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.
Thor is the world’s first and only 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.
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.
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.
Not every projector can claim to be hand-built, 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 step of the process is overseen by specifically trained professionals. Moreover, the assembly of vital parts is performed by hand. To guarantee ultimate quality at all stages of manufacture, our projectors do not travel down an automated production line.
The Barco Thor platform represents the pinnacle of Barco Residential’s projection portfolio. Thor, the hammerwielding god of lightning, brings true, direct laser projection to the most exclusive homes for the first time. The perfectly designed 15,000-lumen output, hermetically sealed 4K DLP® engine delivers reality altering levels of immersion for the largest home cinemas.
