Barco’s eastern European team is travelling through their region these days to present our wide product portfolio for the Industrial & Government, Rental & Staging and Corporate AV markets. This week, the road show made a halt in Bulgaria. Together with reseller Ebrasco, the team presented our control room solutions at the Strategic Infrastructure Conference in Sofia, yesterday. At the same time, integrator Pro-Technica demonstrated the Rental & Staging and Corporate AV equipment at a dedicated location.
Infrastructure trends, policies and strategies
The annual ‘Strategic Infrastructure Bulgaria’ conference is Bulgaria’s most influential conference in its field. It provides a high-level platform through which the public sector and institutions, leading companies and experts communicate and discuss trends, policies and strategies for the country’s strategic infrastructure projects. As a technology sponsor, Barco and Ebrasco manned the technology booth of the conference.
Powerful control room set-up
On display were our control room video walls - a 2x2 OL-721 and a 2x2 OBLX - and the TransForm N networked visualization system, which is a vital link in any control room set-up as it helps distribute an infinite number of data sources to an infinite number of displays. Just recently, Barco released a new version of the system. Integrating the NGS-D200 video-to-data encoder/decoder, the updated TransForm N system can now stream graphics of up to 4 MP across networks, thus providing the best possible, content-independent streaming available.
Faster, better decision-making
“Control rooms can benefit from razor-sharp images to monitor the tiniest detail, while the low latency point-to-multipoint streaming is ideal for application sharing,” said Dirk Hendrickx, Vice-President Strategic Marketing at Barco, upon the launch of the new release. Visitors to yesterday’s conference in Sofia could experience how the combination of the new TransForm N system and our video walls help control room operators retain a real-time overview and take better decisions, faster.
Expanded Projection Range
While our I&G solutions were on show in Sofia, Pro-Technica invited Bulgaria’s leading rental companies, as well as thought leaders and decision makers in the Corporate AV and venue business, to the Pro-Technica Open Days. Barco provided a broad range of equipment to showcase: our DP2K-10Sx digital cinema projector, our business projectors (with PFWU-51B and CRWQ-51B projectors as well as ClickShare units), an event set-up with HDX-W20 and F22 projectors and an image processing set-up with ScreenPro II, ImagePro II, Encore and PDS902 systems.
