One way Barco is catapulting people off their couches and back into the theaters in an era where home entertainment systems reign supreme is Barco Escape: a multi-screen panoramic movie format introduced by Barco nearly two years ago and taking the movie industry by storm.
Todd Hoddick, CEO of Barco Escape, describes how this new phenomenon is enticing movie fans to visit the cinema for an innovative and thrilling experience. A jewel in the crown of CinemaBarco, Barco Escape and three other next-generation cinema technologies can be experienced at the new Regal L.A. LIVE: A Barco Innovation Center, located in Los Angeles, California.
Barco Escape - the ultimate, immersive cinema experience

Barco Laser Projection
Flagship Laser – differentiate your PLF experience
As the most cost-effective solution for PLF and large screens, Barco Flagship Laser can help increase theater revenues, thanks to higher ticket prices and greater attendance. And, exhibitors enjoy improved operational efficiency with this lamp-less solution!
Laser Phosphor – supreme economy and image quality rolled into one
Our new DP2K-20CLP is the industry’s first 18,000-lumen laser phosphor projector for cinema, featuring 3X more brightness than any other offering on the market. Barco’s laser phosphor projectors offer considerable cost savings and lower maintenance than Xenon models.
Barco Lobby Experience - captivating moviegoers the moment they step through the doors
Barco’s innovative Lobby Experience is a digital display system that envelops moviegoers with immersive storytelling and offers revenue-generating opportunities. Bring your lobby to life with animated box office, concessions and menu boards, movie posters, and multi-screen movie trailer presentations.
Immersive Sound – the perfect complement to a premium visual movie experience
Barco combines the best characteristics of object-based technology from Iosono with the Barco Auro 11.1 immersive sound format. The result: the most natural, acoustically perfect representation of standardized immersive sound – at up to half the typical cost.
The new venture has transformed Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE, owned by AEG - one of the world’s largest sports and entertainment presenters - into a one-of-a kind creative hub for all of Barco’s cutting-edge cinema technology.
