Barco brought its new XDS-1000 external display management system to NAB. This is a manager for multiple projectors and sources used for a display wall. They also demonstrated how users can do collaboration and real-time video conferencing with Barco’s new iCon H250 single-chip DLP, native HD (1920×1080) projector.
What makes these products unusual is they each have onboard computers that can store data locally and can also connect to the network and act like any other networked computer. So they can pull data either from the local drive or from the server.
The iCon H250 is specified at 2500 ANSI lumens, includes TI’s BrilliantColor technology, and has advanced picture-in-picture functionality (it uses Windows XP so basically, you can project, re-position, and re-size different windows, just as with the original iCon).
