Jul 6, 2006 12:00 PM
Barco's new iD R600 DLP projector offers advanced picture-in-picture functionality for displaying multiple sources, both video and data. This feature ensures the flexibility to show multiple windows simultaneously on a single canvas. Using seamless source switching, each source can be switched on the fly without the display of distracting onscreen warning messages. To the viewer, video images are changed into data images in an instant. The Barco iD R600 can show up to two data sources and one video source at the same time, without optional input boards.
This 6,000-ANSI-lumen DLP projector generates a bright, true color, 1400x1050 high-resolution video image on a 4:3 canvas, with a contrast ratio of more than 1500:1, resulting in the projection of high-quality video and data images. Combined with the robust DLP technology, the Barco iD R600 is best suited for intensive-use applications in bright environments such as hotels, museums, imaging applications, boardrooms, conference centers, casinos, and even large classrooms or university lecture halls.
The networked version of the iD Pro R600 will be available in Q4 2006. If used with a display server, the networked projector can be easily connected to the user's network infrastructure. Linking several of these iD Pro R600 to the network can bring multi-windowing to multi-site meetings, with the ability to perform realtime interaction and file sharing.
