“We are excited that Barco has grown its laser projection product line, which now allows us to reap the rewards of stunning image quality and low TCO across our entire circuit,” comments Art Seago, President of Santikos Entertainment. “They offer an ideal combination of image quality and economic value, enabling us to simplify operations and eliminate maintenance costs associated with lamp-based projectors.”

Laser phosphor technology: economical, ultra-bright and modular
The Barco DP2K-20CLP and DP2K-15CLP laser phosphor projectors, with shipment commencing in Q2 2016, are the first of a broader series of laser phosphor projectors to be launched over the coming year. The DP2K-20CLP delivers three times the brightness of the nearest competitor, yet can be operated at a much lower cost than lamp-based projectors. Also, with the unique laser phosphor retrofit module, exhibitors who already own a Barco cinema projector can easily and cost-effectively implement laser technology into their projectors.

Barco industry leadership fuels the laser projection trend
Today, the Barco Flagship Laser projector for premium screens leads the industry as the new standard for delivering a differentiated, cost-effective experience. Installed by more than 40 exhibitors in over 20 countries, Barco Flagship Laser offers a heightened movie experience for patrons while reducing complexity and increasing operational efficiency for exhibitors. Now, with the roll out of a complete line of laser phosphor projectors, Barco can ensure the perfect laser projector for every screen.
