Barco debuts new technology for rear projection
Barco, a provider of professional display and visualization technology, has announced its next-generation video wall displays, featuring proprietary sensor technology that maintain brightness and color stability over time and across the entire display.
The new Sense6 technology is an active, sensor-based system that analyzes what the operator sees by measuring the output of the video wall rather than a specific optical component of the projector system. The technology results in equal brightness, color, contrast and midtones for all cubes that compose the video wall.
Video wall products by Barco are based on Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology and feature built-in lamp and controller redundancy to support 24/7 mission-critical applications.
The new Barco OV-D2 series include video wall modules ranging from 50in to 120in and resolutions from XGA to SXGA+, stackable to any size and resolution, curved or straight. It offers new brighter lamps with longer lifetimes, an air-bearing color wheel with longer lifetime, and a sealed off engine. These all contribute to a video wall that requires less maintenance.
The OV-D2 series comes with Barco Wall Control Manager, a software package that continuously supports worry-free operation of the video wall over the network. Second level maintenance can be done by Web access to each projection cube by a standard Web browser.
