Barco delivers 4K 3D and 4K at 60fps for entire range of 4K Xenon and laser cinema projectors

Barco has introduced an update for its digital cinema projector families. Named ‘Barco Alchemy’, it combines media server functionality with cinema processing electronics to increase reliability and ease-of-use in the projection booth.

The Barco Alchemy technology is fully compatible with all new and installed Series 2 Barco projectors.

The 4K Barco Alchemy projectors are the first to show 4K movies at 60 frames per second and 4K 3D content on a single projector. Thanks to the projectors’ modularity, customers who already own a Barco Series 2 projector can upgrade it to benefit from the Barco Alchemy technology.

To offer exhibitors choice, Barco will continue to support the integration of GDC and Doremi media servers into its projectors as well. All Barco 4K projectors will be capable of 4K 3D and 4K at 60 fps when the Barco Alchemy technology is added. The current Barco S-, C- and B-series with integrated Barco Alchemy technology will be readily available as of Q2 2014.
