Balder CinemaScope

The cornerstone of home cinema systems designed to deliver outstanding experiences in the world's finest homes.

Balder incorporates our unique PULSE electronics platform, inhouse designed laser engine and the world’s finest optical components, fusing them together with the imaging device technology chosen by 9 out of 10 professional cinemas: DLP.

Features

Our Pulse platform is packed with features that will improve the overall customer experience, improve picture quality and simplify integration;

Illumination

A unique blue laser phosphor light engine developed by Barco.

Blue lasers are selected based on their high density and power efficiency.

CinemaScope

Barco Residential has a unique way to detect and manage aspect ratios within our cinemascope projectors called Cropping. 

Pairing with a supported control system, results in minimal user interaction when selecting aspect ratios for projector and screen. 

Prospector

Barco’s web interface: Prospector, provides quick and simple configuration and calibration of Pulse projectors, along with monitoring and diagnostic tools.

Warp and Blend

Warping is the process of digitally manipulating an image to compensate for alignment distortions.

Blending allows multiple projectors to be seamlessly combined to create unique digital canvas solutions.


RealColor

RealColor is Barco's proprietary color management system, enabling simple and accurate calibration to your desired color gamut or white point. 

Latency

Low latency is desirable to achieve that smoother gameplay and user experience we all want, without input lag. If latency is >30ms, your gaming experience will be compromised, Barco’s latency is <20ms (including all image processing).

Professional grade optics

 

By basing Balder Cinemascope’s optical engine on its bigger brother Loki’s Cinemascope’s architecture, incorporating custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses, image quality is in a class of its own.

Topping that, Balder’s chassis and core are built from aluminium and magnesium, which offer exceptional robustness, resulting in the best picture quality ever shown at this level.

State of the art electronics 

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.

Balder CinemaScope uses the very latest 0.9" DMD DLP chipset, to display flawless 5K UHD (5,120 × 2,160 px), 2.37:1 aspect ratio images on screen.

CinemaScope

Our unique aspect ratio detection system, automatically crops and scales content to fit the appropriate screen area, ranging from 1.78:1 to 2.39:1. 

Manual cropping is also available for custom configurations such as cinemascope subtitle support, where only the top black bar is removed from none 1.78:1 content, preserving the subtitles at the foot of the image.

Liquid cooling 

Balder has departed from a pure fan based cooling system, opting instead for a liquid cooling PID regulation system.  This combined with our simulation grade warp engine allows Balder to operate at any angle (free rotation), offering new possibilities when it comes to architectural integration.


Theatre rooms

Balder Cinemascope is the perfect product for medium to large theatre rooms.
