Barco 'Series 2' Digital Cinema Projector First to Pass DCI Compliance Testing Milestone

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema announced today that its 'Series 2' digital cinema projector has successfully passed the procedural test for DCI compliance administered by CineCert, the leading 3rd party authorizing test facility. With these tests completed, Barco has reached another important milestone in the rollout of its brand-new DP2K projector series.

The DCI standard was created by the Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) to ensure a consistent and extremely high image quality for the cinema audience. Additional benefits include content security and optical performance, including color, uniformity, and contrast. By establishing a common set of requirements, DCI standards guarantee worry-free compatibility and interoperability for distributors, studios, exhibitors, manufacturers and vendors.

“We are thrilled to be the industry's first digital projector manufacturer that has successfully passed the stringent assessment procedures carried out by the DCI approved testing agency, CineCert,” commented Wim Buyens, Vice-President of Barco's Digital Cinema division. “It is a reward for the rigorous quality and security standards applied in our labs during the development of this new DP2K projector series. For our customers, this will result in the most secure, high-quality and low-risk projector solution available today.”

“We are very pleased to confirm the DP2K-20C is the first digital cinema projector to complete procedural testing in our lab,” commented John Hurst CTO of CineCert, LLC. “It shows that DCI compliance testing is not only possible but also quite practical.”

Barco's six new Series 2 projectors support 2D and 3D projection, and represent, by far, the most complete family available today. For small and mid-size movie theaters, Barco offers a dedicated family of compact DP2K 'C' projectors, based on the 0.98” DLP Cinema® chip from Texas Instruments (TI). For larger venues, Barco's offering includes a complete family of DP2K B-series projectors, based on TI's 1.2” DLP Cinema® chip. Barco's flagship ultra bright projector for the large chip family is the DP2K-32B, which earns the title 'brightest digital cinema projector on the planet'. At Barco, it's all about providing the right projector for the right screen to fit the needs of our customers so that we provide the best possible experience to the cinema audience.
