Barco outfits virtual reality exhibits and all movie screenings at Sundance Film Festival
Posted on Tuesday, January 26, 2016
Barco outfits virtual reality exhibits and all movie screenings at Sundance Film Festival Once again, Barco is bringing to life several virtual reality and art installations at the New Frontier exhibition at Sundance with its large venue projectors and presentation switchers. The world’s largest independent film festival also uses Barco digital cinema projectors in all 23 of its movie theater venues for official screenings.

For the third year, SFF organizers selected Barco projectors because of their high brightness and photo-realistic color image presentation, in addition to an ideal combination of size, weight and power, which facilitates efficient installation and operation.

“Innovation is something that New Frontier and the Sundance Film Festival continually seek out, with a strong desire to advance, evolve and always be on the leading edge,” comments Jamie McMurry, Producer and Designer for Sundance Film festival. “We feel that Barco shares that desire and is not only a committed partner in the industry, but also a collaborator in supporting artists and developers in the advancement of visual storytelling.”

In addition to the awards and closing night events, Barco projectors will be used in numerous exhibits, including:
Treachery of Sanctuary
The Leviathan Project
Double Conscience
Inextinguishable Fire

The Holo-Cinema offers a rare look at the innovations in immersive entertainment being developed inside ILMxLAB—an advanced media lab and development group that is a collaboration between Lucasfilm Story Group, Industrial Light & Magic, and Skywalker Sound. This new scenic design and experience theater allows participants to step inside iconic story moments, walk around the performing characters, and explore worlds as they portal inside a fully immersive media environment.

The Sundance Film Festival is occurring now through January 31 in Park City, Utah.
