Barco launches 4K digital postproduction projector
Posted on Thursday, February 21, 2013

 

Kortrijk, Belgium, 21 February 2013 – Global digital cinema leader Barco is proud to introduce the world’s first 4K projector dedicated to postproduction, archiving, restoration and 4K color grading. Featuring a greatly expanded color gamut, higher contrast and superior color uniformity in comparison with standard digital cinema projectors, the DP4K-P is specifically designed to meet the exacting demands of the postproduction industry. A unique and appealing feature for the postproduction community is the dedicated Communicator software, which provides greater control over the color space, enables color correction per eye for 3D content, and offers powerful input analysis.
“To achieve best-in-class performance for postproduction, we have equipped our DP4K-P with purpose-designed components such as a 4K input board and a high-contrast lens,” comments Goran Stojmenovik, Product Manager at Barco. “And thanks to the redesigned Communicator software – fully tuned to the postproduction workflow – postproduction professionals will be able to boost their creative processes.”

Ultimate image quality
The DP4K-P comes with a dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board, which enables playback of native 4K content. Its special color filter creates a wide gamut – considerably wider than the current DCI/SMPTE recommended color space – to accurately match colors to any color gamut. Each projector is calibrated for superior brightness and color uniformity. And thanks to its purpose-built lens set, the DP4K-P displays images with significantly higher contrast. 

New software tool for flexible control
The dedicated Communicator software has been revamped in close cooperation with Barco’s long-term partners in the industry. The overall look and feel of the interface has been adapted to the dark environment in which it is used. Its intuitive menu structure is quick to navigate and all of the functionalities are conveniently bundled into a single section, which enhances the workflow and eliminates the need for extra training or additional tools. The dedicated software offers increased control over the color space and enables color correction per eye for 3D content.

Powerful input analysis
When combined with the quad 3Gb/s input board, the Communicator software becomes a powerful input analysis tool, enabling postproduction professionals to visualize the picture content via a bit-depth analysis of the different inputs. They can also easily compare inputs through the split-screen analysis (diagonal, vertical, side-by-side and checker board). These new features support the visual evaluation and enable postproduction professionals to test the quality of the input content with more confidence.
