Cinema projector Barco DP4K-23B

Bright 4K DLP Barco Alchemy Cinema projector for screens up to 23m (75ft).

  • The Barco DP4K-23B is a bright 4K cinema projector for screens up to 23m (75ft). Featuring TI's 1.38” DLP Cinema® chip, the DP4K-23B offers stunning 4K images with superb brightness and vibrant colors to ensure a razor-sharp movie experience on premium cinema screens. By merging the projector and media server functionalities into one projector module, the DP4K-23B Barco Alchemy projector is a full-fledged, DCI-compliant projector and media-server solution with on-board storage. Reducing the required hardware, it increases simplicity and reliability.

    The smart projector even detects potential operational errors and warns users in case of mishaps. Great in TMS environments, it operates stand-alone in single-screen applications. Thanks to the embedded Barco Web Commander user interface, shows can be created and scheduled remotely.

    Future-proof technology for an enthralling movie experience

    A single DP4K-23B Barco Alchemy projector can truly elevate the movie experience by enabling 4K 2D to be shown at 60 fps and 4K 3D images. It also shows uncompressed 4K 60 fps alternative content for crisp images.

    Low cost of ownership

    Geared with integrated Barco Alchemy technology that drives operational and maintenance costs down, the DP4K-23B offers superior image processing, pristine images and ultimate reliability at a low TCO. 

    The DP4K-23B 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.
