Barco brings much-wanted compact high-brightness projectors to rental and AV installation companies

Kortrijk, Belgium, 30 March 2017 – “UDX will revolutionize the way we work…” Barco, global leader in events, large venue, and laser projection, is launching a brand-new projector range that will change the game for rental companies and AV integrators. The most compact, high-brightness laser projectors on the market, the UDX projectors deliver reliable, razor-sharp 4K images for every type of event and venue. The new UDX series delivers stunning experiences in terms of color, resolution, and processing, combined with savings on installation, shipping time, and asset management, reducing costs significantly.

Matching the needs

“The UDX fulfills the requirements we are looking for,” states Thomas Gellermann, Head of R&D at Kraftwerk Living Technologies. “It features high-resolution 4K which is essential for bright images. It also has the power of laser phosphor illumination up to 32,000 lumens and that’s the range our large-screen installations are going for. What’s more, the design is easy to maintain and handle.”

Adam Benjamin, CEO of Fuse Technical Group continues: “The UDX will take the market by storm. It will change the game for a lot of rental houses.”
