Barco LiveDots launches new series of cost-effective LED displays

Kortrijk, Belgium, 5 September 2012 – Barco LiveDots, a Barco company, has unveiled a budget-friendly family of LED displays specifically designed for branding, advertisement and sports applications. The brand-new V-series consists of two models: the V6 – a 6mm indoor SMD LED display – and the V10 – a 10mm outdoor SMD LED display. Barco will showcase the new V-series at Sign2Com, from 9 to 11 September 2012 in Kortrijk, Belgium. Both models are available for sale immediately.

Expanded LED platform
“By adding a new platform to our portfolio, we can now offer our customers four different LED platforms to choose from, covering a wide spectrum of applications. The X-series is our premium product line, offering unprecedented image quality; the C-series is our mid-range offering, providing Barco image quality at an attractive price for both rental and permanent installations; while the T-series is dedicated to 24/7 operation for branding and advertising applications where total cost of ownership is key,” says Carl Rijsbrack, CMO of Barco LiveDots. “And with the introduction of the V-series, we have a solution for customers looking for cost-effective LED displays that offer an outstanding performance and reliability.”

Excellent performance
Building on Barco’s experience with high-end LED technology, the V-series is supported by the new and state-of-the-art DV-100 LED image processor, equipped with the high-performance Athena scaler for superior image quality and performance. Designed for full flexibility, the DV-100 also supports new standards like 3G SDI, HDMI and DisplayPort, next to supporting standard inputs up to (dual) HD-SDI.

Easy setup and management
The V-series is managed and controlled by the dedicated V-series Toolset (VTS), a direct derivative of the top-of-the-line Director Toolset. The VTS comes with an intuitive interface for easy display management and set up. Advanced options such as brightness, gamma and color temperature control and the display configuration tools make the V-series an excellent choice for basic LED display applications.

Black package LEDs for high contrast
The V6 is a tile-based indoor LED display equipped with 6mm pixel pitch SMD LEDs. It features the latest indoor LED technology with black package LEDs and offers very dark black levels with an extremely high contrast compared to other products in its class. Its very wide viewing angle is another unique characteristic that makes the V6 excel in image quality.

Ideally suited for outdoor use
The second new product, the V10, is a 10mm pixel pitch LED display designed for outdoor use. Just like all other Barco outdoor LED displays, it has successfully passed Barco’s extensive outdoor testing program which exceeds standard IP rating tests. Thanks to its modular design, the V10 can easily be integrated. It also features a unique mechanical design, which improves the contrast levels and contrast/brightness ratio.
