NEC Display Solutions Adds Multi-million ODEON Contract

NEC Display Solutions has announced that its digital projectors are to be rolled out by ODEON – Europe’s largest cinema group – for a string of forthcoming 3D Hollywood blockbusters. The ODEON Group currently has 200 cinemas and over 1,800 screens across the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal. It is the largest cinema chain in the world outside of North America.

Following extensive two year trials at ODEON Hatfield (Hertfordshire), where NEC projectors were bench-marked for reliability and quality, NEC’s digital NC1600s are to be rolled out to its cinemas. The projectors will enable the cinema giant to screen 3D movies - such as Disney’s Bolt and the forthcoming Monsters Vs Aliens – for a spectacular experience that puts the audience right at the heart of the action.

A founding partner and official technology solution provider to the O2, NEC’s digital cinema projectors deliver outstanding brightness, sharper graphics and stunning colour. NEC’s NC1600C is an integrated DLP cinema projector which houses both the lamp power supply and projector head in the same unit. It has been specifically developed for medium-sized screens, delivering high quality output and offering ease of operation. Boasting 17,000 Lumens and precise 2K (2048x1080) resolution, the NC1600C offers one-touch operation and memory functions for lens position and lamp output.
