Barco has announced that its latest award-winning 4K 6P laser-illuminated projectors are now shipping around the world.
Cinemark, Kinepolis and Santikos are among those to have already bought Barco's new projectors, which have also been fitted at top theatre chains throughout China, Latin America and Europe.
The laser-illuminated projector has also won awards such as the prestigious Beijing International Radio, TV & Film Equipment Exhibition award and the Lumiere Technology and New Product award from the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society.
Todd Hoddick, vice-president of global entertainment for Barco, said: "When we developed our laser projector, we knew immediately that Barco was setting a new standard for image quality in the cinema industry."
He added that Barco's latest 4K 6P laser-illuminated projectors offer users "an unparalleled moviegoing experience elevating the immersive realism of motion pictures".
Barco has been breaking new ground with the device, which is the only RGB laser projector to achieve DCI compliance and is also the most compact 60,000-lumen projector available.
The company also claims that it is the simplest and only fully integrated 6P solution for cinema, as well as the first of its kind that is capable of showing 4K content at 60 fps and 3D movies in full 4K resolution.
Barco is currently preparing to showcase its new product CinemaBarco at ShowEast this week. Mr Hoddick said Barco's goal is to "champion a new era in motion picture entertainment".
