Barco Premieres Digital Cinema Projector for Screens up to 40 Feet
At the 2008 ShowEast convention in Orlando, digital cinema pioneer Barco expands the DP series with the premiere of the new DP-1200.
Built on the field-proven technology of the Barco DP series, the DP-1200 has been designed for screens up to 40 feet wide. Using the 0.98 inch DLP® Cinema chip from Texas Instruments, the DP-1200 builds on the strengths of the DP-1500 and DP-2000 platform. In the DP-1200, Barco paid particular attention to optimizing operating costs, by making low wattage 2kW and 1.2kW lamps available for use.
In addition, the DP-1200 incorporates all the traditional Barco benefits such as a modular design, a motorized single lens solution, optimal protection of the optics and low ventilation requirements. The communicator software and SNMP agent provide customers with an easy key to operate their digital cinema projector.
With the DP-1200 in place, Barco now offers solutions for ~90% of cinema screens through one powerful product family. Across the DP-2000, DP-1500 and DP-1200 line, Barco offers maximum spare parts commonality, high reliability, and a common user interface with an elegant “touch and feel.” These factors combine to ensure that Barco customers benefit from both reduced operating costs and reduced operational complexity.
Todd Hoddick, Vice President Digital Cinema, states: “With the addition of the DP-1200, we now have Barco solutions across all market segments. Our newly expanded digital cinema reaches new markets and strengthens the overall commitment to our customers.”
