Barco Launches Full Portfolio of Laser-Illuminated Cinema Projectors

Barco, global market share leader in digital cinema xenon projection, proudly introduces a full fleet of laser-illuminated projectors dedicated to the cinema industry. Consisting of four models – DP4K-60L, DP4K-45L, DP4K-30L, and DP4K-22L – that generate stunning brightness levels up to 56,000 lumens, the Barco laser projector range brings superior image quality to every theater.

The projectors deliver exceptional image quality, with outstanding 3D brightness and superior color performance, while simplifying operations and reducing operating expenses. This family of laser projectors is immediately available for order. The DP4K-45L and DP4K-60L are already shipping, while the DP4K-22L and DP4K-30L will be shipping in Q4 2015.

“As the market share leader in digital cinema projection, integrating laser illumination in our projection technology was the next logical step for us. We’re proud to be the first manufacturer to ship the only entirely integrated 6P solution for cinemas around the world,” comments Wim Buyens, Vice President Entertainment at Barco. “The brightest projectors in the industry, our revolutionary fleet of laser-illuminated projectors are setting a new standard for image quality – enabling exhibitors to inspire audiences with unsurpassed image quality that’s better than anything they can experience at home.”

A perfect match for every screen
“After years of development, we’re excited that laser projection is finally here,” says Stijn Henderickx, Vice President Digital Cinema at Barco. “As we’re fully committed to bringing the best picture quality to every movie theater, we’ve made this cutting-edge technology available now. Our award-winning laser projectors bring high brightness levels to every type of cinema screen, from small to premium large formats. We truly believe laser projection is the future. That’s why we have a powerful laser innovation roadmap for the coming years which also includes both new and retrofit laser phosphor solutions. In this way the Barco laser technology is fully future-proof.”

Unprecedented image quality
Barco’s laser projectors offer superior image quality with remarkable brightness levels, increased contrast ratio, and vivid colors for a radically improved movie experience that’s unmatched in the industry. The 2D and 3D images they display – with single lens operation – are laser-sharp with superbly saturated and uniform colors. These brightness levels create an unparalleled 3D experience – showing movies just the way they were intended by the moviemaker. Powered by the unique Series 3 Barco Alchemy Integrated Cinema Media Processor (ICMP), Barco laser projectors are the first in the world capable of showing full 4K content at 60 frames per second and 3D movies in 4K at extraordinary brightness levels. And thanks to Barco’s industry-leading technology to minimize laser speckle, the Barco laser projectors provide superior 2D and 3D images on both white and silver screens.

Many-sided simplicity
Barco’s integrated laser projection technology improves the movie experience while reducing complexity for exhibitors. Based on laser light sources instead of lamps, Barco laser projectors free you from all lamp-related hassles, costs and maintenance. The Barco laser solution for cinema features a single projector architecture that can be seamlessly integrated into your current system. No alignment is required among multiple projectors, and installation, operation, and maintenance have also become easier. And as there’s only one projector to service and maintain, downtime, spare parts, and service are also reduced.

Total Cost of Ownership champion
One major saving provided by the projectors is that all lamp-related costs are eliminated, as there are no lamps involved. Thanks to their extremely high optical efficiency; brightness and light levels have been driven up, while operational costs have been driven down. When compared to xenon projectors generating the same brightness level, the Barco laser-illuminated projectors consume 40% less power. The reliable laser light source offers an extremely long lifetime of 30,000 hours or more while keeping 80% of its initial brightness level. 

Shared design philosophy
The Barco laser projectors share their design philosophy with the other Barco digital cinema projectors. All around the globe, theater owners have praised the modularity of the Barco digital cinema projectors, and the Barco laser projectors continue this distinct advantage. This clever design ensures fast and simple maintenance and maximum uptime. Another hallmark of Barco’s lamp- and laser-based digital cinema projectors is their sealed optical engines. Thanks to this patented sealed enclosure, contamination cannot reach the optics or DLP Cinema chips, thus ensuring undiminished brightness and contrast levels. 

CinemaBarco – bringing the magic back to the movies
The Barco laser projectors form the fundamental component of the CinemaBarco experience in auditoriums. CinemaBarco is a complete cinema experience featuring unmatched sight and sound technology designed to re-ignite the magic of the movies. Barco offers unprecedented solutions and economics to the cinema industry, focused on delivering compelling experiences for cinema audiences that also generate additional revenue for our exhibition partners.
