E Cinema projectors - for alternative content, advertising etc
In 2019, we switched our entire rental and event fleet to 2P laser phosphor gear.
What is laser phosphor?
Laser phosphor technology is advancing rapidly because of the abundance of benefits it offers against traditional lamp based projectors. The laser light source is a solid state lamp-less illumination technology that produces consistent high brightness up to 30,000 hours virtually maintenance free. Thanks to DLP™ technology, image quality and colour performance are second to none.
The benefits of laser phosphor projectors are dependable long life, 24/7 operation capability, consistent high brightness, flexible installation, minimal maintenance and low total cost of ownership.
Optoma’s DuraCore laser combines industry-leading lifetime of the laser light source with a unique dust resistant design independently IP5X or IP6X certified.

For live event, mixed use venues and part time operations we differ from the industry norm and do our best to provide a multi use sound and control system to cater BEST for all needs. For instance, a 500 seat theatre needs a fair amount of power and sub bass, and yet the norm when installing a cinema kit in a venue like this is to install a lower powered system to suit a 200 seat and accept the compromise. We dont do this ! We work hard to locate the speaker stacks and control software to suit all needs, usually via a defined cinema preset. Usually we will dedicate centre speakers to cinema and install fixed surround channels which can also be patched for live use. Shown here one of our favorites - the Herts theatre. We were initially called in to install D cinema however quickly advised that best value could be achieved by not installing a totally new sound system but by applying the funds to a mixed function upgrade on their ageing house rig - a large truck of Martin Audio gear later and the place runs everything from solo acoustics to Rolling Stones cover bands. Movies particularly kick with more ub bass power than the 10 screens in their local multiplex put together !
Event Cinema has grown dramatically in the past 10 years and for a numbr of independant venues has become a major revenue stream. Typically both taking and charging more than a standard feature film, life, DCP and "encore" screenings attract an audience often neglected by mainstream Hollywood
We work with the best - Lansat, VuPlus and all the content operators - in order to deliver the best event options for large and small screens. Exclusively we are the ONLY integrator to deal with all technologies, from the dish to the projector, and we can provide support at all stages.
Live events and satelitte installation
Event cinema is often more profitable than commercial screenings given the time sensitive nature of live and “as live” shows. Install and service are vital and thoughts like duplicating the satellite dish or having a contingency in case it snows over Portugal (trust me, it happens) of the local cell phone mast gives interference only after 9pm ( happens too) is vital.
