Barco's DLP cinema projectors are the only choice when you want to give moviegoers the highest quality cinema experience.

Furthermore, Barco helped minimize the cost of our digitization by perfectly matching our screen sizes with its range of projectors. We are very satisfied with Barco.”
Mr. Masao Sasano, Sales Manager Digital Cinema for Barco Japan, said: “We are very pleased that Shizukatsu Co., Ltd. has recognized Barco quality from the beginning and that they have now added the 4K Enhanced Barco DLP cinema projector to their 2K projectors.
