Barco LiveDots introduces 14 mm transparent LED display

Kortrijk, Belgium, 3 July 2013 – Barco LiveDots, a Barco company, is proud to introduce the V14m, a 14 mm pixel pitch transparent LED display - with 4,300 nits brightness and a contrast of 6,000:1. Designed for the rental and staging market, the brand-new V14m is a lightweight LED display that is easy and safe to set up thanks to its special magnetic V-lock. It offers rental companies the flexibility to use the V14m both indoors and outdoors and, thanks to its low weight, it allows them to build large dynamic video backdrops on stage, as well as side screens on lightweight trusses. The V14m is available now for commercial distribution.
“We are proud to expand our V series LED display with a sixth member,” says Carl Rijsbrack, CMO of Barco LiveDots. “With the V14m, rental companies can create large backdrops for both indoor and outdoor stages, whether straight or curved. What’s more, it’s also ideally suited for overhead and ceiling screens.”

Magnetic lock for quick installation
One of the most striking features of the V14m is its magnetic V-lockTM, which significantly reduces setup times and enables a single technician to safely install an 800x800 tile on his own. A lightweight and slim LED display, the V14m can be boxed and shipped easily and takes up only as much space as strictly necessary. The V14m shares its mechanics with the C series, so that rental companies that already own the Barco C series mechanics can reuse them for the V14m.

Suited for outdoor use
Not only can the V14m be used indoors, but it is also ideally suited for temporary outdoor use, as it is equipped with the latest outdoor SMD technology. Thanks to its rental typhoon test certificate - in addition to its full IP65 rating for the front and back - it is completely waterproof. This testing program, developed in-house, not only evaluates the effect of water and dust (the basis for the IP rating) on the LED display, it also takes the impact of UV rays, varying temperatures and vibrations into account. This test guarantees a truly reliable display that meets the demands of outdoor use for rental applications and withstands the most severe weather conditions.

High-performance scaling and control
Just like the other V series LED displays, the V14m is driven by the DV-100 image processor, which offers high-performance scaling. It supports all the latest video standards (HDMI, DisplayPort, 3G SDI), and incorporates easy-to-use front panel controls. In combination with the V series Toolset (VTS), the DV-100 allows for creative setups and remote control. The VTS comes with an intuitive interface for easy display setup and management, and it offers advanced options such as brightness and color temperature control and display configuration tools.
