Red State and the Barco DP2K-20c
Just used the Barco DP2K-20c to screen Kevin Smith’s Red State and both the film and the projector were OUTSTANDING! The great film aside, the Barco is a true big gun. It outputs a whopping 18,500 lumens on 3 x .98″ DMDs and the picture quality was STELLAR. The native resolution is 2048×1080 and it’ll do cinema flat (1998×1080) on which the movie was shot. It’s a big pig weighing 225 lbs and it can put out some heat (note the stove-pipe heat vent). The content was served up by the Doremi DCP-2000 which is quite a machine. It’s a hard drive based cinema server that will do 2d and 3d playback at 2k and 4k resolutions. It’s a whole different post for all the details on this device, suffice to say it performed flawlessly.
Kevin hung around and did a Q&A session for like 2 1/2 hours so it was fantastic to hear the genesis of the film and some behind-the-art shop talk. Word is it’ll be out in October- GO SEE THIS FILM.
