New ImagePRO 4K promises an “ideal world” for live event professionals and fixed installs

Kortrijk, Belgium, 5 June 2018 – Live event professionals have been calling on ImagePRO as the ultimate fix-it tool for visuals for years. The new ImagePRO 4K further raises the bar with higher resolution and color performance.

The scale of shows in the live event sector increases daily. The problem for audiovisual professionals is that they are regularly faced with the challenge of dealing with a range of signal types and formats within the same show. Glitches in video are complicated and can occur for various reasons that are hard to predict.

In an ideal world, professional systems would not present any issues.  In the real word, the chances of everything working strictly according to plan is about as much as having pink unicorns dancing at your birthday party.

Since its first release in 2004, Barco’s ImagePRO has been the reference when it comes to scaling, scan converting and switching images. The ImagePRO 4K continues to ensure faultless events and also upgrades the experience, bringing rock-solid performance to the higher image resolutions of a 4K world.

The ImagePRO 4K offers the very real benefits of an ideal world for AV professionals, echoed in the pink unicorn visuals of its teaser campaign.

Superb performance

ImagePRO 4K easily scales, converts and switches the highest quality signals without latency (4K, 4:4:4, 60p, 10-bit) to ensure the smoothest images. 

The latest I/O standards, HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2 and 3G-12G SDI are seamlessly converted for unparalleled flexibility.

Road-ready and reliable

Like all Barco’s image processing products, the ImagePRO 4K is built to provide long-life performance both for fixed installs as well as for life on the road. What’s more, the live-source view on the front panel provides a clear view of the incoming signal giving you the confidence you need to execute your event flawlessly.

ImagePRO 4K will be launched at InfoComm 2018, where professionals are being invited to “find their inner unicorn” at the North Hall Meeting Rooms N257.
