Barco unveils 18k lumen laser cinema projector

Barco DP2K-20CLP laser cinema projector

Barco has expanded its laser cinema projectors with a laser phosphor range including an 18,000 lumen model.

A laser phosphor retrofit module provides an upgrade path for exhibitors who already own a Barco cinema projector.

The DP2K-20CLP and DP2K-15CLP are the first two models in the series and provide 18,000 and 13,500 lumens respectively. The projectors will ship globally from Q2 2016 onwards.

Barco claims a lifetime of 30,000 hours at 50% light output for the projectors which also offer a higher optical efficiency. The projectors are also compatible with popular 3D systems.
