Barco’s 0.69” DLP Cinema® Projector for Smaller Screens First to Achieve DCI Compliance

Barco, a global digital cinema technology leader, is pleased to announce that its DP2K-10S digital cinema projector has passed the Compliance Test Plan (CTP) for the DCI Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS).

Designed from the ground up around Texas Instruments’ S2K chipset, the brand-new DP2K-10S projector is ideally suited for smaller theaters with screens up to 10 meters (33 feet) wide. The brightest projector in its category, the DP2K-10S is the first digital cinema projector featuring Texas Instruments’ new 0.69” DLP Cinema® chip to achieve DCI compliance.

“I wish to congratulate the team on their tremendous achievement of being the first to pass the Compliance Test Plan with a projector designed around the new 0.69” DLP Cinema® chip,” says Wim Buyens, Senior Vice President of Barco's Entertainment Division. “We are very pleased that the latest addition to our digital cinema projector family has now also achieved DCI compliance. As a global digital cinema technology leader, we are proud to offer the most complete range of DCI-compliant digital cinema projectors in the industry. From the compact DP2K-10S to our top-of-the-line DP4K-32B, we offer a perfect match for every cinema screen.”

Specifically designed for smaller screens
“We have newly designed our DP2K-10S projector from the ground up, to ensure maximum performance out of Texas Instruments’ 0.69” DLP Cinema® chip and made no compromises in bringing the same superior image quality as offered by the other Barco digital cinema projectors to theaters with smaller screens,” comments Theodore Marescaux, Product Manager at Barco. “Thanks to the DP2K-10S digital cinema projector, smaller exhibitors can also enchant moviegoers with first-class movie experiences – with consistent picture brightness, vibrant and stable colors. As the DP2K-10S has been designed with the specific needs of smaller exhibitors in mind - featuring our latest intuitive projector user interface that further simplifies operation and ensures low operating costs – it guarantees worry-free DCI compliance when going digital.” 

Ultimate image quality and brightness
Thanks to its superior optical efficiency, DMD cooling system and patented sealed engine, the DP2K-10S projector achieves exceptional brightness levels. It generates crisp images with vibrant colors that are stable over time due to its standard Xenon lamp and the acclaimed manual color convergence mechanism of Barco’s larger digital cinema projectors. And as it’s equipped with motorized lenses, a perfect image ratio is guaranteed in every setup. The projector’s operating cost is minimized through the use of energy-efficient Xenon lamps, a standby eco-mode, reusable air filters and the commonality of components with the other Barco digital cinema projectors. The DP2K-10S comes with integrated handles, user-friendly software tools and a smart modular architecture for easy transport, installation and service. These features make it ideally suited for outdoor and mobile cinemas alike. 

DCI compliance
Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) is the originator and administrator of the Compliance Test Plan (CTP), which was created to provide a uniform testing procedure for demonstrating compliance with the DCSS. The DCSS is intended to promote the widespread deployment of high-quality digital cinema equipment that is interoperable and provides rigorous content security. Manufacturers may demonstrate compliance by developing equipment in accordance with the DCSS and its referenced SMPTE, ISO and FIPS standards, and then submitting the equipment for testing to a third-party entity licensed by DCI to administer the CTP. 

Award-winning projector, also available with Integrated Media Server
In August, the DP2K-10S won the ‘Best Product Award’ at the 2012 Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition (BIRTV). The new projector is also available as the DP2K-10Sx, which includes an Integrated Media Server with integrated redundant storage. 

Barco at ShowEast 
Barco will be showcasing the brand-new DP2K-10S and DP2K-10Sx digital cinema projectors at ShowEast in Hollywood, Florida, from 5 to 8 November 2012. You will find our latest cinema technology at various Barco partner booths.
