Barco Digital Cinema Integrates QUALCOMM QDEC 1000 Decoder into D-CineStar ProjectorsSecurity with Real-Time Decoding/Decryption
The QUALCOMM QDEC 1000 decoder is an option available in all current Barco D-CineStar projectors. Barco and QUALCOMM began an engineering collaboration earlier this year that resulted in this integration of an internal decoder in the D-CineStar projector line.
"This is a major step forward toward the widespread industry acceptance of digital cinema," said Harry Mathias, Director of Barco Digital Cinema, America. "Barco Digital Cinema is very optimistic about what this means to the economic realities of the cinema exhibition industry. The integration of the QDEC 1000 decoder within the Barco projector reassures the studios that their content is secure. The ease of integration and secure architecture paves the way for widespread adoption of this technology."
With QUALCOMMs QDEC 1000 decoder integrated into Barcos cinema-quality projectors, images are decoded and decrypted via a single chip within the digital cinema projector, providing enhanced security and theft protection. The decoder module implements QUALCOMMs ABSolute image compression technology, a high-resolution technology developed for the demanding requirements of digital cinema and other applications. The QDEC 1000 decoder is capable of outputting image resolutions of 2560 x 1080 pixels, which is higher than high-definition resolution, at full 10-bit 4:4:4 color component sampling.
