Barco brings laser to all screen sizes

Published:

The latest product offering from Barco sees laser projectors introduced for cinema screens both big and small. Targeted at small-to-mid-sized screens is the 2K SLP series, while the 2K/4K BLP range is intended for mid-to-large screens. The manufacturer has also announced two new high-contrast flagship laser models for the Premium Large Format (PLF) cinema segment that reportedly double the contrast of its previous flagship laser models.

The 2K SLP range is Barco’s entry-level range of laser projectors for screens ranging from 6 to 13m in size. Currently comprising two models, the DP2K-8SLP for 6 to 9m screens and the DP2K-10SLP for 9 to 13m screens. Both models boast 30,000 hours of constant brightness and 2K resolution. Additionally, their light output can be dimmed to 30 per cent of the initial brightness to enable 2D and 3D showings from the same projector. The DP2K-8SLP outputs 7,000 lumens while this is boosted to 9,500 lumens for the DP2K-10SLP.

Moving up in size to the BLP series, the DP4K-17BLP has been launched for screens sizes ranging from 13 to 18m and the DP4K-23BLP for screens sizes from 18 to 25m. Image brightness and resolution have also increased to 17,000 lumens 24,500 lumens respectively and DCI-compliant native 4K.

Existing owners of B- or S-series Barco projectors can reportedly benefit from the new laser technology without purchasing a new unit, by retrofitting their existing model with a laser phosphor module.

Finally, the two new high-contrast models in the manufacturer’s premium LHC series are the DP4K-20LHC and DP4K-40LHC, both a which promise doubling of the contrast ratio compared to previous models to 6,000:1, while retaining the same colour saturation and uniformity. The DP4K-20LHC boasts an 18,000 lumens output which increases to 36,000 lumens for the DP4K-40LHC. The manufacturer also states that existing owners of DP4K-60L projectors are able to upgrade them to a high-brightness model.
