Barco is expanding its laser portfolio with two Smart Laser projectors that provide large cinema screens with up to 33,000 lumens brightness and 2K or 4K resolution. Barco’s Smart Laser projectors free exhibitors from all lamp-related hassle and cost, allowing them to cut costs and simplify their operations. What’s more, they also provide superior image quality. The brand-new DP2K-32BLP and DP4K-32BLP bring Barco’s laser projector range to 15 models in total, the widest laser portfolio in the industry.
“By introducing the DP2K-32BLP and DP4K-32BLP projectors with light output levels up to 33,000 lumens, we now provide exhibitors with Smart Laser projectors that are perfect for large cinema screens,” said Stijn Henderickx, vice president cinema at Barco. “We provide the widest range of DCI-compliant laser-illuminated cinema projectors in the industry, with no fewer than 15 ultra-bright, high-contrast Flagship Laser projectors and cost-effective Smart Laser projectors. We’re driving the adoption of laser projection around the world by enabling exhibitors to tap into the benefits of laser projection – irrespective of their screen size, theater size, or budget.”
Barco’s Smart Laser projectors offer superior image quality at a more attractive total cost of ownership than lamp-based projectors. Barco is also offering a warranty program with these laser projectors.
Exhibitors who already own a 32B Barco Xenon cinema projector can retrofit their current projector to benefit from laser technology, rather than invest in an entirely new model. Exhibitors can replace their current lamp house with a compact laser phosphor module via an on-site upgrade.
