Barco introduces 4K DLP projectors for VR applications

Barco has released its Galaxy 4K series projectors, three-chip DLP models aimed at the virtual reality (VR) market.

The projectors are designed for 2D and 3D applications. The three models available have a resolution of up to 4K (4096x2160) on the DVI inputs and brightness levels of 12,000, 23,000 or 33,000 lumens.

The enhanced DMD cooling protects the system's core components from overheating, which extends their lifetime. The projectors have a patented convergence alignment tool and the 12-bit input capability allows more details in black and grey scales when running the unit at 2K sources.
