Barco Intros Narrow-Bezel LCD Displays

Barco just announced a new product in its super-narrow bezel LCD video wall portfolio, the OverView HVD5521. Designed for use in control rooms, the HVD features some unique innovations that boost reliability, lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and minimize maintenance needs.

The new OverView HVD5521 now joins this portfolio, with a screen diagonal of 55” and a brightness of 700 cd/m². Its narrow total bezel width of only 1.8 millimeters (measured between screens) enhances the visual consistency of the video wall.

To counter the classic problem with color and brightness level shifts in LCD video walls, Barco says the new line has something they are calling Sense X, automatic color and brightness calibration system based on integrated color sensors. This technology automatically balances the video wall at all times, eliminating the need for expensive and time-consuming manual calibration.

In addition, an optional redundant external power supply automatically switches to a new unit if one should fail, eliminating downtime due to power supply failure. And because the power supply is located remotely, its maintenance can be performed without disturbing operations. The OverView HVD5521 will be at the Barco booth at ISE (Amsterdam, 7-10 February) and here are the tech specs.
