Singapore, 4 October 2017 – Singapore’s Golden Village Multiplex (GV), is upping the ante in the entertainment scene in the east of the city, with the opening of Singapore’s first all-new laser projection multiplex at the new Singpost Centre retail mall, located at the heart of Paya Lebar.
Laser projection will make its debut on the screens in all eight auditoriums at the 756-seat GV Paya Lebar, which officially opens to the public on Friday 6th October. With a brightness of 20,000 lumens, the Barco Smart Laser Projection delivers unprecedented picture quality, far outperforming traditional digital projections. The new system creates higher contrast, clearer, crisper imagery and higher colour saturation, providing viewers with a far superior visual effect.
Eddie Tan, General Manager SEA, at Entertainment & Corporate, Barco, the company behind the laser projection technology, added, “We are delighted to work with Golden Village to install the Barco Smart Laser Projection series at Golden Village Paya Lebar. Laser projection is the future of large display technology and we are excited to witness a major step-up in technical performance in the big screens here in Singapore. We’re confident that this new collaboration will be a big hit with movie-goers here in Singapore.”
This is not the first time that GV collaborates with Barco. In fact, GV has recognized the rise of digital projectors in the cinema business and has done the switch to Barco’s digital projectors in all their cinemas in Singapore back in 2012. Read the full press release here
