Barco has introduced what it says is the world’s first 4K projector dedicated to post-production archiving restoration and 4K color grading. The DP4K-P features an expanded color gamut higher contrast and superior color uniformity in comparison with standard digital cinema projectors is specifically designed to meet the exacting demands of the postproduction industry. A unique feature for the post-production community is the dedicated Communicator software which provides greater control over the color space enables color correction per eye for 3D content and offers powerful input analysis. “To achieve best-in-class performance for post-production we have equipped our DP4K-P with purpose-designed components such as a 4K input board and a high-contrast lens ” says Goran Stojmenovik product manager at Barco. “And thanks to the redesigned Communicator software – fully tuned to the post-production workflow – post-production professionals will be able to boost their creative processes.”

 The DP4K-P comes with a dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board which enables playback of native 4K content. Its special color filter creates a wide gamut – considerably wider than the current DCI/SMPTE recommended color space – to accurately match colors to any color gamut. Each projector is calibrated for superior brightness and color uniformity.
