About Athena

Barco Athena brings DCI technology home to smaller spaces. As the projection goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature, her compact footprint and quiet operation are especially suited to smaller dedicated home cinemas that desire image perfection and DCI compatibility.

Cinema at home

As the opening credits roll, the audience is transported to an unexpected world of superior movie realism, embraced by the ultimate image quality and immersive sound. This compelling universe is created by Barco Residential’s Athena.

Compact & Rugged

The largest digital cinema projector portfolio for the residential market in the world is proud to present its latest family member; Athena. The most compact rugged DCI projector we have, whilst twice as silent as the quietest DCI projector currently on the market. Trademark Barco quality and modularity, now also for the smaller residential screens.

High-end simplicity

Athena combines media server functionalities with cinema processing electronics, that mean the complete install will have fewer boxes, leading to greater reliablity and ease-of-use. The Alchemy module combines the functionalities of an Integrated Cinema Processor (ICP) and media server into one single board and forms the core of the Barco Alchemy cinema at home projectors.

Frame Rate

Frame rates beyond the 24 fps cinema standard can improve image quality, particularly on fast-moving scenes and camera pans, by reducing motion blur artifacts. This effect is even more apparent on 3D and 4K content. Higher frame rates offer filmmakers an additional creative tool.
