  • Media Room Series
  • 4K UHD Resolution (3,840 x 2,160)
  • Laser Phosphor  
  • Up to 6,500 ANSI lumens 

Medea is our entry level 4K UHD projector, with up to 6,500 ANSI lumens, laser phosphor illumination and custom Barco Pulse electronics.

Painstakingly designed, optimised and manufactured in our European design centers, Medea delivers unprecedented performance in small to medium sized media rooms and dedicated home cinemas.

Professional grade optics 

Medea’s optical engine architecture is world-class, built from custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses. The resulting image quality is simply outstanding.

State of the art "Pulse" electronics 

Our “Pulse” electronics are built on a superior FPGA platform, featuring a dual core processor on the industry’s only 20 nm SoChave, with 96 transceiver lanes delivering 3.3 Tbps of serial bandwidth.

Thanks to our unique single step processing technology (SSPTM), Pulse electronics are designed to process 4K UHD, HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2 and HDR10 signals with extremely low latency.  This provides exceptional gaming and movie viewing experiences.

RealColor 

Barco’s RealColor processing enables simple and accurate calibration to your desired color gamut and white point.

Award winning DLP technology 

Medea utilises the very latest 0.66" DMD from Texas Instruments which features a 5.4 Micron Micromirror Pitch and a ±17° Micromirror Tilt (Relative to Flat Surface).  This technology allows us to display flawless 4K UHD (3,840 × 2,160 px) images.

Laser light source 

Light on demand, allows you to adjust light output to match the time of day and/or content you’re viewing. Medea’s long laser lifetime means you can treat it like a TV, whilst still getting the big screen experience.  20,000 hours laser usage equates to 5 hours viewing every day for 11 years.
