Barco, a world leader in advanced digital projection, is pleased to announce the latest addition to its portfolio of projectors: the NW-12. It features a native WUXGA resolution (1920×1200), offers users a greater pixel canvas, allows them to display more sources than ever in full resolution and is fully compatible with modern high-end laptops.
Barco’s NW-12 brings WUXGA to the three-chip DLP platform for the first time – a milestone in projection technology. This readies Barco for the next stage in professional visualization for venues that need more resolution. Applications for WUXGA resolution not only include full display of high-end computer laptops, but also text messaging that can be combined with native 1080p HD video. Tickers and continuous information feeds in lobbies and meeting rooms, or subtitles in worship services will now be clearly visible without interfering with the image’s native resolution.
The NW-12’s ultra-bright 12,000 lumens output renders it optimally suited for the bright ambient light conditions of auditoriums, large meeting rooms or conference halls. It also comes equipped with edge blending capabilities, so that they can be installed in any desired configuration. Barco’s NW-12 is designed with a sealed optical engine, which prevents dust from contaminating the projector’s image quality. In addition, it features liquid cooling to prevent the system from overheating and reduce noise levels to some of the lowest in its class.
To complement the three-chip DLP NW-12 projector, Barco also releases the smaller single-chip DLP NW-5 projector. Although it possesses the same sealed optical engine and multi-channel capabilities, it offers a light output of 5,000 lumens. This makes it the projector of choice for small- to medium-sized meeting rooms and boardrooms.
Both Barco’s NW-5 and NW-12 are compatible with Barco’s XDS Control Center software suite. This allows users to take control of all sources connected to the projector in a familiar Windows desktop interface, with mouse and keyboard. The XDS Control Center software makes user-friendly collaboration possible by offering quick access to remote computer desktops, and including a videoconferencing module that features easy audio and camera control.
