With the recent achievement of full DCI compliance for its DP2K-32B model, Barco now offers the most extensive product line of DCI compliant digital cinema projectors in the industry. From the compact and budget-friendly DP2K-12C to the top-of-the-line DP2K-32B, the full DP2K product line provides the perfect match for every possible cinema screen.
Digital cinema pioneer Barco announced today that all six of its digital cinema projectors have passed the full DCI compliance test administered by CineCert LLC, verifying their compliance with the DCI's Digital Cinema System Specification (DCSS). These standards promote an open architecture for digital cinema and ensure a uniform and high level of technical performance, reliability and quality control.
“We are proud to celebrate this landmark achievement on behalf of our customers and the studios. We can now say unequivocally that Barco can provide the right DCI-compliant projector for every screen, with the widest range of digital cinema projectors available today for small, mid-size and the largest venues,” commented Wim Buyens, VP Digital Cinema for Barco.
Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) is the originator and administrator of the Compliance Test Plan (CTP), created to provide a uniform testing procedure for demonstrating compliance with the DCSS. The DCSS is intended to promote the widespread deployment of high quality digital cinema equipment that is interoperable and provides rigorous content security. Manufacturers may demonstrate compliance by developing equipment in accordance with the DCSS and its referenced SMPTE, ISO and FIPS standards, and then submitting the equipment for testing to a third-party entity licensed by DCI to administer the CTP. In the United States, CineCert fulfills the role of a third-party testing facility.
