Barco is expanding its F-Series projection portfolio for the ProAV market with a new rugged laser phosphor model. The F70 projector line has two models set for launch at ISE 2017 including a 4K UHD vision (3840×2160) and a WUXGA version (1920×1200) and up to 8,000 lumens. The F70 will be shipping starting in Q2 2017.
The F70 projector is designed for fixed installation in large continuously-running venues like museums, theme parks, auditoriums, and science centers. Barco says the line uses their Constant Light Output (CLOTM) functionality that they claim guarantees constant brightness and color for a long time span. Just like for the Barco F90 projectors, Barco Pulse processing is the beating heart of the F70. In addition to an intuitive user interface, Barco Pulse’s unique Single Step Processing (SSPTM) technology enables the F70 projector to achieve 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution in only one step. The F70’s laser phosphor light source provides a long lifetime of up to 60,000 hours and eliminates the need for lamp replacements.
