IBC Convention, Amsterdam—Sep 9, 2010
Barco Unveils Dedicated Digital Cinema Projector for Post-Production
At the IBC Convention in Amsterdam, Digital Cinema pioneer Barco will unveil a brand-new cinema projector specifically intended for digital post-production. The Barco DP2K-P is the world's only Enhanced 4K-ready projector specifically conceived and built to meet the enhanced performance needs of post-production houses.
Barco's fit-for-purpose post-production projector builds on the proven platform of its DP2K B-series products, from which it inherits widely acclaimed benefits such as best-in-class light efficiency, lowest cost of ownership, and ultimate ease-of-use. At the heart of the projector is Texas Instruments' 1.2” DLP Cinema® chip – a forward-looking choice for 4K compatibility.
To respond to the highly specialized needs of post-production houses, the new DP2K-P features a greatly expanded color gamut that is considerably wider than the current DCI recommended color space. In addition, the projector sets itself apart by delivering significantly more brightness uniformity and more contrast than any other projector, which results in increased image detail, especially in low light regions.
Along with the new DP2K-P, Barco will also release a special version of the accompanying Communicator software, enabling users to fully customize their 2D and 3D look-up tables. Thanks to this increased control over the color space, post-production professionals can do their job with an unprecedented level of accuracy.
The launch of the DP2K-P continues Barco's history of innovation in the post-production arena. The company developed its expertise in this market with its D-Cine Premiere DP90P projector, the first dedicated digital post-production projector on the planet, which quickly became the standard worldwide. In addition, Barco has demonstrated its commitment to the post-production market segment with several other products, including the RHDM-1701P and RHDM-2301P grade-1 LCD displays for video reference tasks.
