LIPA applauds the IEC's update to international laser standards

LIPA - Laser Illuminated Projector Association logo
As a founding member of the Laser Illuminated Projector Association (LIPA), Barco and LIPA applaud the efforts of the dedicated scientists of the International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) for the May 16 publication of IEC 60825‐1:2014, also known as ‘Edition 3’. This standard acknowledges, among many other updates, that laser-illuminated projectors should be classified the same way as lamp‐based projectors; rather than as laser light show products. This acknowledges that the light emitted from laser-illuminated projectors is unlike that of collimated laser beams used in light shows or other direct laser beam products.

US-FDA product variance for Barco laser-illuminated cinema projector

Barco laser projector
We are happy to announce that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted a product variance for our brand-new 6 primary laser 3D (6P) laser-illuminated projector. The FDA has also granted approval for a predefined laser show variance, allowing US-based exhibitors to safely install the 4K Barco laser projector without excessive legal constraints and extra costs. In this way, exhibitors who install the Barco laser projector do not need to prove compliancy with the same stringent regulations as laser light shows. Thanks to its fully integrated and inherently safe design – featuring unified laser light sources that are housed within the projector – the Barco laser projector prevents direct contact with native laser light, offering exhibitors worry-free operation and ultimate peace of mind.

China’s leading cinema exhibitors boost movie image quality with Barco’s laser projectors

Barco laser projector
Three of China’s leading cinema chains will be pioneers in installing Barco’s advanced laser projectors, including Guangzhou JinYi Media Corporation (JinYi), Sichuan Pacific Cinema and Henan Oscar. The Jin Yi cinema will feature the world’s largest screen, at 35 meters, in a commercial theater powered by a dual laser projector system. “To project ultra-bright images onto our new giant 35-meter screen, we’d normally need four DP4K-32B projectors. Instead, dual laser projectors will do the job even much better,” says Jacky Lee, General Manager of Project Command Center at JinYi. In addition, the heightened image quality of Barco laser projectors will deliver unprecedented visual effects, especially for 3D.
