Barco’s Latest 6P Laser Projector Won Prestigious BIRTV Award

Global visualization leader Barco is proud to announce that its newest 6P 4K laser projector, the DP4K-60L, has won an award at the 2014 Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition (BIRTV). Judges praised Barco’s world leading laser technology in digital cinema projection and the strength of the company’s R&D accomplishments.

The BIRTV awards program is one of the most prestigious in the digital cinema industry. Sponsored by the BIRTV committee and the Advanced Television Engineering journal, winners are selected by a panel of industry experts according to rigorous and objective standards. Barco products have won BIRTV awards for several consecutive years; this year, the company’s 6P 4K laser projector took the prize especially for its revolutionary design and excellent performance.

Integrated 4K 6P laser projection technology
From xenon lamp illumination through laser 3P to the latest 6P, Barco has consistently engaged in technical innovation to forward digital cinema projection technology. The DP4K-60L laser projector is the first DCI-compliant laser projector that is capable of showing 4K content at 60 fps and 3D movies in full 4K resolution.

“High-frame-rate and high-dynamic-range film projection will be the status quo in the future,” says Dr. Clark Xu, director of the Strategic Business Development division at CFG-Barco Electronics in Beijing. “The Barco new laser projector has broken through many technical barriers, and we are eager to share it with the cinema industry and help give audiences an even better movie going experience.”

Unique technology for a premium movie going experience
Compared to xenon lamp projectors, Barco’s DP4K-60L laser projector has significantly better brightness, color gamut, and contrast. The projector is unique in its ability to minimize speckle—even on silver screens—eliminating the need for a mechanical screen-vibrating system to achieve the desired image quality. In addition, the projector is powered by Barco’s advanced Alchemy technology combined with the Integrated Cinema Processor (ICP) and Integrated Media Block (IMB), helping relieve exhibitors of matching and debugging work and realize more streamlined operations.

“The DP4K-60L laser projector is an excellent choice for premium theatres seeking to stand out from the crowd and for users who desire future-proof technology,” says Mr. Phil Chen, CFG-Barco’s general manager. “So far, 10 units of Barco laser digital cinema projectors have been ordered from Chinese exhibitors, all ten will be installed by end of this year. We are very proud of winning the BIRTV award and delighted to help cinemas provide their visitors with the very best experience they can.”
