Barco expands quiet projection range

Barco has unveiled an expansion of its RLM product line with the RLM-W8 projector. It is an 8,000 lumens, three-chip DLP projector with WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution.

In addition to offering low power consumption and decreased noise levels, it features geometry correction and edge blending capabilities. Barco’s RLM-W8 is well suited to the rental and staging markets, and uses an optional Barco stacking frame.

Early in 2010 Barco launched the RLM-W6 as its first Barco Elements three-chip DLP projector in a single-chip DLP price range. It offers a top-end image quality along with an environmentally conscious profile, by being ten times more silent and 33% less energy-consuming than competing products. As an extension of the RLM family, the RLM-W8 continues these themes, while adding more features that suit rental and staging environments.

While Barco’s RLM-W8 projector is primarily designed for the rental and staging market, it shares all features that make the RLM family a great fit into fixed installations with its smaller cousin. This renders the RLM-W8 an attractive three-chip DLP alternative to the top-end brightness projectors in the single-chip DLP range, for environments that need 8,000 lumens of brightness and three-chip DLP’s superior image quality.
