At the Cinema Expo trade show, digital cinema pioneer Barco strengthens it leading position by introducing a new member to the DP family. The DP-1200 is Barco’s newest digital cinema projector, custom made for the small venue market. Thanks to the DP-1200 even the smallest cinemas now have access to digital cinema, at an affordable price.
Built on the renowned technology of the Barco DP series, the DP-1200 is Barco’s new digital cinema projector for the small market. It is designed for screens up to 12m (40ft) wide
Using the same 0.98 inch DLP Cinema chip from Texas Instruments, the DP-1200 builds further on the success of the DP1500 and DP2000 platform. Barco paid particular attention to further optimizing the operating cost, by making low wattage 2kW and 1.2kW lamps available for use in the DP1200.
In addition, the DP-1200 incorporates all the traditional Barco benefits such as a modular design, a motorized single lens solution, optimal protection of the optics and a low ventilation requirement. The communicator software and SNMP agent provides the customer with an easy key to operate their digital cinema projector.
Wim Buyens, Vice President Digital Cinema, states: “with the addition of the DP-1200, Barco presents a complete series offering a tailor made solution at everyone’s desire, budget and for every screen size.” Wim continues: “Barco’s DP series are cost competitive digital cinema projector solutions, based on a high product reliability and ease of use.”
This year, you can visit Barco at Cinema Expo from June 23rd to 26th at the RAI in Amsterdam.
