3D systems company MasterImage 3D has struck a deal with Malta-based Eden Cinemas to install MasterImage equipment at three Eden cinemas.

Eden will use the MasterImage MI-2100 system, in a pact signed at Cinema Expo in June.

“We wanted to make sure we had the best 3D system in place and selecting the right partner was an important strategic decision. MasterImage 3D provided us with both the quality of its technology and the right business case - so we were able to own the systems outright - which made their products the best choice,” said Simon De Cesare, general manager, Eden Leisure Group. “We’re excited to be able to introduce this new technology to our customers and embark on a long term relationship with MasterImage 3D.”

“We’re delighted that Eden Leisure Group has demonstrated such confidence in MasterImage 3D and our digital 3D system,” added Brian Kercher, managing director of 3D Cinema, MasterImage 3D Europe. “The MasterImage solution has been embraced by cinema operations in over 40 countries and we’re proud to partner with Eden Leisure Group to bring a great 3D experience to moviegoers in Malta.”

MasterImage has offices in California, the UK and South Korea.
