Barco’s OverView D projector, and digital streaming video solution based on Texas Instruments DLP, DSP technology

Barco and Texas Instruments demonstrated new Barco professional broadcast and digital streaming video products at IBC2003.

The new Barco products included the OverView D projection series, based on TI’s DLP technology and the Hydra Universal Multi Video Insertion Unit, based on TI’s high-performance, programmable TMS320C64x digital signal processor (DSP) core.

The Barco Hydra can simultaneously control up to 60 analog or digital inputs on one display. Hydra is operated via a standard Web browser and features advanced warnings and alarms. A single PC can control numerous networked units that jointly display hundreds of signals.

Barco’s OverView D series of projection modules offers features to enhance the comfort of video and broadcast operators in a 24/7 environment. The OverView D Series features TI’s latest high-contrast DLP technology for optimal brightness, contrast, color uniformity and wide viewing angles. Barco’s proprietary Optical Dimming technology ensures optimal light coupling between the lamp and the DLP chip and also compensates for lamp life, resulting in superior brightness and uniformity.
