Barco Prometheus I Projector

Barco Prometheus I Projector

Created exclusively for ultra-high end home theatres and crafted using Barco's unique know-how as a market leader in professional cinema and post-production projection. Featuring the very latest 4K DLP chipsets from Texas Instruments and Barco's acclaimed Alchemy DCI media server, you can be assured that even the subtlest nuance of colour and detail will be faithfully reproduced on screen.

Cinema at home

As the opening credits roll, the audience is transported to an unexpected world of superior movie realism, embraced by the ultimate image quality and immersive sound. This compelling universe is created by Barco Residential’s Prometheus I.

High-end simplicity

Prometheus I combines media server functionalities with cinema processing electronics: Barco Alchemy Integrated Cinema Media Processor (ICMP) with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support The ICMP have two HDMI inputs to support Blu-ray, DVD’s, gaming consoles and other media devices. The projector offers advanced processing power combined with media server functionality, integrated playback and content management. Barco Alchemy enables showings of 4K 2D content at 60fps and 4K 3D at 30fps. Reducing the required hardware makes installation simpler and makes the system more reliable and easier to use.

4K at the highest level

Several new components enhance the Prometheus I. A dedicated 4K (4 x 3Gb/s) input board enables playback of native 4K content. Its wide colour gamut filter creates a wide gamut of perfect colours. And thanks to the specially made high-contrast lens, the Prometheus I displays images with much greater contrast. And we believe that, when it comes to light output, contrast and colour performance, the Prometheus I performs at the absolute highest level.
