Mar 04, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Barco NV, a designer and developer of visualization solutions, has introduced a 4K projector, the DP4K-P, dedicated to postproduction, archiving, restoration and 4K color grading.
The DP4K-P comes with a dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board, which enables playback of native 4K content. Its special color filter creates a wide gamut - considerably wider than the current DCI/SMPTE recommended color space - to accurately match colors to any color gamut. Each projector is calibrated for superior brightness and color uniformity.
According to the company, the dedicated Communicator software has been revamped in close cooperation with Barco's long-term partners in the industry. The overall look and feel of the interface has been adapted to the dark environment in which it is used. Its intuitive menu structure is quick to navigate and all of the functionalities are conveniently bundled into a single section, which enhances the workflow and eliminates the need for extra training or additional tools. The dedicated software offers increased control over the color space and enables color correction per eye for 3D content.
When combined with the quad 3Gb/s input board, the Communicator software becomes a powerful input analysis tool, enabling postproduction professionals to visualize the picture content via a bit-depth analysis of the different inputs. They can also easily compare inputs through the split-screen analysis (diagonal, vertical, side-by-side and checker board). These new features support the visual evaluation and enable postproduction professionals to test the quality of the input content with more confidence, the company said.
"To achieve best-in-class performance for postproduction, we have equipped our DP4K-P with purpose-designed components such as a 4K input board and a high-contrast lens," comments Goran Stojmenovik, product manager at Barco. "And thanks to the redesigned Communicator software - fully tuned to the postproduction workflow - postproduction professionals will be able to boost their creative processes."
