EFILM Selects Barco and SGI Professional Services

To upgrade its four Digital Intermediate (DI) suites from 1K to 2K projection, EFILM LLC, a cutting-edge digital film laboratory in Hollywood, chose Barco Digital Cinema and a new offering of product and services now available through the SGI Professional Services arm of Silicon Graphics.
SGI Professional Services will sell and provide expert installation and integration services for the recently released Barco D-Cine Premiere DP100, a state-of-the-art 2K resolution digital projector. Maintenance will be provided by SGI's world-class Support Services organisation. With this comprehensive system solution launch, SGI and Barco—long-term collaborators in the implementation of SGI Reality Center visualisation environments for the sciences, manufacturing, government and energy industries—begin a new strategic relationship in digital cinema.
“The new generation of 2K projectors, including Barco’s DP100, offer much better resolution on-screen and also much better contrast,” said Bob Eicholz, Vice President of Corporate Development at EFILM. “The Barco projector itself is a great technical design, featuring modular design for all key components. Barco’s excellent brightness, color and contrast at 2K resolution, coupled with SGI’s world-class service organization are a very powerful combination.”
The four Barco DP100 projectors will be used as part of EFILM’s Digital Intermediate process, upgrading from the 1K projection theaters currently in EFILM’s DI suites. These suites are where Directors of Photography (DPs) and Directors and Producers of films can view their movie projected digitally as they collaborate with a colorist to digitally colour grade films. “The DI process allows DPs to refine the color and other aspects of their images. In contrast with traditional lab timing, they can now see the results of their work displayed on theater-size screens, with great color, resolution and contrast using the new Barco DP100 projectors,” continued Eicholz. “In fact, these new projectors display about 70% more pixels on our screens, and provide about 65% better contrast. That translates to crystal clear, beautiful images on the screen.”
