Barco’s DP2k-6E Projector for Small Theaters Conquers Chinese Market

Leader in digital cinema technology Barco is proud to announce that over 100 units of its recently launched DP2K-6E projector have been shipped to Chinese customers. Introduced in July, the DP2K-6E is the smallest projector in the industry. With its compact design and 2K capabilities, the system is the perfect solution for China’s booming township theater market. 
Currently, China’s diverse movie theater market is experiencing rapid growth in 3rd and 4th tier cities, but also in smaller townships. Many of these smaller theaters are in urgent need of upgrades to 2K  DCI compliant projectors. For most commercially available projectors, however, the demanding screening environment in these locations is a huge challenge. With the DP2K-6E, Barco addresses this particular need.

Quality, reliability, and ease-of-use
The DP2K-6E has a compact, motorized body, and a modular design. With its excellent reliability, impeccable picture quality and robust Alchemy processing technology, the projector offers the greatest value for money for movie screens up to 8 meters wide. At this year’s BIRTV2015 Awards, the projector won the Outstanding Product Award. The jury lauded the unit’s optical engine optimization, innovative cooling system, extreme brightness (the highest in its range), improved sealing, and lower operating noise (48 dB only). Also mentioned was the simple and flexible mounting system which enables easy installation in the complex, ever-changing screening environment.

Culture to Countryside
The DP2K-6E features the same lens kit, electronics and filters as Barco's S-series projectors. This allows for easy sharing of components and reduced purchase costs. Combined with the minimum required mounting space and low power consumption, this constitutes a significant reduction in operating expenses for theaters. What’s more, the projector perfectly fits into China’s "Culture to Countryside" project, which brings innovative cinema technology to rural areas.

"Many of our renovation projects are conducted in western rural areas, where 2K-enabled, small-sized and powerful Digital Cinema projection is needed," says Mr. Yang Jianlin, from YunNan Golden Peacock cinema investment company, China. "This brand-new projector from Barco perfectly fits our needs, and more importantly, it's very cost friendly."

Full product portfolio
Barco’s full product portfolio gives the company the ability to rapidly meet various customer demands: an essential asset for establishing a leading position. “We offer a complete range of DCI-compliant digital cinema projectors,” explains Stijn Henderickx, Vice President Digital Cinema at Barco. “This way, our customers can find a perfect match for every cinema screen; from the smallest to the largest. That’s one of the reasons Barco is market share leader in cinema technology.” 

Liu Zhen, General Manger of CFG Barco (Beijing) Electronics concurs: “The launch of the cost-effective DP2K-6E projectors shows that our R&D team has the ability to quickly respond to customer needs. The 100 shipments shortly after launch are a further proof of the product’s popularity. Needless to say, Barco will continue to develop more innovative technologies to meet the fast-growing needs of the movie theater industry in China.”
