Cinionic, the Barco cinema joint venture, will launch a native (4096×2160) 4K resolution projector with higher contrast (2300:1) and wider color gamut and uniformity this month. Barco says that more than half of the world’s movie theaters are driven by Cinionic and there are over 85,000 Barco projectors installed globally. Now the Barco Series 4 joins Cinionic’s laser portfolio.
The integrated projection system is capable of 9.5 lumens per watt and are designed to go boothless. They generate low noise levels of just 50 dB (35dB in hushbox) and perform in ambient temperatures up to 40° C. The lasers and cooling are fully integrated into their design, so the projector setup also requires less space. The four new models are the 11,000-lumen SP4K-12, the 15,000-lumen SP4K-15, the 20,000-lumen SP4K-20 and the 23,500-lumen SP4K-25.
The Series 4 laser projector is the world’s first projector to include the new compact Texas Instruments 4K chip (3x 0.98” DC4K TRP), as well as the latest RGB laser technology. 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 consistency while the Barco EcoPure design allows for instant on power and air-flow (40,000 hrs @ normal usage conditions).
The first four projectors models of the Barco Series 4 line-up are now available and will be on display at the Cinionic World booth at this year’s CinemaCon, located at the Neopolitan Ballroom in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas from April 1-4, 2019.
Here are all the detailed specs.
