The presentation of Freya, the newest member of the Barco Residential projectors family, was held by Apex-Tech UK in London on Thursday, 18th November.
This special event took place in Mondrian Hotel, Shoreditch London. This exclusive hotel hosts an impressive screening room which is already fitted with a Barco Residential Prometheus 1 DCI projector; 5 meter wide Display Technologies Frontier projection screen to ensure a sharp and accurate image and a TPI speaker system for dynamic and engaging audio.
The Freya is a member of the Barco Residential Cinema at Home family. These projectors are built on the same commercial platforms as can be found in some 55% of commercial cinemas worldwide but optimised and enhanced for smaller screens with maximum contrast and support for HDR and 3D video.
For the launch, we ensured that the worlds best projector would be assisted by the worlds best video processor – the MadVR Envy Extreme. With advanced features for contrast recovery, tone mapping and colour space matching we were able to show guests exactly what the ultimate image looks like and how to deliver it.
Presentations lasted all day in the relaxed atmosphere of the screening room. All guests were able to enjoy themselves with refreshments provided and many sessions were extended with requests to show our guests favourite scenes.
Typical feedback on the Freya projector included:
– perfect uniformity of the image across entire screen
– incredible colour accuracy and range
– impressive contrast in HDR scenes
– high sharpness and image clarity easily visible in fast moving and still scenes
