Jerry Bruckheimer selects Barco Residential

With 48 films to his credit, Jerry Bruckheimer has witnessed first-hand the brilliant movie presentation of Barco’s industry-leading DLP Cinema® projectors. Recently, Bruckheimer outfitted his new home theater with a Barco Residential model. “Barco has always been a leader in digital cinema projection, and now I’m thrilled that I’m able to have one of their projectors in my very own home!” comments Bruckheimer.

When setting out to design his new home theater, Bruckheimer wanted to create a unique space that went beyond the typical moviegoing experience. Built in 1927 and once owned by Columbia Pictures co-founder Harry Cohn, the Beverly Hills mansion features a lavish living space surrounding the art deco-inspired theater. And, while it features two original 35mm projectors on display in a turn of nostalgia, only the Barco 4K projector (Prometheus Class), with its cutting-edge projection technology, is used to screen movies. 

“Whether produced in 4K, 3D or with Auro 11.1, movies are always better with Barco”

Michael Bay outfits home theater with Barco projection

Michael Bay recently selected a 4K Barco projector for what he describes as “one of the very best home theaters in the world” in his newly constructed East Gate Bel Air, California home.

“I’ve worked with Barco for 15 years, it’s my projector of choice,” comments Bay. “When I present my large-scale films to audiences for screening, I bring in Barco equipment. I obviously wanted the very latest and best technical specs out there – and with the image being the most important thing to me – I knew my theater had to have a Barco projector. It is simply the best.”

Multi-award winning home theater installation

A family in Plano, Texas had a large wish list for their new home theater: the largest canvas possible for widescreen and multi-screen viewing, ultra-HD resolution and pristine color images, a high-fidelity, immersive audio system, and multiple tiers of seating with excellent viewing from any angle. And, all equipment had to be elegantly concealed. HomeTronics, Barco and other partners delivered a sophisticated, multi-faceted entertainment experience, featuring a Barco 4K DCI projector which delivers superior brightness, black levels, color space and high resolution for a perfect picture. A 1.89 aspect screen with four-way masking presents the largest possible image for TV, movies and gaming.  The world’s first residential Auro-3D® system in the United States completes the package, delivering high impact and crystal-clear fidelity to create an enveloping soundstage from every speaker in the theater.
