Barco Aims New 30K Lumen Laser-Phosphor at Rental Market

barco-hdf-0316Barco has expanding its HDF projector portfolio for large venues and events with a three-chip DLP, 30,000-lumen model in WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution. Dubbed the HDF-W30LP FLEX projector, it features a laser-phosphor light source spec’d to last over 30,000 hours. Spec’d at 1900:1 contrast ratio with 90 percent uniformity, the projector includes horizontal and vertical edge blending and an optical lens shift at V: -30% to +120% / H: -40% to +40% on zoom lenses (memorized). Inputs include DVI-I, SDI and BarcoLink.

Reducing operating costs by more than 50 percent compared to a lamp-based projector, the HDF-W30LP FLEX enables customers to increase up-time while driving installation, service, and maintenance costs down. Thanks to its laser phosphor light source and advanced cooling design, this new projector provides up to 30,000 hours of maintenance-free operating time — resulting in considerable cost-savings on maintenance and consumables.

Running in any orientation, the HDF-W30LP FLEX offers users flexibility in projector location as users to tune and lock their projector’s light output to a specific application, from 10,000 to 30,000 lumens in incremental steps. The cooling unit can be positioned up to eight meters (26 feet) away from the projector, so it can be easily attached to a wall or mounted in a truss.
