Barco Dazzles Theaters Around the Globe with DP2K Digital Cinema Projectors

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema projection technology, announces that the first half of 2010 has brought impressive results for its digital cinema business thanks to the worldwide deployment of the DP2K series. 

This year has taken off with a significant increase in sales, orders and production capacity.Powered by the global demand for digital and 3D projection, Barco's new DP2K family of digital projectors is on its way to break all records. Launched at ShoWest in March 2010, this family of DLP Cinema Enhanced® 4K digital projectors was the first ever to pass a DCI compliance testing milestone and the first to offer integrated CineCanvas™ subtitling. Furthermore, Barco has revealed that it has obtained full DCI compliance for its complete line of DP2K 'C' series Their extreme brightness, reliability and image quality in combination with Barco's extended service offering featuring enhanced remote services, diagnostics and monitoring, have made the DP2K family the preferred projectors for leading exhibitors worldwide. 

“The DP2K series has been extremely well received,” says Wim Buyens, Vice President of Barco's digital cinema business. “The market is really taking up the proven Barco design concepts, such as our truly modular design and commonality of spares, which have been taken to the next level in the DP2K series. The many key customers selecting Barco for their digital cinema rollouts are a great realization of this continued technology leadership.” 

Major exhibitors that are already projecting the magic with the new DP2K Digital Cinema projectors include Cinemark, Malco, Cinedigm customers Rave, Starplex and Movie Tavern, Empire Theatres Limited in Canada, Kinepolis, Europalace, Cinéville, MD2, FinnKino, DCK, Cinépolis, UGC, Vue Entertainment, Empire Cinemas UK, DFL, Real Cinemas, Palace Cinemas, Multikino, Cineplex, Yelmo, ZON Lusomundo Cinemas, Space, Euroscoop, Nordisk Cinemas, Dadi Media Group, Jinji Zhujiang Cinema, Zhejiang Shidai, Guizhou Xingkong, Shenzhen Taikoo, Xinhua, CGV China, Jiangsu Xingfu Lanhai and many others. 

The new DP2K series has received high praise from the market. “Barco will continue to deliver the proven performance, reliability and user-friendliness of their renowned DP projectors, and they will prepare us for the future with DLP Cinema® Enhanced 4K,” comments Alan Stock, CEO of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 

We have worked with Barco since 2006 and successfully installed over 300 Barco projection systems so far,” comments Liu Kaijun, General Manager of Dadi Cinema Development Ltd. “The reason why we selected Barco for this project again, is because its excellent product stability has laid a solid foundation for the good operation of our cinemas. We are also impressed by the company's superior after-sales services. As Dadi Digital Cinema is growing fast, we look forward to an even deeper cooperation with industry-leading digital cinema system suppliers – like Barco.” 

Patrick Muller, General Director of Cinemeccanica states: “Both the Barco people and our team are passionate about what they do and are real experts in their respective fields. The results are first class projectors which are unmatched in today's market. No other projector offers the same quality, ease-of-use and reliability like Barco does.” 

Wim Buyens concludes: “Especially with the success of 3D, demand is currently peaking. Digital cinema is a core business for Barco. So before the launch of the new projector family we had already made the necessary investments in our production capacity, such as the expansion of our production to China for our Asian customers, to keep track with the pace of the digital cinema rollout.” 

Supporting 2D and 3D projection, Barco's six new DP2K projectors represent the most complete projector family available today with models for every screen size and budget. In addition to advances in software, diagnostics and patented cooling technology, all DP2K projectors include enhanced security features as mandated by the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI). All of Barco's digital cinema projectors are based on the pioneering DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments, guaranteeing perfect re-production of movies, time and time again, and ensuring that theatre-goers enjoy the highest quality movie experience with consistent picture brightness, contrast and vibrant colors.
