About XHD-400 series

Offering some very unique features, the Barco Media Servers are fully integrated visual production systems that enable video professionals to easily develop their show from idea to realization. Allowing you to quickly and easily set up, preview and manage your show environment, they form the perfect connection between your creative ideas and the display systems that bring them to life. The powerful XHD-400, XHD-402 and XHD-404 offer dedicated user interface outputs and are capable of managing 1 x 4K or 4 x 2K outputs.

Powered by X-Agora

Barco couples its media server hardware with the X-Agora software. This software is scalable, compatible with popular media formats, supports connectivity with various sensors and input, and makes it possible to deploy content onto the most challenging surfaces with an advanced yet easy-to-use projection mapping tool. Its interactive media system captures and processes data in real-time, creating interactive media content for various types of displays.
