Go green on the big screen

At Barco, we illuminate screens while leading towards a greener future. Series 4 projectors redefine visual experiences and environmental responsibility. Energy-efficient, high-performance, with extended lifespans and optimized maintenance.

  • Energy efficiency

    Barco Series 4 projectors, highly energy-efficient, surpass traditional lamp-based ones, utilizing less power with EcoPure™ technology. This results in reduced energy consumption, lower carbon emissions, and long-term cost savings for cinema exhibitors.

  • Longer lifespan

    Barco Series 4 projectors, with a lifespan of over 40,000 hours, outlast traditional lamp-based ones. When linked to Barco’s Cloud, they maintain consistent performance and light quality. Unlike traditional lamps that demand frequent replacements, leading to increased waste and costs, laser projectors last longer, decreasing the need for interventions and replacements.

  • Modularity

    Barco Series 4 prioritizes modularity for cost efficiency and easy maintenance. With just five common spare parts for the entire portfolio and six Barco Laser Plate™ spare parts for all light source configurations, there's no need to replace the entire light source. This minimizes downtime and operational disruptions for cinema exhibitors.

  • Reduced waste and landfill disposal

    Lamp-based projectors create substantial waste from frequent lamp replacements, including packaging. Laser projectors eliminate this need, reducing lifetime waste for cinema exhibitors. This not only lessens environmental impact but also trims operational costs linked to waste disposal, logistics, and warehousing.
