Lima, Peru, July 12, 2016 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the cinema, commercial, pro AV, and home theater markets, and Bardan Cinema are proud to announce that Severtson has provided 13 cinema screens, including a Severtson SēVision 3D GX giant silver perforated screen measuring in at 33.8 ft. x 63.3 ft. (10.3m x 19.3m) for Cineplanet’s new Mall del Sur multiplex located in Lima, Peru. The new Mall del Sur is the largest mall in Peru. The multiplex’s grand opening was June 22, 2016.
“The popularity of our cinema and giant 3D screens is continuing to grow within the international market,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “Lima’s Mall del Sur multiplex is now one in a long line of our giant screen projects throughout South America.”
Added Dan Maxwell, Severtson Corp. V.P. & Chief Operating Officer, “The additional 13 screens (three silver and 10 white), including the giant SēVision 3D GX giant silver perforated screen and other technological advances that outfitted the rest of the multiplex make it a world-class venue. Cinema owners and integrators are increasingly becoming aware of the advantages of Severtson’s giant screens, including our new folded technologies, which allow for even more cost effective shipping options worldwide.”
Cineplanet is the first cinema operator in Peru to install Barco’s new premium Flagship laser cinema projectors, offering patrons an unprecedented premium cinema experience while reaping the rewards of greater operational efficiency. Bardan Cinema, one of the largest cinema integrators in the Americas, was involved with the project’s visioning, design and installation of the audio, projection, seating, screens, lighting and concession equipment.
“We are pleased to work with and provide the Severston Screens line to our customers,” said Vilma Benitez, CEO of Bardan Cinema. “There is no question that Cineplanet’s Mall del Sur multiplex will provide the very best movie-going experience to their sophisticated patrons.”
Severtson’s SēVision 3D GX and Ultra Wide cinema screens have numerous advantages, including:
- available in standard or micro perforation (white and silver)
- coated surface that is harder to bruise and scuff
- small micron flake coating produces a sharper image, eliminating graininess in bright scenes
- viewing angles range from 30 to 40 degree half-gain depending on the specific screen gain requested
- water-based coating promotes longevity by maintaining optical properties over time, eliminating flaking and cracking of the screen surface
- perfect for all large cinema applications, such as movie houses, museums, universities, etc.
