Standing out through value: Barco extends video wall portfolio with OverView LVD5521B

Kortrijk, Belgium, 13 March 2019 – Barco, a global leader in professional visualization technology, is introducing a new addition to its industry-leading mid-range Barco OverView LCD video-wall series. The OverView LVD5521B is a 55” 500-nit LCD solution that features a 1.8-mm seam, modular structure for easy maintenance, noiseless operation, automatic color and brightness calibration, and the option of operating the (redundant) power supply remotely. In this way, the OverView LVD5521B responds to the needs of control rooms, broadcast studios, corporate lobbies, experience centers, meeting rooms and signage applications and countless other possibilities.
  • 500 Nit brightness and 44% haze;
  • Superb inter-tile color and brightness, thanks to integrated sensors in the back that use the Sense X algorithm to automatically and continuously calibrate color and brightness;
  • Modular approach for easy servicing and less downtime;
  • User-friendly video-wall setup and control interface via the LCD connect box;
  • Clear and clean DOA procedure, with warranty period commencing upon activation;
  • Fan-less solution for noiseless performance;
  • Remote redundant power-supply option make the Overview LVD5521B suitable for 24/7 operations and mission-critical applications;
  • Optional 5-year service packages.

The OverView LVD5521B joins the OverView KVD5521B as part of Barco’s highly renowned and industry-leading OverView LCD video wall portfolio – which complements the premium Barco UniSee platform. The extremely narrow bezel makes sure that the inter-modular seams are minimized. Barco’s signature innovative Sense X algorithm – the unique automatic and continuous color and brightness calibration system − ensures a perfectly balanced image is produced across the entire wall at all times.

The Barco OverView LCD portfolio is designed to meet the needs of mission critical applications where unexpected failures must be optimized. The modular approach allows the input boards and power supplies to be quickly removed from the display for easy maintenance or replacement. This prevents downtime and speeds up servicing. The absence of cooling fans not only minimizes noise, but also eliminates moving parts (which are susceptible to wear), optimizing both the lifetime and the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Easy installation and operation

Overview LVD5521BThe OverView LVD5521B builds on the platform approach of Barco’s latest generation indoor video walls. The use of the LCD Connect makes it easy to install and control the video wall, while enhancing user-friendliness. The integration of DisplayPort v1.2, which makes it possible to feed 4 displays in loop-through with 4K@60Hz content, is vital for easy connection with a limited number of cables. Furthermore, the Barco video wall controllers serve all markets, from control rooms and broadcast studios to meeting rooms. The new UniSee Present media-focused controller expands this experience; it’s the perfect way to present content on the video walls in signage applications, including lobbies, experience centers, and retail stores.

“The new Overview LVD5521B, with its 1.8-mm seam, joins the OverView KVD5521B (with a 3.5-mm seam) to complete our industry-leading Barco OverView LCD series,” says Inez Schoels, Go To Market Program Manager at Barco. “Together with our rear-projection cube and direct-view LED solutions, we have a full video-wall portfolio, which makes us the leading display provider for large video walls. With our other high-value Barco innovations, like our video wall controllers and content management systems, the Overture AV control system and accompanying service CarePacks, Barco offers complete visualization systems that deliver years of worry-free operation.”

The OverView LVD5521B will start shipping from June 2019 onwards.
