Barco, one of only three projector manufacturers to hold a license for Texas Instruments DLP Cinema™ display technology, is pleased to announce that its D-Cine DP100 Projector has been chosen to bring the digital premiere of “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” at Tokyo International Forum in Tokyo on June 18th.

Premiering in Tokyo on June 18th, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith continued after its European premiere with screenings in, amongst others, on May 15th Cannes Film Festival as a official partner, London, Berlin, Madrid and Rome throughout May.

A Barco D-Cine DP100 projector featuring TI DLP Cinema™ technology allowed millions of fans in Japan to experience “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” as Lucasfilm created it: with rich color, high contrast and incredible sharpness.

“Barco is very proud to be chosen to provide the projection technology for these much anticipated premiere.
