Barco Selected for Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies

As part of National Geographic’s touring exhibition Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, Barco DP-2000 projectors have been selected to present Giant Screen Films’ Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies.
Digital cinema pioneer Barco announced today that two Barco DP-2000 projectors have been selected to present Giant Screen Films’ Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies, a companion 3D movie experience shown in conjunction with National Geographic’s touring exhibition, “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs.”

Organized by National Geographic and Arts and Exhibitions International, in cooperation with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, the “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” tour opened on October 3, 2008 at the Dallas Museum of Art, the first stop on the three-city U.S. encore tour of this remarkable exhibit.  The digital cinema presentation Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies is part historic journey and part forensic adventure, telling the story of one of the greatest archeological finds in modern times.

Each 3D-equipped Barco DP-2000 projector features Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, with the ability to deliver remarkable brightness without sacrificing resolution, modularity, serviceability or overall system flexibility.  The DP-2000 is ideal for a wide range of screens up to 65 feet (20m) in width, and is also the most cost-effective 3D projector on the market today.  Alongside Barco, Dolby Laboratories is providing its Dolby(R) 3D Digital Cinema systems to further enhance the 3D experience including Dolby Digital Cinema servers.

“Projection quality was critical in our decision to use Barco,” said Andy Wood, Vice President of Business Development, Giant Screen Films.  “Egypt 3D was shot in 70mm and we wanted to retain the clarity, color, and depth of the large-format original.  Since many of the viewers will be experiencing digital 3D for the first time, it was imperative that we did not disappoint.  The Barco DP-2000 projector looks amazing and is built to survive the exhibition tour.  We’re thrilled with the selection and the viewers are blown away!” 

 “It’s an honor for Barco to have been selected by Giant Screen Films to present Egypt 3D,” said Todd Hoddick, Vice President of Digital Cinema, Barco N.A.  “As a movie that was developed specifically to accompany this remarkable exhibit, Giant Screen Films clearly chose the brightest, clearest and most contemporary way of presenting this 3D experience to those attending the museum.”
