IMAGICA selects Barco D-Cine Premiere DP100 for its screening room

Imagica, Japan’s leading post-production facility, recently chose the Barco D-Cine Premiere DP100 2k digital projector for its screening room.

Imagica, one of the largest motion picture film laboratories and high-end video post-production facilities in Japan, started their film development activities in early 1930. Imagica leads the Japanese Post Production community, and is a true industry leader when it comes to adopting new cutting edge (digital) technologies.

In the latest development of its Digital Mastering Technology, IMAGICA has recently selected the Barco D-Cine Premiere DP100, based on 2k DLP CinemaTM technology from Texas Instruments, for its screening room. In this environment, IMAGICA is certain that the digital projection can reproduce the full color gamut of the final film print. This way, cinematographers can enhance the look of their films working with color-accurate, high-contrast images.

Mr. Kohei Fukuhara and Mr. Ken Okada, head of Digital Cinema Technical Staff further explain: “Barco is certainly recognized as a technology leader amongst professional users in the post-production community. With the D-Cine Premiere DP100, there is no worry about image quality loss during the image processing work even after repetitive grading. In this environment, cinematographers have the right technology to do the creative work knowing the final feel of the film print. Our engineers strongly appreciate the DP100 color management capability and accuracy. DP100's Color Management tool, D-Cine Communicator software, is easy to operate thanks to its very user friendly User Interface. On top of this, the Switcher ACSAR2 gives a lot of opportunities when connecting Alternative Content sources."

Nico Vernieuwe, VP Digital Cinema, Barco Media & Entertainment further elaborates: “Barco only recently announced the increased buy-in from the Post Production Market for 2k DLP CinemaTM projection solutions. Further to the announcements earlier this month regarding amongst others EFILM (US) and Soho Images (UK), we see this trend growing strongly. Next to Imagica, Film Units and Universal Studio in New Zealand and Midnight Transfer, Arri/Warner Bros and Capital FX in the UK have very recently also chosen the state-of-the-art D-Cine Premiere DP100 for their post-production facilities.”
