Barco video walls prove best for Korea’s top nationwide broadcaster

In an exciting collaboration, Chosun Broadcasting Company has chosen Barco video walls as backdrop for its TV Chosun News studio. These installations bring a lot of opportunities with it; TV Chosun News is at the highest level of broadcasting authority in Korea and airs nationwide. VIP visitors from many industries are regulars in the studios and now witness Barco solutions performing perfectly for the number-one broadcaster. The eye-catching image quality delights and the seamless technology speaks for itself when seen in use, opening up marketing opportunities in every direction.  

TV Chosun opted for Barco’s OVL-715 LED video wall panels 15x2 to build their news backdrop in the Main Studio. The high brightness of the OVL-715 is adjustable, with high levels of contrast, a broad white-point setting and the Sense6 automatic calibration system to ensure consistency. Add to this the redundant video input and LED illumination, as well as the E2 and EC-50 controllers that help to run the show, and it becomes clear that Barco solutions are instrumental in bringing TV Chosun viewers the clearest images possible.

“With this upgrade, TV Chosun is cementing its public image as the most professional and reliable broadcaster in the business,” says Dongmin Shin, the Deputy Director at TV Chosun. “The OLV-715 LED video wall delivers a crystal-clear news backdrop that gives our viewers the first-class images they deserve.”  

This is also true for the installation of Barco solutions continuing on from the Main Studio. In the B Studio, TV Chosun installed a Barco UniSee 2x2 LCD video wall, capitalizing on the excellent image quality, superior uniformity and high brightness, as well as the extremely narrow inter-screen gap between the bezel-less screens. However, it’s the flicker-free images and redundancy options that increase reliability and guarantee TV Chosun showrunners complete peace of mind when it’s time to go on air.

This peace of mind has been further enhanced with the use of Barco’s state-of-the-art controllers; the control room, for example, is benefitting from ease and efficiency delivered by recently installed E2, EC-50 and ECU-200 controllers. The unique auto-calibration technology, high-quality 4K input and output capabilities, exceptional durability and flexible usage ensure TV Chosun News looks sharp and performs at the top of the game.

“We now have the best news broadcasting and the best technology working together in perfect harmony,” explains Dongmin Shin. “Our viewers are enthralled by the results!”
