Rock solid and powerful: Barco’s new true solid-state projector delivers a vision to trust
Kortrijk, Belgium, 12 November 2018 – Barco, a global leader in simulation projectors, proudly announces the introduction of its FL40 series. This true solid-state projector, using the latest in HLD and LED illumination technology, combines amazing visual performance and extreme reliability with a low TCO. Even in the most demanding environments, the FL40 delivers a vision to trust.
Developed by Barco’s experienced high-performance simulation projector engineers, the FL40 series delivers razor-sharp images with great contrast and exceptional color fidelity, guaranteed for nonstop 24/7 operation.
Offered in native WUXGA and WQXGA resolution, the performance of the FL40 WQXGA version can be extended up to 4K resolution (3840 x 2400) via Barco’s proprietary Single Step Processing (SSP®) technology—a unique feature of the powerful and flexible Barco Pulse unified software platform. Thanks to the SSP technology in Barco Pulse the FL40 delivers high-resolution images faster and with lower latency than any other competing technology.
Extreme reliability in all situations
No matter whether pitching, rolling, or bouncing, or for training in the air, at sea, or on land… The Barco FL40 is a true solid-state projector with no moving parts or lamps. Its solid aluminum baseplate—itself acting as a mounting plate—coupled with an array of mounting points in the front and on the top, makes this projector solid as rock and perfectly suited for use on motion platforms.
The FL40 uses a proven DLP® sealed optical engine and latest solid-state HLD LED illumination. Simulator operators can benefit from reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with extended maintenance cycles and no lamp changes or color adjustments for up to 50,000 hrs. Barco’s Constant Light Output (CLO) functionality ensures total predictability in linear brightness performance over the life of the projector. Additional protection is available when using new, intelligent, high-efficiency air filters for installations in dusty and polluted environments.
Extending the FL40 series is the FS40, which offers NVG stimulation through a dedicated IR LED channel, in addition to the standard features of the FL40. Dual-input support for simultaneous IR and RGB images, up to WQXGA at 120 Hz resolution, allows for individual image adjustments and intensity in both daytime and the nighttime scenarios, with NVG stimulation for a fully immersive training experience at any time of day.
Pioneering to perfect HLD LED technology
“The FL40 series is the next exciting entry into the most scalable simulation projector portfolio in the industry” says Dave Fluegeman, VP of Barco’s Simulation Division. “Built on Barco Pulse and the proven optical designs the industry has come to know us for, the FL40 series provides system integrators with another high-quality, high-performance, simulation-specific option which they can trust to perform, backed up by a dedicated support and engineering team.”
“We have been working with Barco for more then 15 years and are thrilled that our innovative HLD LED technology will be part of Barco’s solid state projector portfolio”, says Neşet Irşık, General Manager of Digital Projection Lighting at Signify (former Philips Lighting).
“The launch of the powerful Barco FL40 projector proves the unique benefits of HLD LED technology in very demanding markets like Training & Simulation. It offers a perfect combination of high brightness, energy efficiency and color performance. HLD LED is a reliable solid-state solution that will lead the future of projection lighting.”
Barco’s FL40 will make its debut at I/ITSEC 2018 (Orlando, Florida) from 26 to 30 November. Come visit us at booth #849!
