Barco gets Guinness Record for brightest projector

Barco has scooped a Guinness World Record after an adjudicator awarded its DP2K-32B the accolade of the ‘brightest digital cinema projector’. The record attempt took place at Barco’s facilities in Kuurne, Belgium and the achievement was witnessed and verified by Guinness adjudicator Kaoru Ishikawa.

The company says a Barco DP2K-32B digital cinema projector achieved an exact brightness of 43,000 lumens after colour correction to match the DCI color spectrum, measured at the centre of a 4m² cinema screen at a distance of 5 meters from the projector.

Wim Buyens, vice president of Barco Digital Cinema, congratulated the engineering team and all staff involved with the development of the projector.
