Cinema projector Barco DP2K-8S

Small DLP Barco Alchemy Cinema projector for screens up to 8m (26ft).


  • By merging the projector and media server functionalities into a single projector module, the DP2K-8S Barco Alchemy projector is a full-fledged, DCI-compliant projector and media-server solution that includes on-board storage. Reducing the required hardware, it increases simplicity and reliability in the projection booth. And for additional reliability, the smart projector detects potential operational errors and warns users if, for instance, a scheduled show is missing assets or KDMs.
    Great in TMS environments, the projector operates stand-alone in single-screen applications. Thanks to the embedded Barco Web Commander user interface, shows can be created and scheduled remotely.
    The DP2K-8S projector is also available in a package with a third-party media server and it can be ordered without the Barco Alchemy module as well.
