Sacramento, CA, June 30, 2020 – Cinionic, the Barco, CGS, and ALPD cinema joint venture, expands its relationship with Showbiz Cinemas, to power its Superior Digital Experience (SDX) auditoriums with laser technology. The collaboration further solidifies both companies’ commitment to elevating the movie-going experience, delivering brighter, laser-powered cinema for audiences to enjoy.
Cinionic will transform all SDX auditoriums with Cinionic RGB+ Laser Light Upgrade Kits for their Barco Series 2 Projectors. Laser is core to the exhibitor’s upcoming remodels and renovations including ShowBiz’s Waxahachie, Texas and Edmond, Oklahoma locations.
ShowBiz Cinemas is beloved by audiences for its combined cinema and bowling entertainment centers. Today, SDX offers moviegoers an edge-to-edge curved 70ft+ screens, luxury seating, and state of the art sound. With Cinionic’s RGB+ Laser Light Upgrade, ShowBiz Cinemas’ audiences will enjoy the latest laser projection technology for years to come.
“Cinionic is a strong and valuable partner for us, and we’re pleased to take this leap forward with them,” said Kevin Mitchell, ShowBiz Cinemas CEO. “We maintain incredibly high standards across all of our SDX auditoriums and are constantly evaluating new technologies to ensure that we are always offering the best possible experience for our patrons. With the consistently stunning visual experience provided by Cinionic’s Laser Upgrade solutions, we’re going to elevate the ultimate cinematic viewing experience our customers associate with ShowBiz Cinemas and SDX to new heights.”
ShowBiz Cinemas takes full advantage of the latest laser solutions from Cinionic, while at the same time prolonging the Series 2 projector lifespan, reducing the maintenance and service needed, and finally no more lamps. In addition to a visually stunning presentation, laser delivers the most eco-friendly cinema projection solution for a greener way to go to the movies.
“Our long-standing relationship with ShowBiz Cinemas builds upon Cinionic’s passion for elevated entertainment experiences, leveraging flexible laser solutions for every screen,” added Wim Buyens, CEO of Cinionic. “As audiences return to theaters, Cinionic is ready with new solutions and models to help exhibitors every step of the way today, and tomorrow.”
