18,000 lumens, WUXGA, 3-chip DLP projector

Barco's compact and powerful HDX-W18 projector combines full source flexibility with ImagePRO scaling capabilities. Thanks to its Xenon illumination and high contrast optical engine this 3-chip DLP projector reproduces rich colors, presenting audiences with crisp and vivid images on every occasion. What's more, the simple user interface allows you to set up the projector in no time. Finally, the HDX-W18 offers easy control through smartphones and tablet computers.

Quick preview

The HDX-W18's built-in color LCD screen provides you with all the information you need on your projector's status and allows you to preview your connected sources.


The HDX-W18 has a native 3G HDSDI/SDI input, which makes it compatible with progressive sources over a single BNC cable. This also means that the HDX-W18 allows for digital inputs that don't come through fragile DVI fiber cables.

Wireless control

Barco's HDX platform is designed for wireless control. Whether from one central PC or with a smartphone or tablet computer, you remain connected to the HDX at all times.

Only five building blocks

Designed with efficiency and quick setup in mind, the HDX-W18 features just five building blocks that can be removed and replaced quickly. Thanks to its compact design, the HDX-W18 can easily be boxed, shipped and fits into standard flight cases.

Fast signal distribution

Our proprietary BarcoLink technology guarantees swift signal distribution between Barco’s projectors and image processors. With BarcoLink, signals are distributed over a BNC coax cable, which is not only more durable but also enables you to lower your costs.

Choose your brightness with HDX Flex

Light-on-demandThe HDX-W18 projector is also available with light-on-demand option. Thanks to this technology, you can fully tune the light output of the projector to your event: it can be programmed to a light output of 10,000 lumens up to 20,000 lumens in 2,000 incremental steps. In this way, rental companies have more flexibility to offer their customers the light output they want.
