We unveiled our 55 000 lumens, 4K digital projector for the first time to the public in January 2012. We considered (and still consider) the technology de-risked at that time: we know how to build a state-of-the art laser illuminated projector. But where does it go from here?

The premium cinema trend, featuring giant screens, plush seating, gourmet concessions, and digital 3D projection, is attracting a new breed of moviegoer. This wide array of amenities is helping leading theater owners such as Carmike Cinemas differentiate themselves from the at-home and small screen cinema experience to provide patrons with more value for their entertainment dollar. Immersive 3D audio is emerging as the logical next step in premier cinema, and Carmike Cinemas' Riverstone 15 in Canton, Georgia, is now the region’s first to offer this one-of-a-kind immersive cinema audio with Auro 11.1 by Barco.

A peek behind the curtain: Barco's prototype laser projector

Prototype laser cinema projector
We’ve written a great deal of theory about laser technology in this ‘laser blog’. Thought it’s all been science fiction? Not so. Barco knows exactly how it works in practice too. After all, we’ve been giving demos with a high-end, 55,000 lumen 4K laser projector prototype since 2012. Instead of a regular projector lamp, this prototype uses a laser light source, resulting in unmatched brightness.
