Kortrijk, Belgium, 29 January 2024 – Barco, the innovative technology company that specializes in visualization and imaging solutions, announces the Encore3, the highly anticipated third generation Event Master platform. In addition, Barco is launching the IO Gateway, its first IPMX transcoder. The introduction of the new products is the start of a new era of cutting-edge Barco image processing technology.
The Encore3 is designed to be the ultimate image processing platform for every event offering integrated video signal distribution, switching, layered video screen composition, and the ability to manage all screens – be it projection, LCD or LED.
It grants access to a broader canvas space of ~80MP PVW/PGM, boasting 12 bits 4:4:4 processing with never less than 16 fully capable 4K layers per screen. And like any other of the Barco state-of-the-art video processors, this presentation powerhouse brings forth exceptional native 4K image quality, best-in-class Athena scaling, and ultra-low processing latency down to 16ms.
With a flexible slot-based architecture and modular cards, the Encore3’s built-to-order design enables users to configure the system to their requirements and safeguards their investments through card and controller reusability.
Barco IO Gateway series brings a revolutionary AVoIP solution using IPMX/2110 open standards. The gateways with bi-directional connections form the foundation of a simplified, future-proof setup, seamlessly transporting traditional baseband signals, such as HDMI and SDI, into an open standards networks-based system. By reducing the need for additional switchers, cables, converters, and more, the IO Gateway solution streamlines installations and interoperability while minimizing clutter and costs.
“For almost 20 years, live event professionals and operators have been calling on the Barco Event Master systems as the preferred choice for shows of all sizes worldwide. Last year, the E2 even showed a record-high sales,” says Robbie Bruce, Director Product Management Image Processing at Barco. “With these new additions, we’re determined to continue leading the way for our customers for many years to come with a future-proof suite of image processing solutions and AV-over-IP capabilities.”
