Turner Classic Movies selects Barco's 4K to show restored films at the TCM Classic Film Festival

Barco has been selected as the exclusive 4K digital cinema projector supplier for the 2011 TCM Classic Film Festival, bringing to the big screen digitally-restored classic films like Citizen Kane, The Godfather and Breakfast at Tiffany's. With more than 70 screenings planned and dozens of movie celebrities in attendance, Barco joins a highly celebrated event to honor the classic era of American and European cinema.

Barco, a worldwide leader in digital cinema, is partnering with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to present some of the most iconic films of the 20th Century, projecting them in dazzling DLP Cinema® Enhanced 4K resolution to entertain classic film aficionados and a new generation of movie goers. Barco's DP4K-32B will be showing films that have been painstakingly digitally restored to their original glory. 

“Turner Classic Movies believes in the highest standards in presentation, and Barco's unparalleled technology allows us to show these renowned classics in their most pristine form,” said Genevieve McGillicuddy, managing director of the TCM Classic Film Festival and senior director of brand activation for TCM. “We're proud to work with Barco in presenting these films as they were meant to be seen.” 

The flagship model among Barco's fully DCI-compliant line of digital cinema projectors, the DP4K-32B features Texas Instruments' 1.38” DLP Cinema® chip to achieve stunning images in 4K resolution (4,096 x 2,160). Its ultra brightness and vibrant color accuracy produces razor-sharp images to offer a premium viewing experience. The DP4K-32B's efficient optical design and patented DMD cooling system result in exceptionally long lifetime and the lowest total cost of ownership. 

“We are honored that TCM has chosen Barco to help celebrate these internationally-acclaimed classics,” commented Patrick Lee, VP Digital Cinema for Barco North America. “Their choice of digital cinema projectors speaks volumes about their dedication to upholding the highest standards in presentation. We both admire and respect their commitment to restoring such an important part of motion picture history.” 

The TCM Classic Film Festival runs April 28-May 1, 2011 in Hollywood, California. Screenings and events will be held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Chinese 6 Multiplex, the Egyptian Theatre, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and the Music Box Theatre, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
