Barco has announced the commercial release of its DP2K-P a digital cinema projector specifically designed for the needs of the post-production community. It features an expanded color gamut and contrast brightness uniformity and specialized post-production software. The company says the DP2K-P meets the stern performance demands of post-production houses as well as the review room requirements outlined in the DCI specification. “To meet the unforgiving quality expectations of the post-production market the novel DP2K-P has been fit with an extra wide color gamut – significantly wider than what is currently recommended in the DCI specifications ” says Barco product manager Bram Dieryckx. “In addition users will immediately be impressed by the greatly improved contrast and brightness uniformity which results in more image detail especially in low light regions.” 

 The DP2K-P projector elaborates on the platform of Barco’s DP2K B-series from which it adopts benefits such as light efficiency low cost of ownership and user-friendly operation. The DP2K-P integrates Texas Instruments' 1.2-inch DLP Cinema chip. To prevent dust from intruding in the chip the projector has been fitted with a patented hermetically sealed enclosure which guarantees undiminished brightness and contrast levels over the years and allows for the use of reusable air filters another industry first. Barco's new post-production projector comes with a special version of the company's Communicator software package enabling users to create and customize their 2D and 3D look-up tables. 

The DP2K-P is available now. Barco
