Barco Selected to Provide Projectors for Prestigious 42nd International Film Festival of India

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema, is selected to play a part in the International Film Festival of India, which is held in Goa from 23 November to 3 December next. This year's edition of the festival, one of the biggest events of its kind in Asia, highlights the use of technology with a selection of 3D stereoscopic movies, amongst other features. 

Barco has provided four digital cinema projectors based on DLP technology. The DP2K-20c, DP2K-32b and DP2000 projectors ensure the consistent picture brightness, rich contrast and vibrant colors required to bring the filmmakers' cinematic creations to life.

The International Film Festival of India, a joint organization of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and the Government of Goa, has programmed more than hundred movies from about sixty-five countries. Barco delivered four projectors from its DP series to ensure the audience of a perfect digital cinema experience: one DP2000 DLP projector; two compact DP2K-20c projectors (ideal for screens up to 20 meters wide) and the top-of-the-line, ultra-bright DP2K-32 projector (which lights up screens up to 32 meters wide). 

Widest range, to suit diverse needs 
Barco has always been at the forefront of digital cinema technology. From the compact and budget-friendly DP2K-12C to the ultra-bright DP2K-32B, it offers the widest range of projectors for various types of cinema screens. The DP-2K C and B Series allow cinemas to provide a stunning experience in 2D and 3D, even on larger cinema screens. “Our solutions pledge an optimal cost of ownership, including reduced operating cost, reusable filters and low maintenance, while their image quality is outstanding,” said Abel Garamhegyi, Managing Director, Barco India. “India produces about the largest number of films around the world. So cinema-going is big business here and digital cinema is sharply on the rise. This 10-day film festival is an ideal opportunity to showcase the variety of our range and the excellent picture quality our projectors offer. It will help us strengthen our brand on the Indian market.” 

Enhance the viewing experience 
IFFI aims to nurture, encourage and inspire Indian cinema, introduce it to the world and expose the audience and filmmakers to emerging technologies. With each edition the viewing experience is enhanced, enlarged and enriched. The leading digital cinema projectors supplied by Barco help IFFI achieve that aim, thus making filmmakers' artistic creations come alive. 

With 450 screens already converted, digital cinema is gaining in popularity in the Indian market, these days. It is estimated that another 400 screens will turn digital in the course of 2012. 

The International Film Festival of India (IFFI), founded in 1952, is one of the major film festivals in Asia. Held annually in the beach town of Goa, on the west coast of the country, the festival aims to provide a common platform for the cinemas of the world to project the excellence of the film art; thus contributing to the understanding and appreciation of film cultures of different nations in the context of their social and cultural ethos; and promoting friendship and cooperation among people of the world.
