Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – 11 August 2016 – Celebrating more than 20 years in Latin America, global visualization company Barco is strengthening its presence in Brazil with a growing deployment of advanced visualization projects that support public health and safety, commerce and entertainment in the region.

Barco believes in the economic strength of the country as one of the largest growth engines in Latin America, and has been an active contributor to the region for many years, helping to elevate the standard of living for millions of residents, while offering opportunities for business growth.

Barco solutions promote public safety, healthcare and commercial progress

Many of Barco’s technologically advanced AV solutions have contributed to the success of Brazil’s most high-profile public venues and events, as well as supported the development of corporate and commercial enterprises in the region. Projects that are helping to fuel the transportation, utilities, and healthcare infrastructures serving the country’s 200+ million residents include: control room visual collaboration platforms help safeguard and manage efficient travel; best-in-class cinema projection and immersive sound systems enrich the moviegoing experience; and innovative diagnostic, surgical and clinical medical display systems ensure optimum healthcare.


A growing investment in the Latin America region

We have increased strategically located parts depots, and are providing 24/7/365 onsite technical support through our service teams. In addition, Barco’s installation and advanced service certification training is still expanding to support our growing installed bases.”
