2 min de lecture

Publitec, a leading German provider of presentation systems and event services, has purchased four new Barco HDX-W18 projectors, including Image Pro-II systems, to complement its rental stack. After evaluating several solutions, Publitec found that Barco’s HDX-W18 ‒ the latest addition to Barco’s high brightness HDX family ‒ offered the very best value for money.


A long-term customer of Barco, Publitec delivers a very broad range of images and media technology for use during events - projectors, screens, displays, cameras, etc. -, which it accompanies with expert advice and consultancy. The company, which is amongst the key rental companies in Germany`s AV market, has a broad rent pool with established brands, including Barco projectors. It recently decided to extend its offering of Barco solutions with four compact 17,500 HDX-W18 projectors on account of their exceptional brightness in a compact design.

Exceptionally bright, yet compact

Barco’s HDX-W18 was introduced in January last, as the 17,500 lumens addition to the HDX range. All products are equipped with Xenon lamps and contain a high contrast optical engine. This results in stunning color reproductions, presenting audiences with crisp and vivid images on every occasion. The on-board image processing technology is based on Barco's renowned ImagePRO signal processor, which offers high quality and flexible scaling capabilities.

“After extensive research we selected the HDX-W18 projector as the most suitable for our needs. It is very small and lightweight, without compromising resolution, brightness or contrast levels. Thanks to a simple user interface, the HDX-W18 can be installed in no time and users can easily control it via a smartphone or tablet computer. We are confident our customers will truly appreciate all these characteristics and we trust the projectors will be rented out frequently,” commented Jens Richter, CEO of Publitec. “Moreover, we look forward to the launches that Barco will announce later this week, during InfoComm, as we definitely plan to further invest in Barco’s high-quality product range in the future.”

”We are delighted that a leading rental partner like Publitec is expanding its range with more Barco,” said Markus Vehlow, sales manager Entertainment Division. “As we had hoped, the interest in our HDX series is growing, worldwide, as the solution is unique in combining brightness with compactness. During this week’s InfoComm, rental partners will discover more exciting innovations that will add value to their solution stack.”
