Barco and Cinionic Launch Next-Generation 4K Laser Projector Platform

 At CinemaCon 2019 Cinionic, the Barco cinema joint venture, introducied its brand-new Barco projector line-up for cinema screens. The next generation projector platform will deliver native 4K resolution, higher contrast, wider colour gamut and enhanced uniformity.

“With more filmmakers creating content in 4K, exhibitors are looking for ways to showcase these advancements on screen. Our Barco Series 4 laser projectors provide a unique opportunity for exhibitors to bring 4K into mainstream theaters by combining the benefits of laser technology with efficient set-up and unprecedented financial solutions,” says Wim Buyens, CEO of Cinionic. “Our new generation of laser projectors makes it easier for any theater – from independent cinemas to multiplexes – to offer audiences differentiated experiences.”

Series 4 is designed with both exhibitors and audiences in mind, building on Barco’s heritage in cinema projection. Cinionic market experts and Barco’s R&D team spent several years working directly with its customers and other industry partners, to solve the challenges they are facing in today’s cinema landscape.

The Series 4 laser projector is the world’s first projector to include the new compact Texas Instruments 4K chip, as well as the latest RGB laser technology. As a result the new projectors empower exhibitors to deliver a superb cinema experience in 4K with guaranteed unmatched and brilliant images on all types of screens.

These laser-illuminated projectors are more than twice as energy-efficient compared to old lamp-based solutions, and allow for a more attractive total cost of ownership (TCO) and operational robustness while the Barco EcoPure design delivers on power and air-flow, resulting in the greenest cinema projector ever created.

“The modularity and advanced and silent design makes this new platform futureproof, assuring bright and consistent outcomes throughout the entire lifetime and ready for current and future theater designs,” says Jan De Witte, CEO of Barco. “We are therefore convinced that this new laser projector platform is ready to claim a leading position at the start of renewal wave in cinema.”
