Barco has worked hand-in-hand with its end users to create its 5-member UDX line of compact, high-brightness laser phosphor projectors. According to Carl Rijsbrack, VP events and proAV at Barco, ‘we involved our customers closely during the development of UDX to focus on their needs and challenges. The result is a projector platform that allows rental houses and venue owners to deliver exceptional audience experiences while reducing installation time and cost.’
With its electronics powered by the Pulse 4K engine, the modular, 3-chip DLP projectors can deliver 4K UHD resolution images and up to 32,000 lumens. The family can also display native 4K UHD, WQXGA, WUXGA and UXGA content, while the FLEX² feature allows users to tune and lock projector brightness in 1,000-lumen incremental steps and resolution to a specific show. The manufacturer also states the family ‘offers the widest colour spectrum in the industry’ and ‘outperforms the Rec. 709 colour space’.
In other news, the Belgian manufacturer has announced a partnership with Vogel’s to ensure that Barco UniSee LCD videowalls are compatible with Vogel’s Universal videowall solutions. Thanks to a purpose-designed adapter, the screen can now be used with the mount, allowing ceiling, floor or free-standing mounting.
