultra-bright movie projections on any screen.
