Platinum Theatres Selects Barco’s 0.69” DLP Cinema® Projector Purpose-Built for Smaller Theaters

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema technology, is helping smaller theaters reap the image quality and low total cost of ownership benefits of digital projection, recently supplying Platinum Theatres with its DCI-compliant Barco DP2K-10S models. 
 
Proving that big things do come in small packages, the award-winning DP2K-10S enables small theaters and art house cinemas to offer first-class movie experiences, delivering the same superior image quality offered by Barco’s larger models. Platinum Theatres has outfitted many of its auditoriums with the new 10S projector, in addition to several DP2K-23B units, making it a 100 percent Barco cinema.

Compact and simple, yet powerful
In designing the projectors, special consideration was given to the specific needs of smaller exhibitors, resulting in a highly intuitive user interface that simplifies operation and ensures low operating costs.

“We’re very happy with the compact size of the Barco DP2K-10S, which makes it ideal for small booths and screens. We also have the Barco DP2K-23B projector, and the image quality of the 10S model is just as good!” comments Al Guerra, Owner of Platinum Theatres. “We really appreciate the ease of programming and operation of the 10S. It’s one of the simplest things I've worked with in many years in the cinema business.”

Superior image quality and economy
Purpose-built for screens up to 10 meters (33 feet), the DP2K-10S features exceptional brightness thanks to its superior optical efficiency, DMD cooling system and patented sealed engine. Energy-efficient Xenon lamps, a standby eco-mode, and reusable air filters help to minimize operating cost.

“The Barco DP2K 10S Digital Cinema Projector is a great option for smaller screens. Easy to install, bright and efficient, it’s a very affordable option compared to most other projectors,” comments Kyle Connor, Owner of TECS (Theatre Equipment, Construction & Service, Inc.) 

The 10S is highly portable, with integrated handles and a smart, modular architecture accompanied by user-friendly software tools. It is also available with an integrated media server and redundant storage in a DP2K-10Sx model.

Committed to theaters, large and small
“We’ve channeled all the best attributes of our digital cinema technologies into a tight, elegant model that offers amazing brightness and brings today’s movies to life,” comments Patrick Lee, Vice President Digital Cinema for Barco North America. “We are thrilled to provide Platinum Theatres with a projection solution that truly meets the needs of their smaller auditoriums.”
