The Barco DP4K-60L laser projector has been selected to be installed at a cinema in Denmark.

Digital cinema pioneer Barco's device was picked for the main premium large format (PLF) screen of Nordic entertainment company Nordisk Film Biografer's new multiplex in the Field shopping and entertainment centre in Copenhagen.

The new cinema is set to open in August and the Field is due to become one of the largest shopping centres in Scandinavia when it is completed.

Wim Buyens, head of entertainment at Barco, explained that the Barco DP4K-60L is the world’s brightest cinema projector.

He pointed out that it also features "unprecedented" 4K image quality, as well as contrast ratios that "result in laser-sharp 2D and 3D images".

Mr Buyens added: "What’s more, the built-in Barco Alchemy Intelligent Cinema Media Processor combines media server, cinema processing, storage and security functions in a single, on-board module.

"The module is the first on the market to enable the projection of 4K content at 60 fps and show 3D movies in full 4K resolution with only one projector."

Lars Jørgensen, executive country manager at Nordisk Film Biografer, said the partnership with Barco at the Field complex is being built on a "shared love of cinema".
