State-of-the-Art Optical System
CRT technology is an emissive technology (light is
emitted by the display itself), while all other
currently available projection technologies are
transmissive (light from a projection lamp shines
on or through the image generating
components). This makes CRT projectors able to
display the most absolute levels of black as no
extraneous light (aka light spill) washes out the
black level.
Apart from an absolute black level, emissive
technology and CRT technology in particular is
also capable of producing a very high peak in
brightness over a short period (or on a small part
of the total display area), giving it an exceptional
dynamic range.
As a result the liquid coupled CRT / lens assembly
of the Cine 9 delivers a Contrast Ratio of over 30
000 to 1, more than 10 times the contrast ratio of
even the best single lens projector available
today as well as in the foreseeable future.

Ultra Low Fan Noise Level Brings Out
Every Soundtrack Detail
Through dedicated research & development,
specially selected fans are used to keep noise levels
to an absolute minimum (<30dB in typical
installation at viewer’s position).
Electronic compensations to reduce overall heat
production are combined with internal mechanical
adaptations for laminar airflow, which results in an
exceptionally low noise level.
Even the smallest soundtrack details remain
perfectly audible.
Ultra-high Picture Resolution
A focused electron beam generates each picture of
the 3 primary color CRTs, delivering the sharpest
possible image. Because of its analog nature, a CRT
projector is the only type of video projection
technology that is virtually transparent to the
images that it displays. The projected result is a
perfect reproduction of the original source material,
unbroken by a modulation matrix structure (pixel
structure) or colored dot patterns. It's easy to see
why Hollywood filmmakers and video enthusiasts all
over the world recognize CRT projectors as
the ultimate video reproduction technology.

Accurate Color Primaries through Color

Perfect Colors through Unique
Grey-Scale Tracking
Color Correction and Color Filtering are combined
on the optical components of the BARCO Cine CRT
projectors to guarantee the most accurate color
reproduction.
To guarantee perfect color reproduction both in
dark and bright scenes, the RGB amplifiers are
precisely tuned to give the same result over the
entire range from 0% White (Black) up to 100%
White. This results in unique grey-scale
uniformity.
Non-Color Corrected lenses have a different
magnification factor for light with different
wavelengths. As the primary colors of the
CRTs - even when being monochrome - consist of
a range of light with different wavelengths, this
results in unsharp images (Color Astigmatism). The
Color Corrected lenses of the Cine CRT projectors
overcome this problem and assure a closer
converged projection result.
Color Filtered lenses improve the color purity and
saturation of the projected image. They have a
special coating that filters the light from the CRT
and brings the color coordinates of the primary
colors closer to the broadcast standard as
prescribed by the EBU/CIE associations.
Ultra high precision
measurement used during
manufactering and
precalibration at the
factory
The primary colors (Red, Green, Blue), projected by the CRT projectors,
closely match the standards as described in the CIE chromaticity
diagram by world leading broadcast associations.
INSTALLATION
AND
CALIBRATION
Dealers carrying the BARCO CRT Dealer Certificate are trained
for installation and fine tuning of CRT based projectors on a
regular basis
To achieve the best possible projected pictures and a longterm trouble-free operation, a precise installation and
calibration by an experienced dealer or installer (e.g. an ISF
trained technician) is required. BARCO only supplies its
Cine CRT projection equipment through a limited network
of carefully selected and highly skilled dealers all over the
world. These dealers are trained to align and calibrate all
the video components within the complete installation to
give you a true video reference result that only a CRT
projector is capable of delivering.
A qualified installer uses precise measurement and alignment equipment for
the fine-tuning and calibration of a CRT projector installation at home.
EXTREME TECHNOLOGY FOR THE PERFECT IMAGE
Superb Electromagnetic Focus
through Triangular Spot Nullifying™
(TSN)
Larger CRT tubes result in
larger phosphor surfaces
and consequently
increased general
brightness and sharper
projected images
Triangular beam spot
(often occurring in the
screen corners) turns into
a perfectly round spot
through TSN.
Digitally controlled 6-pole magnets offer
precise electron beam correction (perfect
round shape of the beam) from corner to
corner, resulting in ultra sharp images across
the entire screen.
CRT Projection as Large Screen Reference Display in
Video Editing & Recording Studios Worldwide.
CRT projectors in general and the Cine 9 in particular are
simply unbeatable in terms of color accuracy, pure black
level, contrast ratio and image resolution. These and many
other typical CRT projection advantages make CRT the
preferred technology for use in reference displays (monitor
or projector) in professional video editing and recording
studios all over the world. The display quality of the Cine 9
allows video engineers to accurately evaluate the transfer
and MPEG2 decoding quality of e.g. DVD sources.
Each Cine 9 is individually pre-calibrated for top performance
and operationally life tested at the BARCO factory. Its unique
characteristics are kept in an individual Manufacturing
Identification Certificate that comes with each Cine 9. The
finest measurement equipement used for our CRT projectors,
built to military specifications, is used during both the
manufacturing and calibration/alignment process in the
factory.
