Newly-Formed Cinionic Launches High Contrast Laser Projectors for Smaller Screens



Kortrijk, Belgium, April 19, 2018 – Leveraging Barco’s long history of market leadership in cinema laser technology and it success with RGB Flagship Laser projection for Premium Large Format screens, Cinionic, the Barco Cinema joint venture, now turns its attention to smaller screens. Today, Cinionic announces a new Smart Laser High Contrast (HC) projector series designed to deliver stunning image quality never-before-seen in this footprint.

“In our research, it became clear that exhibitors wanted to offer patrons rich, immersive movie showings in every theater – not just their largest or PLF auditoriums – but cost and efficiency were limiting factors,” said Wim Buyens, CEO of Cinionic. “We developed our Smart Laser High Contrast projectors to present brilliant imagery that captivates audiences with a one-of-a-kind premium experience.”

High-quality images and cost efficiency rolled into one
Based on the Barco Smart Laser projector platform, the HC models are highly efficient and cost effective, overcoming the typical challenges of creating high-contrast movie images for smaller screens. Offering an excellent value proposition for movie exhibitors, the new projectors feature consistent laser image quality, native 4K resolution, enhanced ANSI and native contrast, proven DLP technology, and a long lifetime. All of these reasons combined make them the ideal solution to power an all-laser multiplex. With this extension of the High Contrast range, Cinionic underlines its commitment to deliver the right projector for every screen to ensure the best movie experiences in every auditorium.
