Berlinale Embraces Barco’s Flagship Laser Projector
The Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) is entering a new era of projection, as Barco’s Flagship Laser projector will screen a selection of movies at this year’s festival. For this 66th edition, Barco set up a Flagship Laser DP4K-60L projector at the impressive Friedrichstadt-Palast venue, Europe’s biggest show theater (1,895 seats). Here, the festival shows films from the Competition and holds Berlinale Special Galas.
Exceptional light output
“The Berlinale and Barco enjoy a pleasant, win-win partnership. While we have always loved showing our films in crisp Barco image quality, this year we are even more excited. Moviegoers can see the films in an unprecedented image quality thanks to Barco’s Flagship Laser projectors,” explains Dagmar Forelle, head of sponsorship at the Berlinale. “As true film enthusiasts, we are really impressed with the exceptional brightness of Barco’s Flagship Laser Projectors, the sharp contrast and the crisp colors. We truly appreciate Barco bringing this premium laser technology solution to the Friedrichstadt-Palast – the biggest venue of the Berlinale.”
“The Berlinale is one of most famous film festivals in the world. Barco is honored to support the festival in its mission of promoting film in all its aspects. Our Flagship Laser projectors create a stunning audience experience that makes moviegoers go more often to the movies. It’s the perfect projector for this grand film festival,” says Stijn Henderickx, Vice President Cinema for Barco.
With close to 100 Flagship Lasers installed or being installed in cinemas worldwide, Barco is the clear innovation and market leader in premium cinema laser projection. The company has also launched laser phosphor projectors for mid-end cinema projection applications. By doing so, Barco’s laser portfolio covers the projection needs of every cinema theater.
