Barco to Debut HDF-W30 FLEX 30,000 Lumen Xenon Projector at ISE

barco-flex-0215Barco is expanding its projector portfolio for events and large venues with a three-chip DLP that’s spec’d at 30,000 lumens. The WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution HDF-W30 FLEX shares its modular design, preview mode, and ImagePRO scaling with the other HDX, HDF, and HDQ product family members and will ship in April.

The 3-chip DLP projector uses a single Xenon lamp for illumination and it’s equipped with Barco’s ImagePRO technology for scaling. Another benefit is that it offers FLEX brightness, as standard, so rental companies have the flexibility to tune the projector’s brightness to a specific show – from 18,000 to 30,000 lumens in incremental steps of 2,000 lumens.

Barco’s HDX, HDF and HDQ projector ranges are considered rugged projectors in designed and their modular design makes them easy to install and service. Equipped with rental frames, the projectors can easily be stacked or rigged. Just like the RLM, HDX, HDF and FLM projector families, the HDF-W30 FLEX uses the TLD lens suite, so there’s no need for rental companies to replace their existing lens fleet. The projectors all offer extended warping and blending, DMX-512 control, native 3G HDSDI/SDI input, and BarcoLink for progressive WUXGA 50/59.94/60 Hz signal distribution over a single BNC coax cable.

And, it’s compatible with Barco’s Moving Mirror System (MMS-100 or MMS-200) system. Full specs are here.
