Barco projects world premiere of U2 3D at Sundance Film Festival
Using the latest in 3-D digital technology, the screening takes the concert movie to unprecedented heights. Crisp images, sharp colors, it’s like being right there in the front row for the best U2 concert imaginable… and projected by Barco.
arco, a global leader in digital cinema, is proud to announce that its new DP-3000 digital cinema projector was selected for the World Premiere of “U2 3D” at the Sundance Film Festival on 19 January in Park City, Utah.
“Barco’s DP-3000 digital cinema projector delivers world-class picture-perfect 3D images, said Ian Calderon, Director of Digital Initiatives. Their projectors were at the center of the historic premiere of 3ality’s U2 3D film at the Sundance Festival. Barco moves 3D to a new level in the cinema going experience and we thank them for making this landmark screening of “U2 3D” a success”.
"We're honored to be selected for the premiere of 3ality's “U2 3D” at the Sundance Film Festival," said Joe DeMeo, Director of Sales for Barco’s Digital Cinema business. "Barco has been directly involved with U2 concerts from the video design perspective for the last few years, it only seemed appropriate to provide our brightest and best projector for this unprecedented 3D event.”
“U2 3D” puts viewers within the pulsing energy of a live U2 stadium concert. Marrying innovative digital 3D imagery and 5.1 surround sound, it creates an immersive theatrical experience unlike any 3D or concert film that has come before.
The film opened on IMAX screens and in digital 3D theaters nationwide Wednesday, January 23rd.
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.
Barco designs technology to enable bright outcomes around the world. Seeing beyond the image, we develop visualization and collaboration solutions to help you work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Our focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (from meeting and control rooms to corporate spaces), Healthcare (from the radiology department to the operating room), and Entertainment (from movie theaters to live events and attractions).

Barco is one of three licencees of Texas Instruments DLP Cinema™ technology. TI developed DLP Cinema™ technology working in close cooperation with Barco and others in the movie industry, to develop Cinema Projector and support systems based on DMD™ technology, to meet the requirement of studios, film distributors and exhibitors alike.
