In ever increasing numbers, exhibitors around the world are making the transition to laser projection. In response to that, at CinemaCon 2017 Barco will unveil the DP4K-40LHC and 20LHC RGB Flagship, 6P 3D single chassis, integrated high contrast projectors to the American audience. But nowhere in the new projectors’ specs will you find the term high dynamic range, which, given their capabilities seems like an oversight. Barco has a specific explanation for this, namely that it believes the exhibition world needs an HDR standard.
