Barco is targeting the corporate AV market with what it says is the quietest laser phosphor projector available, producing less than 35dB – or close to a whisper. The new one-chip DLP Present-P model was launched at ISE 2015 and begins shipping in April.
“Solid state illumination holds many benefits – such as solid colours, solid lifetime and solid installation – and we are continuously exploring how we can integrate this cutting-edge technology in our projectors,” says Barco’s VP for strategic marketing, corporate AV, Romeo Baertsoen says. “With these new additions to our Present-P portfolio, our product offering for the corporate AV market is solid as a rock.”
The new model is available in both WXGA and WUXGA resolution versions. Its laser phosphor light source offers 20,000 hours’ life, reduced power consumption and eliminates the need for lamp and filter replacements. The unit is compact and light and can be installed in any orientation anywhere, including a meeting room ceiling. A large lens shift range means images can always be positioned in the right way, even in challenging setups.
Barco says it is currently the only manufacturer to integrate a wireless collaboration system and HDBaseT technology under the hood of its projectors – when coupled with Barco’s ClickShare, the Present-P projectors transform into easy-to-use collaboration devices requiring minimal wiring for fast and secure installation.
