D e a r H o m e C i n e m a E n t h u s i a s t , We, at BARCO, have been active in Large Screen Projection some of the lesser passionate video enthusiasts, the true for more than 20 years. We were the first to use CRT Cinephile knows there is only one choice without any technology for high resolution graphics applications in the compromise. mid eighties; we were the first to use Amorphous Silicon LCD panels for professional projection applications in the CRT is also the technology of choice for many other high early nineties; we were the first to break the 10K Lumen end applications such as Flight Simulators, Virtual Reality barrier with a 3-Chip DLP projector in the late nineties; we Centers and 3D, . . . in which BARCO also has a leading were the first to provide full color video quality LED screens position. This makes BARCO by far the number one for outdoor use early this century . . . manufacturer of CRT projectors worldwide and guarantees BARCO’s support for this technology for many more Key to this continuing success was and is, finding the right years to come. technology that best fits a specific application. The BARCO Projection engineering team – totalling three hundred and New technologies come and go, but some stay the best based in strategic locations throughout Europe, the US choice for a very long period. Therefore, at BARCO Home and Asia - continuously evaluates new and emerging Cinema, we will continue to say: technologies and looks for their strengths and weaknesses. CRT For Ever ! When it comes to a Home Cinema projector, and parameters such as Black Level, Dynamic Range, compatibility with a wide range of standards without Tom Vanthuyne scaling artifacts, the technology of choice was, is and Division Manager remains CRT. Although its form factor might scare off BARCO Home Cinema BARCO Cine CRT liquid coupled assembly with color filtered C-element for the Red picture tube. 24 CARAT Liquid Expansion Tank BLACK Scheimpflug Adjustment Screws for Optical Projection Angle Adjustment Optical Coupling Fluid Red, Green or Blue Phosphor Layer Monochrome CRT Projection Tube Scheimpflug Correction 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.

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. PERFECT Spectrum of Cine CRT projectors with color filters COLOR REPRODUCTION Cine 9 Color Tr a c k i n g Measurement Spectrum with uncoated lenses Intensity Color Temperature (°Kelvin) Spectrum with color coated lenses NATURAL Cine 9 Average CRT characteristic 100% Black Wavelength (nanometer) Grey-Scale (% White) 100% White Accurate Color Primaries through Color Filtered and Corrected Lenses 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.
