Barco’s cinema projectors shine bright in 3D for Paramount’s Beowulf

Flawless performance of Barco’s projectors on studio lot sets the benchmark for large screen digital 3D
Barco, a global leader in digital cinema is proud to announce that its new DP-3000 digital cinema projector was selected for a North American screening of Paramount’s new 3D feature, “Beowulf.” The screening was held on the Paramount studio lot exclusively for the director, cast and crew and studio VIP’s.

“Beowulf” was developed from a script written by duo Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary, and is Zemeckis' second effort that uses a photo-realistic version of the "performance capture" technique after 2004's "The Polar Express." “Beowulf” opened simultaneously in conventional theaters and 3D on 16 November 2007.

Mark Christiansen, EVP, Operations, Paramount Pictures stated, “The Barco projectors delivered far beyond my expectations. The picture-quality was brilliant.”

Joe Demeo, Director of Sales for Digital Cinema, North America commented on the importance of the event. “This was a great opportunity to demonstrate the power of the DP-3000’s especially the simultaneous use of two projectors to show the movie in 3D for this large screen. The percentage of screenings increase every year, and Barco is proud to enable film makers to show their work without the slightest compromise on quality.”

The DP-3000 is Barco’s new flagship digital cinema projector, and the brightest digital cinema projector in the industry. At over 30,000 lumens and using Texas Instruments’ 1.2 inch DLP Cinema® chip, the DP-3000 is designed for 2D screens up to 30m (98’) wide and 3D screens over 50’ wide. With over 2000:1 contrast ratio, new motorized lenses, a new optical design and high efficiency 6.5kW lamps, the DP-3000 exemplifies Barco’s hallmark attributes of image quality, reliability and robustness.

The pioneering DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments, which is used in all of Barco’s 2K digital cinema projectors, guarantees perfect re-production of film, time and time again, and ensures movie goers enjoy the highest quality film experience with consistent picture brightness, contrast and vibrant colors. Barco holds one of only three exclusive licenses of Texas Instruments’ DLP Cinema® technology.
