Tangshan, China—Jul 13, 2010

Ultra-Bright Barco Digital Cinema Projector Used for Premiere of ’Tangshan Earthquake’

Chinese film group Huayi Brothers has premiered its latest production “Tangshan Earthquake” in Tangshan using Barco's ultra-bright DP2K-32B digital cinema projectors. With a width of almost 33 meters, the screen used for this screening was 10 meters wider than an IMAX screen, making it the largest screen in the world. To achieve optimum visual effects, two Barco DP2K-32B 'Series II' digital projectors were used. Because of its record brightness, this projector model was the only product capable of fully reflecting the devastation caused by the earthquake 34 years ago.

After the premiere, many members of the audience commented that it was the first time they had watched a movie on such a huge screen, along with thousands of other people. They also reported that being able to experience something so true to reality had affected them deeply. The true-to-life visual effects on the ultra-wide screen touched the hearts of many. 

Mr. Zhonglei Wang, CEO of Huayi Brothers stated: “'Tangshan Earthquake' bears great significance for the Chinese people, in particular for the citizens of Tangshan. We chose Tangshan as the location of our premiere, because the film shows the inspirational moral character of the people of Tangshan. We hope that their resilience and perseverance will serve as an example for the whole nation. This is why we selected Barco, since only Barco's ultra-bright DP2K-32B solution could meet the expectation of broadcasting the movie live to ten thousand viewers. Additionally, Barco's high-performance projectors assured the audience a first-class viewing experience through consistent graphics, color contrast and vivid imaging. 

Barco's Managing Director in China, Yan Fei, commented: “As 'Tangshan Earthquake' was one of the most anticipated movies this year, Huayi Brothers had specially tailored a movie premiere for ten thousand people. This premiere carries great meaning, not only for Tangshan citizens, but for all Chinese. To ensure that the movie could depict the shocking scenes that took place 34 years ago, we were the first in the industry to introduce the DP2K-32B digital projector, thus allowing the Chinese audience to visualize the level of destruction brought about by the earthquake. We are honored to announce that the outstanding performance of the 'Barco DP2K-32B at the premiere has increased our potential and our expertise in the area of Digital Cinema, and that this has strengthened Barco's leading position on the Chinese digital projection market.” 

Equipped with the latest proven DLP Cinema® chip from Texas Instruments, Barco's DP2K-32B earns the title of ”the brightest digital cinema projector in the industry”. With new lenses, a new optical design, and the industry's most efficient 6.5kw lamp, it provides 33,000 lumens, suitable for screens up to 32 meters wide. Unlike the widely used 2K digital cinema projectors based on the Series I platform, the Barco DP2K-32B uses TI's Series II platform. Additionally, complementing this integration with the advanced FPGA technology will increase the overall processing ability ready for DLP Cinema® Enhanced 4K. The changes in the Series II platform systems have made it possible to update the development, design and production of Digital Cinema projectors. What's more, all DP2K projectors are very easy to install and operate. With the user-friendly Communicator software and its Diagnostic Companion feature, everyone can enjoy the Barco DP2K-series with a minimum of training and with maximum result.
