Barco Launches Financing Program to Help Movie Exhibitors Invest in 3D Immersive Cinema Sound

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema technology, has teamed up with CSI Leasing, Inc. to provide financial assistance to theater owners desiring to upgrade their cinema experience with Barco’s immersive cinema sound format, Auro 11.1. 
 
Available in North America, the Barco Auro Financing Program provides a variety of financing solution options designed to meet the unique needs of movie exhibitors, many whom have recently converted to digital cinema during the last couple of years. 
 
“We understand that, on the heels of converting their theater circuits to digital cinema projection, many exhibitors may want special financing to take the next step toward immersive cinema by upgrading to Auro 11.1 by Barco,” comments Patrick Lee, Vice President Digital Cinema for Barco North America.  “We don’t want anything to stand in the way of their ability to create their ‘Cinema of the Future.’” This is why we’ve teamed with CSI Leasing, a leader in equipment financing, to offer a leasing program featuring low rates and favorable terms, to make immersive cinema sound ownership a reality.” 
 
Financing options to suit every need
The Auro Financing Program offers exhibitors competitive lease rates, with no up-front costs, advance payments or commitment fees. CSI Leasing can structure a program that will meet customers’ financial objectives and budget requirements, promising a quick and easy credit process for several lease packages:
  • Auro 11.1 Only – Finance an Auro 11.1 system that includes the Auro decoder and 24-channel Audio processor.
  • Third-Party Equipment and Installation Package – Finance the acquisition of speakers, amplifiers and installation.
  • Auro Turnkey – Finance a turnkey solution, including Auro 11.1 equipment, third-party equipment and installation.
The Auro 11.1 system includes everything an exhibitor needs to create an immersive cinema sound solution except additional necessary speakers and amplifiers, which are the sole responsibility of the exhibitor to install prior to the Auro 11.1 deployment.
