The Galaxy 4K series currently includes three models: 4K-12 (pictured), 4K-23, and 4K-32 – offering brightness levels of 12,000, 23,000 and 33,000 lumens, respectively, and a resolution of up to 4K (4096 x 2160) via the DVI inputs. The projectors benefit from the use of DLP technology said to offer improved brightness uniformity, long life and colour saturation.
A hermetically sealed optical engine prevents dust affecting the DLP 4K chip, while enhanced DMD cooling protects the system’s core components. Barco supports a number of stereoscopic technologies including active 3D stereo and active Infitec 3D stereo single-projector technology to display 3D content in 2K resolution, or a dual-projector passive Infitec 3D stereo setup for stereoscopic images in 4K resolution.
Barco projectors come with a patented convergence alignment tool said to require less effort to optimise convergence than other tools currently on the market.
