Doremi has announced the exclusive sale of 350 digital cinema servers to China’s Wanda Cinema Line — the world’s largest cinema operator. Wanda Cinema Line has 100 premium cinemas with plans to have more than 1,000 screens across China by the end of 2012. It will add another 35 cinemas with 350 screens in China by the end of 2013.
The acquisition of Doremi’s Integrated Media Block (IMB) with ShowVault digital cinema serveers will supplement its continued rapid expansion across Asia.
“Our rapid expansion and recent acquisition calls for reliable products and flexible features. Both have been proven by Doremi during our initial deployment of its servers and IMBs in 2011,’ stated Ye Ning, GM of Wanda Cinema Line. “Doremi offers complete solutions and a future-proof product line, which is essential for our progression.’
“China’s cinema industry is rapidly growing and we are thrilled to supply Doremi’s unparalleled server technology and products to Wanda Cinema Line,’ said Michael Archer, VP of Doremi Cinema. “Wanda, which is committed to the latest technology and patron satisfaction, represents the next generation of exhibition in Asia, and across the world. We are happy to assist its growth with our technology.’
In May 2012, Wanda Group acquired the US-based AMC Theatres. Following the merger it is now the world’s largest cinema operator. Wanda Cinema Line, a subsidiary of Wanda Group, is the No.1 cinema chain in China.
