4K digital postproduction projector


4K digital postproduction projector

  • Playback of native 4K content
  • Improved contrast thanks to high-contrast lens
  • Software tuned to the postproduction workflow
  • Wide color gamut filter for accurate color matching

The DP4K-P postproduction projector is the world’s first 4K DLP projector that meets the high-performance demands for postproduction, archiving, restoration and 4K color grading.

Ultimate image quality

To respond to the highly specialized needs of postproduction houses, the DK4K-P is enhanced with several new components. It is equipped with a dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board which enables playback of native 4K content. Its wide color gamut filter creates a wide gamut for accurate color matching. And thanks to its high-contrast lens, the DP4K-P displays images with improved contrast. 

Dedicated software for postproduction

What’s more, the DP4K-P projector comes with a redesigned version of the Barco Communicator software. The overall look and feel of the Communicator interface is adapted to the dark environment in which it is used and its intuitive menu structure is quick to navigate. The dedicated software enables color correction per eye for 3D content.

Powerful input analysis

When combined with the quad 3Gb/s input board, the Communicator software is turned into a powerful input analysis tool that enables you to visualize the MSB and LSB via a bit-depth analysis of the different inputs. You can also easily compare inputs through the split-screen analysis (diagonal, vertical, side-by-side and checker board). 

  • Crisp 4K images with superior uniformity
  • Excellent color matching thanks to extra wide color gamut
  • Increased detail through exceptionally high contrast ratio
  • Software tuned to the postproduction workflow
  • Ultimate ease of use thanks to an intuitive user interface
  • Easy servicing through modular design
