Ballantyne to Provide 24 NEC Digital Projectors Equipped with REAL D 3-D Technology to Regal

"Ballantyne of Omaha, a motion picture projection, digital cinema and specialty lighting equipment and services provider, announced today that its Strong Digital Systems (SDS) division will provide 24 NEC STARUS NC2500S Digital Cinema projectors with REAL D 3-D technology to Regal Entertainment Group. The 24 projectors will be shipped in time for the October 19th release of Walt Disney Pictures' animated feature film The Nightmare Before Christmas in Disney Digital 3-D. Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

Digital Link II, LLC, a separate entity formed and co-financed by REAL D and Ballantyne, will fund the projector purchases. Digital Link is in discussions regarding securing per-film virtual print fees from feature film distributors - for both 3-D and non-3-D features - in order to reduce Digital Link's and the licensee's ultimate capital investment."
