The digital world of Sony offers a new program that will enhance digital cinema conversion for exhibitors of all sizes. Sony Electronics’ Digital Cinema Solutions group is expanding its list of purchasing and financing options with the latest lower up-front cost Virtual Print Fee (VPF) Program. This new program will provide several flexible purchasing options for exhibitors across the world for an easier and affordable digital conversion.
Sony Digital Cinema Solutions is renowned for providing a full range of Sony technologies, training and services to provide a wide range of solutions for exhibitors. For this program, Sony has deployed its 4K projection systems for the exhibitors of all sizes under studio VPF agreements. Payment agreements are taking place in all six major U.S. studios and in more than 100 independent studios across the world.
Sony will also offer exhibitor-managed financing, direct purchase and lease options in order to help the exhibitors with the purchase of sophisticated Sony products. However, the options and benefits will vary according to the region. The motion picture studios will also subsidize its projectors and will offer a range of services. “Exhibitors installing Sony 4K through the exhibitor-managed program also get certainty of ownership costs combined with the ability to potentially take advantage of IRS bonus depreciation programs,” said Tim Smith, vice-president, Business Development, Digital Cinema Solutions, Sony Electronics.
