KORTRIJK, Belgium (April 24, 2023) – Cinionic, the leader in laser cinema, has crossed a new milestone in laser cinema with commitments for over 3,000 Laser Light Upgrade solutions from theaters around the world. Cinionic’s ground-breaking Laser Light Upgrades offer cinemas a fast and sustainable way to join the laser cinema revolution. As Cinionic continues to lead the global transition to laser, the proven Laser Light Upgrade solution furthers the company’s commitment to a laser for every screen. Today, over 35,000 screens around the world are powered by Laser Projection by Cinionic, with over 50 exhibitors in more than 25 countries choosing Laser Light Upgrades to achieve their renewal ambitions.
The innovative Laser Light Upgrade solution enables theaters to revitalize legacy Barco Series 2 xenon projectors with a new laser light source.

Cinionic’s Laser Light Upgrade is the fastest way to laser. The cost-effective solution enables cinemas to meet and exceed the expectations of modern audiences, while balancing financial considerations. Installed in as little as four hours, the on-site retrofit requires minimal downtime for screens.
“Cinema is in the midst of a technology renewal” says Wim Buyens, CEO, Cinionic. “Audiences have high expectations and theaters are seeking solutions that not only wow but also make sense from a business and sustainability standpoint. With Laser Light Upgrades, we’re enabling more exhibitors than ever before to move to the leading standard in cinema – Laser Projection by Cinionic.”
