  • Cinema at Home Series
  • Native 4K Resolution (4,096 x 2,160)
  • 6P RGB Laser
  • Up to 32,000 ANSI Lumens

The Thor platform represents the pinnacle of Barco Residential’s projection portfolio.

Thor's perfectly designed, 6P RGB laser technology, 32,000 lumen output and hermetically sealed 4K DLP® engine, delivers reality altering levels of immersion for the largest home theatres.

World’s most powerful residential projector

Thor+ is the world’s most powerful residential projector with integrated laser 6P RGB laser, 4K 3D projection solution for Cinema at Home.  In order to reliably achieve long lifetime at brightness levels twice that of xenon projectors, a sophisticated control system actively cools both laser modules and the DMD engine, providing a predictable 30,000 hour lifetime with at least 80% of the initial brightness. 

Laser speckle

Thanks to Barco’s industry-leading technology to minimize laser speckle, Thor+ is able to provide superior 2D and 3D images on both white and silver screens.

Color convergence mechanism

Thor+ also features our unique and highly acclaimed analog color convergence mechanism. By allowing the green and red DMD chips to be manually adjusted, perfect convergence can be achieved. This attention to detail renders images sharper and more immersive than ever before. 

Hand built

Not every projector can claim to be handbuilt, Thor can. Even though we are using state-of-the-art technologies for most processes – such as measuring, calibrating, assembling our electronics, and manufacturing the delicate optics and mechanics – every single step of the process is overseen by specifically trained professionals. Moreover, the assembly of vital parts is performed by hand, guaranteeing ultimate quality at all stages of manufacture.
