Barco Expands Family of LED Video Walls with New Industry-Standard Series
Barco Electronic Systems Pvt. Ltd. (Business Wire India)
Barco, a leader in control room visualization solutions, introduces the new OverView M series of LED-lit rear-projection video walls. This new series joins the existing OverView O series, allowing Barco to offer every customer the video wall solution that best suits his or her needs. The first range of OverView M video wall cubes to hit the market are the 4:3 aspect ratio versions, available with screen diagonals of 60”, 67” and 80”. Widescreen models will become available as well.
With the OverView M series, Barco answers the market’s call for industry-standard video walls with good color reliability, image quality, and brightness. This makes this new series the standard video walls for demanding small- to medium-sized control rooms. The series benefits from the many advantages of LED lighting, including long lifetime, low power consumption, and great uptime.
Barco innovations to guarantee quality
Barco’s unique liquid cooling system also greatly reduces the temperature of the LEDs, resulting in a significantly longer LED lifetime. Furthermore, the Sense5 automatic white point and full color calibration system ensures uniformity of color and brightness levels. This system works with an advanced color sensor that continuously measures the primary color levels of the entire wall, and adjusts as necessary.
Expanding the OverView family
“The introduction of the OverView M series is a very important addition to Barco’s control room solutions offering,” says Peter Baumgärtner, Product Manager Control Rooms at Barco. “It not only gives our control room designers and partners a new competitive edge when proposing the most suitable video wall to customers, but it also allows a larger market to benefit from the well-known Barco quality.”
A solution for any video wall need
“Barco’s video wall offering to the control room market now consists of two distinct segments: the OverView M and the OverView O series,” adds Suchit Rout, Market Development Manager Control Rooms at Barco. “The new OverView M series aims at standard, demanding control rooms. The OverView O series, available in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, are the video walls of choice for applications that need full redundancy of both the LEDs and the drivers.” This means that there is no single point of failure for critical components, guaranteeing 24/7 operation without a minute of interruption. Barco’s top segment also features all rear-projection innovations to ensure premium image quality, including full spectrum calibration, ultra brightness, seamless canvas and 3D readiness. Furthermore, the OverView O series can be delivered with a front access option in the 16:9 versions, eliminating the need for a rear maintenance area.
