Barco reports increased buy in from Post Production Market for 2k DLP Cinema™ projection solutions.
Barco Digital Cinema reports an increased interest by post production companies
for 2k digital projection solutions. In the last few months, several D-Cine
Premiere DP100 projectors, incorporating 2k DLP Cinema™ technology from Texas
Instruments, have been sold worldwide to high-end post production facilities. It
is not just the requirement for color-accurate, high-contrast images - the post
production sector demands software control tools to ensure that digital
projection can reproduce the full color gamut and feel of the final film print.
Barco’s D-Cine Communicator software provides this added value thanks to the
Look-up Table Management feature, enabling direct access and control over
industry standard or proprietary Color, Gamma and 3D Look-up tables. Thanks to
this feature, the post production community can be confident that the projected
images will be accurate, both during the Digital Intermediate grade and the
final 35mm print output.
