Barco Residential projectors are designed and built in our technology centers in Belgium and Norway. Know-how and craftmanship not only belong to our culture. They're part of our DNA.
The Pulse Platform
Pulse is the new hardware and software platform inside our projectors. Every new product will use the core from Pulse, meaning the user experience for a customer will be the same every time.
Pulse has a unique automatic aspect ratio detection function built into all our native cinemascope projectors. It will look for scope content in 2.2:1, 2.35:1, 2.37:1 or 2.40:1 content and automatically scale the image to fit the 5120x2160 resolution and of course change back to 16:9 (3840x2160) if you have content in that format. It will change aspect ratio when a 2.40:1 format movie has a menu’s outside the active picture frame and can also switch manually between the different formats.
And it’s more…. Pulse offer a unique web interface called Prospector. Prospector is a lot more than a basic user interface. It offers a full overview of all the features you find inside the projector. It offers monitor options as well as setup options. You can easily do a full installation of the projector from any computer/pad or phone with touch control and Wi-Fi access. Prospector uses a modern true bidirectional communication protocol called JSON-RPC 2.0
The coolest part about this new platform is that IT IS A PLATFORM, meaning; every little update we do on the SW side, will be available on all existing and new products. All products have the same look and feel and same feature set.
With the help of prospector, a user can easily extract the exact command to control a projector from a control system directly from the projector and the command will always work because when a projector is upgraded the command to control it which is part of the projector’s interface will be updated automatically with it.
