Barco helps China National Film Museum Create 3D Fever

Barco, a global leader in visual technology and display solutions, is proud to announce that the China National Film Museum has deployed the DP2K-32B – the world's brightest digital cinema projector – to create the ultimate 3D viewing experience in the museum's IMAX Theatre.

Currently the largest specialized cinema museum in the world, the China National Film Museum is a monument to Chinese cinema. Following lengthy inspection and testing, the museum has chosen Barco's dual-dimension solution to showcase film digitization technology. 

Dual-dimension projection uses two computer-controlled digital projectors to overlay the images and create a sharp, seamless, enhanced projection on the screen. The technique deepens the visual immersion felt by a 3D movie viewer. With its ultra-bright performance, the DP2K-32B (the second generation of this innovative product) greatly enhances screen brightness, presenting more vivid 3D details. The product also benefits from Barco's unique optical engine dust seal, which guards against diminished brightness. In addition, Barco's patented cooling system means unparalleled reliability, a longer life-span, and reduced operating costs – all of which protect the customer's investment. 

Feng Xiaozhong, Theatre Department Director of the China National Film Museum, comments: “As digital cinema becomes more widespread, today's audience is expecting more and more from digital wide-screen 3D cinema. Therefore, as the world's largest national cinema museum, we must keep pace with the evolving technology to fulfill our customers' expectations. Barco's new DP2K-32B digital projectors fully live up to the high standards for color, brightness and depth that are essential in the cinema market. The enhanced cinema experience that these projectors create is indeed worthy of a Guinness Record holder.” 

Barco's Managing Director for Greater China, Yan Fei, comments: “The China National Film Museum represents Chinese cinema's technology, culture and areas of development. The fact that the museum is again using a Barco product in its screening hall underlines the trend towards digital screening in the Chinese cinema market. We will continue to support this process by providing innovative products, leading technologies and high-quality service.”
