Ushio inks deals for 3D projectors

Company looking to dominate DCP market

TOKYO — Ushio, a leading maker of lighting-related equipment, has inked a deal with Japanese exhibs Warner Mycal and Shochiku to supply digital cinema projectors (DCP) to all their theaters by 2012. The projectors will all be 3D-capable.

With this deal, Ushio expects to expand its share of the domestic DCP market from the current 15% to 60% by 2014.

All of the DCPs for Warner and Shochiku’s 801 screens nationwide will be made by Christie Digital Systems, a wholly owned Ushio subsid. The Ushio Group will also be in charge of installation and maintenance of the DCP units.

The digitalization plan for the deal was jointly developed by Ushio and GDC Technology, a Hong Kong-based cinema server sales outfit.

As of the end of last year, Ushio had shipped a total of nearly 500 DCPs nationwide and, as of the end of June, 2010, 12,000 worldwide.
