Sharp/NEC Display Solutions Europe will be supporting the jubilee edition of the San Sebastián International Film Festival September 16-24. As in previous years, Sharp/NEC will be collaborating with systems integrator Kelonik to install NEC laser projectors.
In its 70 years of existence, the SSIFF has achieved global renown and today is recognized by the International Federation of Film Producers’ Associations as a ‘top category competitive film festival’. A popular section of this year’s major releases as well as two of the festival’s busiest events – the film music concert given by the Basque National Orchestra and the broadcast of the closing gala – will be taking place in the Velodrome theatre.
“The Velodrome is one of our most important sections and will be a highlight attraction of the festival’s 70th edition”, said José Luis Rebordinos, director of the SSIFF.
The 400 square meter screen will be powered by NEC NC3541L RB laser projectors, one of the first RB laser projectors for premium and large format screens of up to 32 meters. The 3,000 spectators at the Velodrome venue will be captivated by the full 4K resolution and wide color space combined with a homogeneous and contrast-rich laser image quality.
“We are proud to be able to support the San Sebastián International Film Festival as one of the finest events in the cinema industry once again,” said Alain Chamaillard, head of cinema EMEA and CIS at Sharp/NEC Display Solutions Europe. “Our NEC laser projectors are the ideal solution to mesmerize spectators with an amazing image quality.”
