Bill Beck - the Barco laser guy - is on his way to CinemaCon 2015. Every day, he'll share with you insights and thoughts on laser projection. Join us on his journey and discover how laser projection is the biggest thing cinema has seen since the start of digitization. CinemaCon 2015 will go down in history as 'the laser year'!

I’m packing my luggage to go to CinemaCon 2015 and I want to invite you to follow my journey in the coming days. Each year, this show is the highlight for the global cinema industry. And the 2015 edition won't be an exception. The only question is: “What will be the buzz of the show?” My bet: laser!
