Barco Releases Dedicated Digital Cinema Projector For Post-production

Digital Cinema pioneer Barco has announced the commercial release of its DP2K-P, a digital cinema projector specifically designed for the needs of the post-production community.
Featuring a greatly expanded colour gamut, superior contrast, exceptional brightness uniformity and specialised post-production software, the DP2K-P effortlessly meets the stern performance demands of post-production houses as well as the review room requirements outlined in the DCI specification.
The new projector will immediately be available for commercial distribution.
Bram Dieryckx, Barco Product Manager, explained: "To meet the unforgiving quality expectations of the post-production market, the novel DP2K-P has been fit with an extra wide colour gamut - significantly wider than what is currently recommended in the DCI specifications. In addition, users will immediately be impressed by the greatly improved contrast and brightness uniformity, which results in more image detail, especially in low light regions."
Barco's new DP2K-P projector elaborates on the proven platform of its successful DP2K B-series, from which it adopts highly-praised benefits such as optimum light efficiency, lowest cost of ownership and user-friendly operation. The DP2K-P integrates Texas Instruments' 1.2" DLP Cinema chip - a forward-looking choice for 4K compatibility. To prevent dust from intruding in the chip, the projector has been fitted with a patented, hermetically sealed enclosure, which guarantees undiminished brightness and contrast levels over the years and allows for the use of reusable air filters, another industry first. Thanks to its enhanced DMD cooling system, the projector also delivers a drastically extended lifetime.
Barco's new post-production projector comes with a special version of the company's Communicator software package, enabling users to meticulously create and customise their 2D and 3D look-up tables. Thanks to this increased control over the colour space, post-production professionals will experience an unprecedented level of accuracy.
With the introduction of the DP2K-P, Barco builds on a long history of innovation in the post-production arena, which started with the D-Cine Premiere DP90P - the first dedicated digital cinema post-production projector on the market.
Today, Barco's commitment to the post-production market is evident in its comprehensive product offering, including not only the new DP2K-P post-production projector, but also the RHDM-1701P and RHDM-2301P grade-1 displays for video reference tasks.
