Barco reaches 500th digital cinema projector milestone

As worldwide installations of Barco’s 2K D-Cine projectors increase, a major milestone has just been achieved with a multi-projector sale of Barco digital cinema products.
Barco announces that worldwide 2K D-CINE installations have now reached the prestigious “500” mark, with a multi-projector order of D-CINE PREMIERE DP90 and DP100 projectors. Well in advance of this milestone, Barco has made significant and vital changes to its overall digital cinema operations, with increased staff and factory capacity, plus additional dedicated clean rooms for the critical engine assembly and sealing phases of the D-CINE manufacturing process.
The upsurge in manufacturing capacity is further enhanced by the recent opening of Barco’s expanded, 40K square feet North American Service Center in Rancho Cordova, California. The center’s digital cinema department includes clean rooms for digital cinema optics, re-lamping capabilities, positive-pressure environments for cleaning and repair, plus an extensive stockroom. The department will also be able to offer comprehensive digital cinema training courses.

Each Barco D-CINE projector is based on Texas Instruments’ DLP Cinema® technology. The D-CINE PREMIERE DP90 is designed for screens up to 15m (49 ft.) wide, while the DP100 is designed for cinema screens up to 20m (65.6 ft.) wide. Both Barco projectors offer 2048 x 1080 native resolution and a 2000:1 contrast ratio — meeting or exceeding the SMPTE standards for screen brightness.

“The number 500 is an important milestone in our digital cinema rollout,” said Nico Vernieuwe, Barco’s Vice President Digital Cinema, “and it underscores that fact that we’re a key player in this market, based on the products’ reliability, robust construction, servicability and the superb TI engine.. As we increase our market share worldwide, we’re gearing up for the next milestone by keeping in sync with our manufacturing and service capabilities, both in Belgium and at our North American headquarters in California.”
