Global digital cinema technology leader Barco is supplying 800 digital cinema projectors to the China Film Group (CFG), which is leading the digitalization process for cinemas in China. To support this process, CFG will purchase a large quantity of Barco digital cinema projectors to convert existing theaters to digital and to supply newly constructed digital cinemas. What’s more, the annual number of devices purchased from Barco will increase each year.
China Film Group’s procurement plan for 2013 calls for more than 800 digital cinema projectors, offering a wide range of models to ensure the perfect match for every screen, from the premier theatre to small and mid-sized cinema.
