195 Piccadilly, the home of BAFTA, is installing a state of the art Barco DP2K-32B digital cinema projector this month – a record breaking piece of technology which will be the first of its kind in the capital.
Recognised as officially the brightest digital cinema projector on the planet by the Guinness Book of Records, the projector will provide a captivating and immersive cinema experience, particularly with 3D film.
As such, the 227 seat Princess Anne Theatre at 195 Piccadilly will boast the best 3D experience of any venue or cinema in London.
And now for the science bit: with a measured and validated record brightness of over 43,000 centre lumens in colour-calibrated mode, the record-holding Barco DP2K-32B is able to perfectly project 3D content even on the largest screens, making it ideal for presentations, product launches, film previews and any kind of event requiring a visual element.
The projector is being fitted in the second week of April and will be available from the 22 April onwards.
Jenny Bones, Head of Commercial Events at 195 Piccadilly comments: “As a venue closely connected with the technology and film industry, it’s fantastic to now have this equipment to offer as part of meetings, events and even private celebrations and weddings. As only ultra-bright projectors can guarantee an optimal viewing experience, we’ve already had a great interest from prospective clients, who recognise that we now officially offer the best screening facilities in London”.
The Princess Anne Theatre can be combined with a number of other event spaces at 195 Piccadilly including a board room, the intimate Run Run Shaw screening room and the David Lean Room.
