Compact DLP Barco Alchemy Cinema projector for screens up to 12m (39ft)

The Barco Alchemy DP2K-12C is a compact and fully integrated digital cinema projector, based on Texas Instruments' proven 0.98” DLP Cinema® chip. It ensures a first-class movie experience with consistent picture brightness, rich contrast and vibrant colors. By merging the projector and media server functionalities into one module, the DP2K-12C Barco Alchemy projector is a full-fledged, DCI-compliant projector and media-server solution that includes on-board storage. Reducing the required hardware, it increases simplicity and reliability. The smart projector even detects potential operational errors and warns users if, for instance, a scheduled show is missing assets or KDMs. Great in TMS environments, it operates stand-alone in single-screen applications. Thanks to the embedded Barco Web Commander user interface, shows can be created and scheduled remotely.

Low cost of ownership

Geared with the integrated Barco Alchemy technology that drives operational and maintenance costs down, the DP2K-12C offers superior image processing, pristine images and ultimate reliability at a low TCO. 

Easy operation and maintenance

The DP2K-12C comes with the ‘Barco Web Commander’ screen management system featuring an intuitive user interface. The projector detects potential operational errors and warns users if, for instance, a scheduled show is missing assets or KDMs. It also has an easy-to-use, fully modular architecture for simple serviceability and higher uptime.

The DP2K-12C projector is also available in a package with a third-party media server and it can be ordered without the Barco Alchemy module as well.
