Kortrijk, Belgium, 5 May 2015 – Digital cinema pioneer Barco announces that Nordisk Film Biografer, the leading developer, producer, distributor and exhibitor of films in the Nordic region, has chosen the Barco DP4K-60L laser projector to power the main premium large format (PLF) screen of its multiplex in the prestigious Field’s shopping and entertainment center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
With over 115,000m² of shops, the Field’s shopping center is the biggest in Denmark and one of the largest in the whole of Scandinavia. Located in the Ørestad district of Copenhagen, Field’s will also be the home of Nordisk Film Biografer’s new flagship multiplex cinema, set for a grand opening in August of this year.
Laser projection rises to the challenge
The nearly 1,500-seat cinema complex will offer Danish shoppers and movie aficionados a truly immersive cinematic experience. Together with system integrator dcinex, Nordisk Film Biografer has spared no pains in equipping each of the screens with the latest in digital cinema and audio technology. Its goal? To create the perfect moviegoing environment.
Featuring exceptional light levels, the theater’s main PLF screen placed steep demands on projection performance. That’s why dcinex proposed Barco’s new, single-projector DP4K-60L laser projection system.
“The Barco DP4K-60L is the world’s brightest cinema projector, featuring unprecedented 4K image quality and contrast ratios that result in laser-sharp 2D and 3D images,” says Wim Buyens, Head of Entertainment at Barco. “What’s more, the built-in Barco Alchemy Intelligent Cinema Media Processor combines media server, cinema processing, storage and security functions in a single, on-board module. The module is the first on the market to enable the projection of 4K content at 60 fps and show 3D movies in full 4K resolution with only one projector.”
Film fans at heart
In the coming weeks, dcinex technicians, supported by Barco, will set up camp at Field’s to take care of the installation. Assuming everything goes according to plan, Nordisk Film Biografer plans to open the doors to its new multiplex cinema in August. Lars Jørgensen, Executive Country Manager at Nordisk Film Biografer, is eagerly looking forward to this: “This partnership is founded on a shared love for cinema. With the help of dcinex and Barco, we are creating a unique, state-of-the-art theater. By building on innovative technology such as Barco’s laser-illuminated projection, we are bound to raise the bar in cinematic experience throughout the region.”
