Cinema Star Chooses MasterImage 3D for Rollout of new 3D Screens in Russia


Selects HORIZON3D, High‐Brightness Cinema System to Provide Premium 3D Experiences

MOSCOW, RUSSIA – (June 24, 2015) – MasterImage 3D, innovator of cinematic solutions, announced today a partnership with Tashir Group’s Cinema Star theater chain to provide 3D cinema systems in support of their efforts to bring premium movie-going experiences across Russia. Tashir Group is a prominent conglomerate run by Samvel Karapetyan with investments in commercial real estate, hotels, infrastructure, cable networks and other businesses. Starting in March 2015, the Tashir Group began ambitious plans to expand the high-end multiplex industry in Russia by opening over 125 new screens through the next 10 years with 3D a large component of that experience.

Cinema Star selected MasterImage 3D for the presentation quality of the HORIZON3D premium digital cinema system, recognized for bright 3D without sacrificing image quality. The HORIZON3D uses a three-beam optical system that eliminates discrepancies between pass-through light and reflected light to create high-brightness 3D with greater clarity and uniformity than two-­way beam systems.

“Russian moviegoers continue to choose the 3D format as a preferred cinematic experience — whether Hollywood blockbusters or local productions,” says Karina Agadzhanova, CEO at Cinema Star. “Cinema Star is committed to offering the highest quality 3D presentation, and HORIZON3D offers the perfect balance of brightness, vivid colors and crisp 3D imagery.”

“Exhibitors like Cinema Star make the Russian market so exciting,” says Adam MacDonald, Director of Digital Cinema, EMEA at MasterImage 3D. “Cinema Star is synonymous with selecting the latest digital cinema technology, and HORIZON3D is a great match for their desire to put the best 3D images on screen.”
