Cinionic is laser-focused on cinema and proudly offers a laser solution for every screen. Since laser's market debut in 2014, Laser Projection by Cinionic has set a new standard for cinema projection. Cinionic leads the market with more than 30,000 cinema laser solutions deployed and thousands of all laser multiplexes worldwide. The momentum with laser is thanks to Cinionic and Barco’s rich heritage in cinema and more than 100,000 projectors.


It’s no surprise that the world’s largest theater chains choose laser from Cinionic to deliver a wow experience for audiences and to reduce operational complexity. When talking about the numerous benefits of laser versus traditional lamp-based projectors, Cinionic refers to the suite of laser advantages as “360 degrees of laser benefits”, covering visual performance, moviegoer experience, operational excellence, and efficient sustainability. 


Key Benefits of Laser:


  1. Visual performance 

Did you know that 86 percent of moviegoers rank picture quality as the most important factor when deciding to see a film in a movie theater (ERM Research, 2019)? Cinionic Laser solutions are brighter, offer higher contrast and greater uniformity, eliminate lamp flicker, and can deliver a broader color spectrum. The result: audiences notice the difference. It’s the wow factor they crave, and that keeps them coming back.


  1. Moviegoer satisfaction

Laser offers proven benefits to enhance both visual performance and audience satisfaction. When audiences are presented with laser projection, they will see the difference. When they are educated about Laser Projection by Cinionic, they value the visible benefits it brings to the big screen.


  1. Operational excellence

Laser projection offers peace-of-mind for exhibitors with simpler operations thanks to the absence of lamp changes, flawless 2D-3D switching, reduced maintenance and training, and consistent DCI performance over time. 


  1. Sustainable efficiency

When a cinema chooses laser, it’s a choice to use fewer resources and to deliver an eco-friendly presentation. Laser is a less wasteful technology than lamps and offers savings on cinema construction with boothless options, lower HVAC consumption, the elimination of lamp expenditures, reduced electricity consumption, and optimized technology lifetime.
