Sony Digital Cinema 4K has confirmed the sale of Europe’s first SRX-R815DS 4K laser dual projection system to German cinema operators.
Two of the high-brightness systems have been purchased by Cinecitta’ Nuremberg, one of Europe’s largest and most technically advanced multiplexes.
A further SRX-R815DS system has been purchased by CineSpace for its luxurious Waterfront complex in Bremen. Breathtaking images on the 25m, screen 3 – the largest in northern Germany – are matched by an immersive listening experience in DOLBY ATMOS.
Installed by leading cinema exhibition services supplier in Europe, CinemaNext, all systems were installed and operational in time for the hotly-awaited European opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on December 14, which will be made available to cinemas as a native 4K digital cinema package (DCP).
Both exhibitor customers are also taking advantage of FINITY from Sony Digital Cinema. This complete solution for Premium Large Format (PLF) screen owners combines Sony’s HDR-ready 4K dual projection systems with an exclusive package of FINITY branded screen splashes, posters and marketing materials.
“Laser projection in Sony 4K is literally out of this world… from the flash of every light sabre to the inky blackness of deep space.” says Karl-Joachim Lohkamp, Managing Director of CinemaNext Deutschland.
“We’re delighted that two of Germany’s most successful and commercially ambitious operators are redefining big-screen entertainment with the hotly-awaited SRX-R815DS. And what better way to introduce audiences to this awesome projection solution than the latest spectacular instalment of the Star Wars saga.” Comments Oliver Pasch, Sales Director, Sony Digital Cinema 4K.
