Cinemas are increasingly being inaugurated with all-laser projection that harnesses premium RGB laser projection on flagship screens plus the more economically viable laser phosphor projectors. In 2017, exhibitors continued to invest in RGB with over 315 new RGB screens installed for a total of 699 RGB screens worldwide in 2017, an increase of over 80% from the 384 one year prior and growing more than seven fold from 89 RGB screens active in 2015.
