HOME CINEMA PAR EXCELLENCE


CineVERSUM BLACKWING LT


My Quest for Perfection

For the past 20 years, Cineversum has been a reputed worldwide leader and pioneer in the field of private Home Cinema videoprojection. Originally created and developped by Barco, the famous manufacturer which provides Cinema equipment to Hollywood’s leading film studios and commercial theatres worldwide, the Cineversum staff will leave no stone unturned on its path to perfection. As a projection user and afficionado myself, I make no concession and expect my own installation to give me the best possible result, may I be watching my national football team or my favourite movie. Our philosophy at Cineversum is to provide you with a complete, adequate and high-end solution whatever your needs. From the plug-and-play projector to the most sophisticated custom installation, we and our Cineversum Partners will always propose you a taylor-made association of products that will get the best out of your own configuration.

Jean-Claude Younes CEO of Cineversum


Cineversum Home Cinema Concept

Since 20 years, Cineversum has been synonymous of high-quality video products. Adapting the most advanced and sophisticated technologies of the professional cinema industry to exclusive home users. Cineversum, brand name of the Home Cinema activity of Barco, was until recently part of the Media & Entertainment division. As Digital Cinema is about to develop in the next couple of years, Barco’s board decided to fully focus on this professional visualisation market and consequently entrusted industry-veteran Jean-Claude Younes to bring Cineversum to a higher level. More than a brand, Cineversum is a concept. Put simply, Cineversum is Home Cinema par Excellence.


CineVERSUM BLACKWING TWO


The eternal Elegance of France

Harmony between form and function, the ideal between minimalism, futurism and refinement and the use of pure materials such as aluminium and steel reflect the Cineversum’s dedication to absolute product integrity. With its subtle shapes and purity of form, the Cineversum range brings you the timelessness and elegance of our City of Lights, Paris. In our quest for the perfect design, we turned to our nearby environment for inspiration. The perfect symmetry of a merry-go-round. The gracious curve of the Montmartre Sacré-Coeur. The stark silhouette of the Louvre Pyramid. Inspired by these Parisian landmarks, the Cineversum range was born. In the flawless representation of each tiny detail and the life-like reproduction of colour we found our ultimate goal : perfection in home cinema.


Projector Jewellers

We at Cineversum give an extreme attention to details. Every single unit is carefully checked and pre-calibrated individually. Each projector is tuned for top performance and operationnally life tested in the Cineversum laboratory. Its unique characteristics are kept in a Manufacturing Identification File. The finest measurement equipement used for our projectors is used during both the manufacturing and calibration/alignment process in the laboratory, in order to achieve the best possible projected picture out-of-the box and a long-term trouble-free operation. But eventually, there is no robot than we trust more than the human being, and his delicate sensitiveness. As said Frederic Laurenti - chief calibrator for more than 20 years : «in the end of the production process, I always submit the projector to the most accurate testing, the ultimate judge, something that no instrument or computer could challenge, my human eye...»


Integrated Technology

France is not only the homeland of luxurious jewelry, tasty wine and Parisian gastronomy. On top of a wide array of industrial strengths amply demonstrated by high-speed trains TGV, Formula One racing cars, the Ariane rocket and Airbus superjumbos - France is at the cutting edge of technological research and innovation. The Cineversum technicians and dealers have been involved in this industry from its very beginning. Their long experience with the most sophisticated CRT installations, might it be for home cinema or for professional applications is a major asset when it comes to chosing and integrating the newest technologies.

To fully use the projector resolution, the active frame is stretched vertically. Doing so, makes every pixel active and the brightness level is greatly enhanced.

Black bars are displayed by inactive pixels when watching a movie using a 16:9 format screen. They imply a consequent loss of the available resolution.

In THEATRE Mode, the Anamorphic Lens is moved in front of the projector beam, just like in commercial theatres, in order to magnify the aspect ratio of the picture back to the original 2.35:1 movie format. The obtained picture is extremely detailed and being projected into a wider format, it allows the use of bigger screens.
