The laser experts at Power Technology have partnered with DigiCine, developers of DCI Compliant media servers, to demonstrate the power of upgrading Series 1 and Series 2 projectors to meet the demanding needs of exhibitors and movie attendees. By combining an RGB laser upgrade system with a DigiCine media server, the duo has upgraded a Barco DPK 2000 with brighter, more vivid colors for DCI compliant images and the ability to play the latest DCP formats. This is the first ever demonstration of its kind. The demonstration will be held throughout CinemaCon in the Sorrento Room at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

“This partnership makes perfect sense for CinemaCon attendees. With the digital upgrade cycle complete, not every exhibitor is ready to pay for a new laser system. Luckily, they don’t have to. With Power Technology lasers and DigiCine media servers, exhibitors can get new life out of the projectors they’ve already paid for,” said Walter Burgess, Vice President of Engineering and Sales for Power Technology, Inc.

“There are approximately 17,000 plus Series 1 projectors in the field today and now exhibitors have a real alternative to the projector manufacturer’s replacement strategy. So, if you’re an exhibitor and have Series 1 or 2 projectors, come see the demonstration and let us show you how to save money and extend the life of your projector with our state of the art media player,” added Karl Anderson, CEO of DigiCine.
