Barco Residential projectors are designed and built in our technology centers in Belgium and Norway. Know-how and craftmanship not only belong to our culture. They're part of our DNA.
As the opening credits roll, the audience is transported into an unexpected world of superior movie realism, embraced by ultimate image quality and immersive sound. This compelling universe is created by Barco’s Freya residential projector.
Freya combines media server functionalities with cinema processing electronics: Barco Alchemy Integrated Cinema Media Processor (ICMP) with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 support The ICMP have two HDMI inputs to support Bluray, DVD’s, gaming consoles and other media devices. The projector offers advanced processing power combined with media server functionality, integrated playback and content management. Barco Alchemy enables showings of 4K 2D content at 60fps and 4K 3D at 30fps. Reducing the required hardware makes installation simpler and makes the system more reliable and easier to use.
Barco Residential’s Freya I projector is based on Barco’s known Series 4 platform. Freya is also the wife of Odin, the most powerful god in Northern mythology and the mother of Balder. That alone should be enough to understand the power of this projector.
The core of the projector is using our known Pulse platform, combining that with Alchemy and you get a very smart and easy to use projector. Freya is exclusively created for high-end home theaters, with more contrast and a wider color gamut, at the level of our reference Thor projector. It features the latest in native 4K DLP® chipsets from Texas Instruments and the acclaimed Barco Alchemy Integrated Cinema Media Processor (ICMP)
