Barco steps up its LED offering and expands LED XT series with five new models

Kortrijk, Belgium, February 2020 - Barco, the global market leader in the display visualization industry, is expanding its LED portfolio. Last year, Barco claimed a renewed focus in high-res LED technology with the launch of the premium XT series and the announcement of its strategic partnership with Chinese LED manufacturer Unilumin. Today the company is introducing an extended offering with five new models addressing a variety of indoor LED applications.

Barco’s XT series narrow pixel pitch LED tiles are specifically designed to provide premium visuals, high reliability and great operating flexibility. Relying on its heritage in LED technology, Barco has mechanically optimized the Unilumin hardware for unprecedented seamless viewing experiences. The proprietary field-proven LED image processing solution InfinipixTM promises unmatched, constant performances under all circumstances. And Barco's unique EssentialCare service package offers full peace of mind with up to seven years of batch compatible replacement.

XT-E and XT-HB: The same but different

While the new XT-E and XT-HB build on those same Barco benefits, they are set to meet the varying needs in Barco’s targeted core segments, i.e. control rooms, television studios, meeting rooms and 3D visualization.

The entry level platform XT-E, offering tiles with 1.2, 1.5 and 1.9mm pixel pitch, allows LED projects that don’t require high brightness or advanced features to get access to the valued Barco products with a cost-effective solution. This entry level range is still designed according to the consistent Barco quality levels with careful selection of alternative LEDs.

With brightness levels up to 1500 nits, the XT-HB brings high-brightness LED to those applications in full daylight and environments with high amount of ambient light. Introducing two models with higher pixel pitches, i.e. XT1.9-HB and XT2.5-HB, this series is also ideally suited for viewing from longer distances and set-ups where narrower pixel pitches are nonessential.
