DP4K-P

The DP4K-P postproduction projector is the world’s first 4K DLP projector that meets the high-performance demands for postproduction, archiving, restoration and 4K color grading.

Ultimate image quality
To respond to the highly specialized needs of postproduction houses, the DK4K-P has been enhanced with several new components. It is equipped with a dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board which enables playback of native 4K content. Its wide color gamut filter creates a wide gamut for accurate color matching. And thanks to its high-contrast lens, the DP4K-P displays images with improved contrast.

Dedicated software for postproduction
What’s more, the DP4K-P projector is bundled with a redesigned version of the Barco Communicator software. The overall look and feel of the Communicator interface is adapted to the dark environment in which it is used. Its intuitive menu structure is quick to navigate and all of the functionalities are conveniently bundled into a single section, which eliminates the need for extra training or additional tools. The dedicated software offers a powerful input analysis and enables color correction per eye for 3D content.

Powerful input analysis
When combined with the quad 3Gb/s input board, the Communicator software is turned into a powerful input analysis tool that enables you to visualize the MSB and LSB via a bit-depth analysis of the different inputs. You can also easily compare inputs through the split-screen analysis (diagonal, vertical, side-by-side and checker board). Thanks to these new features, you can do your job with an unprecedented level of accuracy.
