Barco re-enforces its event portfolio with a new light-weight laser projector

Kortrijk, Belgium, 12 June 2019 – Two years ago Barco, global leader in events, large venue, and innovative laser projection, introduced the large venue laser phosphor projector range: the UDX. It was a real game changer for rental companies and AV integrators thanks to its compact design and exceptional performance. Relying on the benefits of the tried and trusted UDX platform, Barco is now launching a brand-new compact, light-weight and rugged 22K laser projector. Delivering technical superiority, efficient fleet management, astonishing versatility and more, the UDM incorporates the best of all worlds.
Impactful experiences

Thanks to the compact design and smart material choices, the UDM weighs almost half as much as today’s UDXs. With its 50 kilograms, the latest Barco projector is the lightest 22K laser projector on the market. But while the slim design minimizes installation time and reduces shipping and labor costs, it never compromises on brightness levels, color reproduction or image quality. 

Outperforming the Rec. 709 color space, the UDM has the widest color spectrum for 22K laser phosphor projection in the industry. And with Barco Pulse’s proprietary Single Step Processing technology, warping, scaling and 4K UHD processing is done in only one step which results in sharper images, market leading lowest latency and less dark time than comparable solutions.

Unlimited creativity

In addition, Barco’s UDM is the undisputed champion in flexibility. Barco’s unique Flex2, for example, allows owners to tune and lock brightness and resolution levels for a specific show. But there is more. A 90° Ultra-short Throw lens, a motorized rental frame, or a fiber card solution for 4K distribution over long distances - the new projector has an extensive list of peripherals at its disposal enabling superior quality in the most diverse setups without complicating the installation process. 

Easy serviceability

The integrated Barco Pulse technology offers an intuitive interface and flexible, user-friendly embedded control software. Furthermore, the UDM is fully optimized for fast troubleshooting and cloud-based fleet management. At the same time, its clever and modular design supports fast and easy maintenance in the field.
