Barco launches 4k DLP laser phosphor unit

Barco F90 projector

Barco has launched the F90 series, a portfolio of DLP laser phosphor projectors for the pro AV and events market.

The laser phosphor light source units offer up to 13,000 lumens brightness with the first two models launched at ISE 2016 offering 4K UHD and WUXGA native resolution. The WUXGA F90-W13 will be shipping from early quarter three 2016 and the 4K UHD F90-4K13 will be commercially available from quarter four 2016.

The solid-state laser-phosphor light source combined with advanced cooling design is claimed to provide up to 40,000 hours operating time without need for lamp changes and virtually maintenance-free.

F90-4K13 units project more than 8 million pixels on screen – with a high level of detail, and highly saturated colours that meet the Rec. 709 colour space.

Projectors can run in any orientation and high-resolution Barco FLD and FLD+ lenses – ranging from ultra-short throw (0.28:1) to long throw (9.75:1) – can accommodate multiple projector configurations. The lenses are compatible with the Barco F32 and F35 projectors.

Barco is exhibiting at the ISE trade show, RAI Amsterdam, the Netherlands, February 9 to 12 inHall 11, booth F100.
