Barco Achieves DCI Compliance for New Barco Alchemy Digital Cinema Projectors

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema technology, is proud to announce that its Barco Integrated Cinema Media Processor has achieved full DCI compliance. This module, which combines the functionalities of an integrated cinema processor and media server into a single board, is at the heart of the brand-new Barco Alchemy digital cinema projector range. It is also fully compatible with all Barco Series 2 digital cinema projectors already in the field.

“The Barco Alchemy module is unique in the digital cinema world in that it blends the cinema processing electronics with the DCI media decoding part of a media server,” said Theodore Marescaux, Product Manager at Barco. “Achieving DCI compliance for this new module is a key milestone in the project. In fact, we are the first to achieve the DCI proposed frame rates for 4K 2D at 48 and 60 frames per second (fps). By exceeding the recommended bit rates and with 4K 60fps projectors at 625 Mbps, we are primed to enchant moviegoers with an even more breathtaking immersive experience than ever before.” 

Highly optimized IP cores 
The new Barco Alchemy module integrates highly optimized JPEG2000 decoding and crypto engines from Barco Silex, a Barco subsidiary and a leader in video processing, encryption and security IP cores and platforms. “Our design excellence and broad IP portfolio were a perfect match for this exciting project,” said Thierry Watteyne, CEO Barco Silex SA. “Our JPEG2000 decoder and cryptographic AES and HMAC cores are key elements in the design – and our team has strained every nerve to integrate and optimize the cores to meet the demanding specifications of the Barco Alchemy module.” 

Compliant with all requirements 
“Rigorous compliance with DCI specifications and NIST standards is critical for the digital cinema industry to continue captivating moviegoers,” said Travis Spann, President and Laboratory Director of Aegisolve, Inc., the NIST-accredited and DCI-licensed laboratory that conducted the compliance tests. “We gladly report that both DCI CTP and FIPS 140-2 reviews and testing of the Barco Integrated Cinema Media Processor are complete and compliant with all applicable requirements.” Marescaux added: “The combined expertise of a FIPS lab and DCI CTP testing is a cast-iron guarantee that the Barco Alchemy module meets the most stringent DCI requirements. This is a milestone for the module and for our entire digital cinema offering.” 

At the heart of the new Barco Alchemy range 
At the heart of the Barco Alchemy range, this new module is a groundbreaking update of Barco’s acclaimed digital cinema projector families. The Barco Alchemy projectors combine media server functionalities with cinema processing electronics to bring more simplicity and reliability to the projection booth. The streamlined and intuitive user interface adds further value to the new range.
