Opportunities for a massive impact
Tom Bert, Director of Cinema Technology, adds: “Through the conversion of the cinema market from lamp-powered to laser-enabled projection, 1-5kW power consumption reduction per screen can be achieved. When multiplied by the 30k screens that Barco has already converted to laser, and the 200k total screen opportunity, this is a massive impact. In our product design, we take sustainability into account from day 1 all the way into mass production. Our Series4 cinema projector was one of the first products to achieve the ‘Barco Eco Product label’, thanks to its integral use of sustainable materials, transportation methods, and lifecycle management. The honorable mention at the NAB Show Excellence in Sustainability Awards is therefore a big achievement for the whole team.”
