Barco’s New DP4K-P Post Production Projector Featured in Canon’s 4K DI Suite at NAB 2013

Digital cinema pioneer Barco debuts its new 4K post production projector in Canon U.S.A.’s, a leader in digital imaging solutions, 4K Digital Intermediate (DI) Suite at this year’s NAB Show. 

The projector will be shown as part of a platform utilizing the Qube Cinema Xi 4K IMB with Quad 3G inputs and Quantel’s Pablo Rio with new 4K output, which when combined, facilitates a true 4K workflow. The system will be used to grade and show content shot on Canon’s EOS C500 4K digital cinema camera.

A derivative of Barco’s 4K Digital Cinema Projector, the DP4K-P offers an extended native color gamut and higher contrast levels, and comes complete with a Quad 3G input facilitating the connection of 2K and 4K signals. The solution also includes Barco’s unique and powerful Post Communicator software which integrates with the Quad 3G input to offer various split screen and image analysis functionality specifically designed for the needs of the post community.

Technology synergies create a leading-edge solution
Canon’s DI suite harnesses best-in-class technologies to create a 4K digital intermediate workflow that efficiently processes digital cinema output during the post production phase. Canon selected Quantel's Pablo Rio software for high-end color and finishing, the Qube Cinema Xi 4K Integrated Media Block (IMB) and Barco’s DP4K-P post projector because of their seamless integration and ability to generate 4K resolution output with extremely high color accuracy and uniformity.

Ultimate image quality
The DP4K-P is the first 4K DLP projector to address the high-performance demands for postproduction, archiving, restoration and 4K color grading. To respond to the highly specialized needs of post production houses, the DK4K-P has been enhanced with several new components: a dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board which enables playback of native 4K content; a wide color gamut filter for accurate color matching; and, a high-contrast lens to display images with exceptional detail. 

“We are delighted to participate in Canon’s DI suite with these dynamic industry players who share our passion for uncompromising color precision in movie making,” comments Patrick Lee, Vice President Digital Cinema for Barco North America. “Just like all of our digital cinema solutions, our DP4K-P represents our painstaking attention to detail to ensure a consistent, reliable post production platform for the most discerning producers.”
