Barco’s “Laser Guy” Bill Beck extolls the virtues of digital cinema laser

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.

Barco’s “Laser Guy” Bill Beck discusses laser projection standards in The Economist

The Economist logo
The Economist took on the topic of digital cinema laser projection in their Technology Quarterly last month, and Barco’s “Laser Guy” Bill Beck addressed the ongoing issue of standards. 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.”

Can new technology improve breast screening accuracy?

Barco Healthcare medical displays for mammography and breast imaging
For many women, their annual mammogram is an essential preventative test – yet standard screening, such as mammography, can have limitations with regard to accuracy, particularly for women with dense breasts. Studies suggest that among women who undergo an annual screening mammography over a 10-year period, around half will be given at least one false-positive result, with around 1,000 women subsequently undergoing a biopsy(1).

Raising the accuracy bar for medical display color imaging

Aunt Minnie logo
Despite skyrocketing growth in the use of color in radiology imaging, there is currently no consensus standard for how color information on medical images needs to be visualized on color displays, nor how medical color displays should be calibrated to ensure standardized and consistent color behavior. As reported in AuntMinnie.com this month, Barco’s Tom Kimpe, PhD and VP Technology Innovation explains that "This results in a situation where there's a large variability of color appearance and makes it very hard to have a consistent image. It makes quality assurance a challenge." Dr. Kimpe spearheaded a recent study proposing an extension to the DICOM Grayscale Standard Display Function (GSDF) to solve this issue and promote higher color accuracy of medical images, presented at RSNA 2014 in December.
