(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Radio City filed a lawsuit on May 3 in federal court against BARCO Media for breach of contract, relating to the purchase of a multi-million dollar LED screen designed to enhance the experience for people attending events at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
"In an effort to provide our patrons with a state-of-the-art, first-class entertainment experience, last year we purchased the largest in-door, high-definition LED screen in the country," said MSG Entertainment President Jay Marciano. "Our experience with BARCO has been an unmitigated disaster. The screen has not functioned properly and, despite five months of attempts to rectify its considerable problems, BARCO was unable or unwilling to resolve the issues. Incredibly, BARCO Media refuses to recognize its obligations and provide restitution to Radio City for all costs relating to the defective screen."
Specifically, Radio City is asking the court to force BARCO Media to provide the company with a full refund of the more than $4 million that it has already paid to purchase the screen plus $1.8 million in additional costs incurred by Radio City relating to the screen's installation. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
