Prophets puts the spotlight on Cinionic

Launching a new generation of laser projectors for cinemas worldwide... where do you start? Cinionic enlisted the help of Prophets. The international joint venture brings brand-new technology to cinema audiences with the Barco Series 4. A major leap forward that calls for an extensive communication campaign.

Prophets put Cinionic’s major leap forward in the spotlight with a communication platform that encompasses the various carriers in a coherent fashion: from a new logo, key visuals and baseline for the Barco Series 4 to the website, brochures, social banners, video, gadgets and event support. Philosophy: a smart step forward.

Pioneering technology

An emphatic nod to the legendary words of Neil Armstrong after the moon landing. After all, this new generation of laser projectors is just as trailblazing for the movie industry. Yep: “It’s one small step for cinema, one giant leap for the audience”, Cinionic claims.

Launch in Las Vegas

The campaign kick-off? A launch event at CinemaCon 2019 in Las Vegas. Curious spectators got to discover the Barco Series 4 up close thanks to, amongst others, live demonstrations and an virtual experience. For those who wanted to know what else the future of cinema has in store, there were numerous panel discussions and tech talks with entertainment industry experts.

Mission accomplished? CMO Carl Rijsbrack: “I think we’ll attract a great deal of attention. We’re writing history here. This technology will change the future of cinema.”
