Barco to launch 75K-lumen large venue projector

Barco’s XDL laser projector range has been designed for large venues and events and will be launched to coincide with InfoComm 2018.

The XDL series offers native 4K resolution up to 120Hz as well as Rec. 2020 colour and crisp contrast.

The company believes the XDL range is inline with current market trend moving towards creating higher impact experiences. To meet the demand for increased colour performance and contrast, the XDL series offers brightness up to 75K lumens. This means professionals can play with bigger screens resulting in higher impact experiences while removing complexity from installations.

“With the XDL series, we have been able to combine the best of two worlds,” says Stefan Vandemaele, Barco product manager. “Extraordinary colours thanks to a laser light source known from our Flagship cinema projector and state-of-the-art image processing from our best-selling UDX events projector.”

XDL speeds up the installation process by reducing cable hassle and alignment time. The projectors provide lens shift of up to 100% allowing for versatility in installation. The images are matched to the projection surface with the on-board real-time warping and blending feature. And the modular design, improves serviceability.

In terms of total cost of ownership, companies that already own Barco XLD+ lenses will be able to reuse them on the XDL projectors. Leveraging a laser light source, image flicker and lamp-related costs and maintenance (such as lamp replacements) are eliminated. Compared to xenon projectors, the XDLs also consume 40% less power and ensure minimum downtime. In addition, the XDL input is already 8K-ready making it a future-proof investment.
