The Barco Loki Cinemascope offers the same Ultra HD enhancements as the Barco Loki projector, coupled with a high-capacity 2.37:1 aspect DLP engine. Its exceptional design allows a cinemascope film to be shown without requiring an anamorphic lens. The projector also provides Barco’s renowned single step image processing and low latency scaling technologies.
By basing Loki Cinemascope on a proven optical architecture, custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses, image quality is in a class of its own. Contrast is not only increased, but the details within the darkest parts of the image are more visible.
The Loki Cinemascope has a unique automatic aspect ratio detection function. It will look for 2.40:1 content and automatically scale the image to fit the 5,120 x 2,160 resolution and change back to 16:9 (3,840 x 2,160) if you have content in that format. It will also change aspect ratio when a 2.40:1 format movie has a menu outside the active picture frame. You can also switch manually between the different formats
Outstanding image quality also requires an exceptional light source. This is why we have packed Loki Cinemascope with a brand new dual laser engine. Alongside significantly improved image uniformity, lasers last longer than traditional projector lamps, are not as fragile and offer nearly instant on/off. Light life is up to 60,000 hours.
Loki Cinemascope has departed from a pure fan based cooling system to a liquid cooling PID regulation system, allowing Loki to operate in any angle.
