RealD signs French cinema technology deal
RealD has announced an exclusive partnership with Cap Cinema, overseeing the installation of RealD 3D technology across 50 screens in 10 Cap Cinema sites, many of which will also be fitted with RealD’s new precision white screen (PWS) technology.

Bob Mayson, MD of RealD Europe, said: "This agreement with Cap Cinema demonstrates our commitment to focus on the French market, signaling an improvement in French cinema quality through our new precision white screens."

Cap Cinema will continue full installation of PWS from March 2015, with the hardware also being installed at their new site, Cagnes sur Mer.

In addition, the introduction of RealD’s “LUXE: A RealD Experience” (LUXE), a new Premium Large Format (PLF) initiative, is also being explored by Cap Cinema.

The world’s most widely used 3D cinema brand, RealD 3D is currently installed in approximately 26,000 auditoriums by approximately 1,000 exhibitors in 73 countries around the world (as of September 30, 2014).
