Reims Image: it’s all about the importance of images

Images are at the very heart of communications, these days.

At ‘Reims Image’, from 25 to 28 November, around 340 researchers, R&D people, etc. discussed and discovered developments in the field of ‘images’, i.e. virtual reality, simulation and data processing applications. They discovered Barco solutions at three different booths.

The resolution revolution: introducing 4K to the digital operating room

Barco introduces 4K to the digital operating room
Ten years is a long time in technology. Imagine a world without social networks or the ability to buy and listen to music on the move, wherever you are – yet it’s only 10 years since the launch of Facebook and iPods changed our communication behavior forever. For surgeons, the introduction of high-definition (HD) imagery in the OR was just as significant – enabling more precise, high standard procedures.

It’s a decade later, and the OR is about to experience another watershed moment. 4K, which was introduced to cinemas a few years ago, is now set to revolutionize surgeons’ practice.

4K in control rooms: how many pixels can you handle?

4K logo

4K is a resolution standard that literally almost has 4000 pixel lines or 8.8 million pixels (to be correct, 4096 x 2160). This is four times the resolution you have at the moment on your HD television set. By adding pixels, you are adding different perceived image quality features like sharpness, color depth, etc., but most importantly you create more information space.

US-FDA product variance for Barco laser-illuminated cinema projector

Barco laser projector
We are happy to announce that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted a product variance for our brand-new 6 primary laser 3D (6P) laser-illuminated projector. The FDA has also granted approval for a predefined laser show variance, allowing US-based exhibitors to safely install the 4K Barco laser projector without excessive legal constraints and extra costs. In this way, exhibitors who install the Barco laser projector do not need to prove compliancy with the same stringent regulations as laser light shows. Thanks to its fully integrated and inherently safe design – featuring unified laser light sources that are housed within the projector – the Barco laser projector prevents direct contact with native laser light, offering exhibitors worry-free operation and ultimate peace of mind.
