Our Experience

A Little History...

Our engineers have been working with cinema since the pre-digital era, running and servicing 35mm and 70mm cinemas.  

When digital cinema was introduced, we began gaining experience with all DLP projectors and playback server technologies, starting with 1.3K DLP cinema with its many different servers.

As 2K digital cinema arrived, we were at the cutting-edge and were behind several digital cinema firsts, including:

  • The first demo of 2K projection in central London (at what was then The Other Cinema)
  • The first 2K projection to the public (at Birmingham Screen Festival)
  • The first JPEG2000 DCI specification content and screening support for the first digital 3D screenings in London's West End
  • Rolling out the world's first national digital cinema network - the UK Film Council's Digital Screen Network (DSN)

Since then we have deployed cinema chains all over the world and have trained projectionists, managers and even several UK cinema engineers on digital cinema technology.

We continue to offer all levels of support to cinemas across the UK, bringing the highest possible levels of quality and expertise at affordable prices.
