Smallest Barco cinema projector takes digital cinema where it's never gone before
Kortrijk, Belgium, 23 June 2015 – Barco, global market share leader in digital cinema projection, is proud to introduce the smallest member of its digital cinema projector portfolio. The DP2K-6E brings the renowned Barco image quality, reliability, modularity, and powerful Barco Alchemy processing to chains and independent cinemas with screens up to 7.5 meters (24 feet) wide. The brand-new projector will be commercially available worldwide in October 2015, three months after the launch for the Chinese market.
“The newest E-series projector brings the acclaimed Barco image quality to the smallest theaters in the industry,” comments Stijn Henderickx, Vice President Digital Cinema at Barco “We offer the most complete range of DCI-compliant digital cinema projectors available, providing our customers with a perfect match for every cinema screen – from the smallest to the most high-end cinemas. That’s one of the reasons Barco is market share leader in cinema, with over 50,000 digital cinema projectors installed in the field.”
Easy to use
Twice as quiet as the quietest digital cinema projector currently on the market, and super compact, users can install the DP2K-6E anywhere. It also comes with an optional ceiling mount for even more flexibility. And as it’s geared with two UHP lamps that are easy to swap, maintaining the projector is a breeze as well. Sharing its clever modular design with the other Barco digital cinema projectors, the DP2K-6E ensures fast and simple maintenance, for maximum uptime. The projector can be controlled easily in various ways: locally via the Barco Commander software; or remotely, via the Barco Web Commander software.
Turnkey and cost-effective
