The Giant Screen at Millennium Point, Uk, Benefits from Barco’s Large-Format Projection Technology

Digital cinema pioneer Barco is pleased to announce that digital 3D cinema company D3D Cinema has installed Barco's large-format projection system at The Giant Screen at Millennium Point, Birmingham, UK. The installation – set up with two Barco Enhanced 4K DLP Cinema® projectors – was part of a larger refurbishment to transform Millennium Point's existing IMAX theater into an independent giant screen cinema.

The VIP opening event featured a screening of The Adventures of Tintin in 3D.The Giant Screen at Millennium Point reopened its doors on Monday, 24 October, with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin in 3D. After transforming from IMAX to digital, the cinema at Millennium Point is now the UK's largest independent giant screen digital 3D cinema. Outfitted with twin state-of-the-art Barco 4K digital projectors and Dolby Digital 3D technology, the new system allows Millennium Point to show a wider selection of 2D and 3D feature films and documentaries – plus, a wider range of content, including live screenings of music and sports events 

Karen Steed, Acting CEO of Millennium Point, says: “This is a very exciting time for the cinema at Millennium Point. The landscape of filmmaking and cinema is evolving at an enormous rate, and in order to succeed in the current climate, we have gone digital. To replace our IMAX installation, we undertook a rigorous tendering process with companies worldwide to find a suitable system. Barco's DP4K-32B digital cinema projector was the only one that could offer us the image quality and brightness required by our giant screen.” 

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Barco for the installation at Millennium Point,” comments D3D President and Founder Don Kempf. “Previously, exhibitors were limited to only one technology for projecting giant screen movies. Now, thanks to this refurbishment with Barco's DP4K-32B projectors, Millennium Point is ready for the future and now has access to a wealth of available content, in 2D as well as in 3D, guaranteed to enchant audiences with superior digital image quality.” 

“Since its opening in 2001, Millennium Point has been a center of excellence in terms of science and technology,” says Tim Sinnaeve, Market Director Digital Cinema for Barco. “We fervently support its progressive decision to go forward as a digital giant screen cinema and are proud of yet another successful project with D3D. It is fantastic news that our premium dual 4K DLP projection system gives Millennium Point Cinema the chance to offer its fans an even better giant screen cinema experience.” 

Barco's DP2K and DP4K projectors represent the most complete projector family available today – with models for every screen size and budget. Barco's Enhanced 4K DLP Cinema® projectors combine the widely acclaimed benefits of the DP2K series – including best-in-class light efficiency, lowest cost of ownership, and easy serviceability – with advances in software, diagnostics and patented cooling technology, resulting in the coolest 4K engine in all senses of the word.
