Premium Beat logo
Laser projection is the future of digital cinema, and if you ask Bill Beck – Barco’s very own “Laser Guy” – the future is now! Beck explains the advantages of laser- versus lamp-based movie projection and how 6-color RGB laser primaries create better 3D movie experiences in a recent blog edition of The Beat by PremiumBeat.com. Barco’s single laser projector 6P system has been designed to address some of the challenges relating to white point, brightness and color gamut for each “eye”. Its DP4K-60L projector has been built on a very flexible, versatile laser projection platform for cinema exhibitors, and soon, non-cinema applications, offering premium image quality and very low operating costs.

While the benefits of laser projection are well understood from a movie quality perspective – brighter 2D and especially 3D, more natural color and contrast, and ultra-realistic (fast!) frame rates and higher resolution, the economic reality for many exhibitors and studios is a bit more complicated. “Until Hollywood says what the color gamut, the frame rate and the dynamic range are going to be, and then supports that with production versions of their movies, it’s just going to be technology testing.”
