Offering an excellent value proposition for cinema exhibitors, both models feature consistent laser image quality, native 4K resolution, enhanced ANSI and native contrast, proven DLP technology, and a long lifetime. The equipment was recently brought to market specifically for small to mid-size cinema screens. "We are thrilled to certify two more projection systems, hence strengthening our partnership with Barco," explains Simon Eyries, EclairColor Project Manager. “The association of the quality of the Barco projectors and tremendous flexibility of the EclairColor technology allows exhibitors to showcase films and alternative content alike with a unique image quality. Our range of EclairColor-certified projection systems keeps expanding: cinema exhibitors now have access to a larger selection of cost-effective products for personalized and optimal screening solutions."
