About DP2K-8S

The DP2K-8S projector is Barco’s most compact, fully integrated digital cinema projector designed for smaller theaters, boothless cinemas and single screens. By merging the projector and media server functionalities into a single projector module, the DP2K-8S 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 in the projection booth. And for additional reliability, the smart projector detects potential operational errors and warns users if, for instance, a scheduled show is missing assets or KDMs. Great in TMS environments, the projector operates stand-alone in single-screen applications. Thanks to the embedded Barco Web Commander user interface, shows can be created and scheduled remotely.

DCI image quality

Built upon the proven benefits of Barco’s renowned DP2K cinema projectors, the DP2K-8S guarantees crisp images over time thanks to its acclaimed manual color convergence mechanism. While its standard Xenon lamps offer vibrant colors, its motorized lenses ensure a perfect image ratio at all times. 

Low total cost of ownership

Geared with integrated technology that drives operational and maintenance costs down, the DP2K-8S offers DCI quality images and ultimate reliability at a low TCO. As such, it is the perfect choice for exhibitors looking for a worry-free solution to go digital with a minimal hassle and risk. 

The DP2K-8S 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.
