Barco unveils 12K projector for live events
Barco has expanded its projector portfolio with a single-chip DLP projector producing 12,000 lumens of brightness.
It is being aimed at usage in medium-sized medium-sized venues & live events, and its optional rental frame makes it suitable for the rental and staging market as well.
The RLS-W12 offers WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution, extended warping and blending, and HDBaseT technology to provide video over a single Cat 5 cable.
The projector will be commercially available from December 2014 onwards.
Featuring both HDBaseT and BarcoLink technology, the RLS-W12 supports point-to-point transmission of video signals – up to WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) at 60 Hz – from source to projector, over distances of more than 70 metres, via a single Cat 5 cable or a single BNC cable.
The RLS-W12 features achieves its 12,000 center lumens with twin 465W NSH lamps, and it operates at full brightness on a voltage range of 110V - 240V, so that users who are based in the US or Japan won’t require an extra adaptor to use it.
The RLS-W12 can be easily controlled in multiple ways: via the new wired or wireless remote control, the projector control app for Android and iOS devices, and the Barco Projector Toolset software.
