Barco just launched the second generation of its UniSee 500 LCD video wall system aimed at control rooms, corporate lobbies, meeting rooms and television studios. The Barco UniSee LCD video wall platform claims the world’s smallest optical seam and almost eliminates the “grids” that traditionally interrupt content shown on LCD video walls. The platform was completely redesigned with image quality, installation precision, ease-of-servicing and reliability in critical environments as the top-focuses; along with adding Sense X algorithms to improve both intra-tile and overall inter-tile uniformity.
According to Barco, with an improved color performance under wider viewing angles, hte UniSee 500 is now even more suited for use in environments where a frontal viewing is not the de facto case. In addition, by further improving the ease of deployment and serviceability, it becomes easier for partners to get the video wall up and running after installation. And, a new Barco Video Wall Management Suite solution allows resellers and managed service providers to monitor and manage the complete installed base of video walls from a central location. This solution will come free of charge during the warranty period and can be expanded with a service contract or subscription offer.
Barco says the new version of Barco UniSee 500 excels in eco design and succeeded in obtaining the Barco Eco Product label, following Barco’s ISO14021 compliant eco-scoring methodology. The scoring not only focuses on energy consumption but also use of materials, packaging & logistics and end-of-life management, this methodology really considers all aspects of eco-friendly design. For the new Barco UniSee 500, both simplified logistics and improved waste management were implemented.
The next generation Barco UniSee 500 will start shipping from April 2021.
