Sacramento, CA —Mar 1, 2006

And the nominee is — Barco!

Barco XLM H25 projectors take center stage at the 78th annual Academy Awards show on March 5, 2006.
Barco announces that Los Angeles-based SenovvA Inc. has selected Barco digital projection equipment for multiple video screens at this year’s Oscar night broadcast.

SenovvA will provide three Barco XLM H25s at the prominent center stage position, the show’s 38-foot wide Best Picture screen, plus a pair of Barco XLM H25s for the stage’s 35-foot wide Cinemascope screen. The Best Picture screen is a front projection, while the Cinemascope screen is a rear projection — and both with show high-definition content at 720p.

Selected for their high brightness output at 28,000 center lumens and their native 2048 x 1080 pixel resolution, the XLMs are ideally suited for a wide-screen venue such as the Oscar night. Frank McMinn, SenovvA’s President, commented on the decision to select Barco projectors for the Academy Awards. “Because it’s a live three-hour show, flawless execution is required, and there’s no room for any real technical challenges. The XLMs give us the required brightness and resolution,” noted McMinn, “because we really need a big horsepower projector to illuminate the front screen, and punch through the stage lights. In addition, the projector’s firmware is perfectly compatible with the video truck’s high-definition cameras, the Thomson WorldCams.”

With 33 years of combined experience doing the Academy Awards, the SenovvA team places equipment reliability at the top. “We go out on a limb sometimes with the Oscars,” said McMinn, “and it’s nice to stick to things that you’re comfortable with. In a worldwide broadcast such as this, we depend heavily on the reliability of the equipment. And because we don’t get a second chance in a live broadcast, it comes down to reliability as the number one reason why we chose Barco.”
