Barco is expanding its LED portfolio. Last year, Barco claimed a renewed focus in high-res LED technology with the launch of the premium XT series and the announcement of its strategic partnership with Chinese LED manufacturer Unilumin. Today the company is introducing an extended offering with five new models addressing a variety of indoor LED applications.
Barco’s XT series narrow pixel pitch LED tiles are specifically designed as high-end LEDs. Barco says they have mechanically optimized the Unilumin hardware for seamless viewing and added a proprietary LED image processing solution, Infinipix, to the LEDs.
While the new XT-E and XT-HB are similar, they are set to meet the variable needs in Barco’s targeted core segments, i.e. control rooms, television studios, meeting rooms and 3D visualization. The entry-level platform XT-E, offering tiles with 1.2, 1.5 and 1.9mm pixel pitch, allows LED projects that don’t require high brightness or advanced features to get access to the valued Barco products with a cost-effective solution. This entry-level range is still designed according to the consistent Barco quality levels with careful selection of alternative LEDs.
With brightness levels up to 1500 nits, the XT-HB brings high-brightness LED to those applications in full daylight and environments with high amount of ambient light. Introducing two models with higher pixel pitches, i.e. XT1.9-HB and XT2.5-HB, this series is also ideally suited for viewing from longer distances and set-ups where narrower pixel pitches are nonessential.
The new LED family will be at ISE 2020 (Hall 12, booth F120) or you can see them here.
