Kortrijk, Belgium, 7 September 2023 – Barco, a world leader in video wall solutions, proudly announces its new LCD video wall Barco UniSee II. This new generation of the successful and innovative Barco UniSee platform significantly boosts the viewing experience while refining the ergonomic aspects. This makes Barco UniSee II the new standard in professional LCD video walls for applications such as control rooms, boardrooms, corporate lobbies, and experience centers.
The revolutionary Barco UniSee platform combines improved image performance with a precise and predictable installation and maintenance. Barco UniSee II further leverages these innovations and takes another major step towards total image perfection. Drastically improved image quality, perfect uniformity, optimized ergonomics, and a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) are the most eye-catching aspects of the new flagship platform.
The color gamut has been significantly increased by applying quantum dot technology. This allows to visualize color-rich content more vividly, for a multitude of applications. In addition, the video wall’s contrast is increased to High Dynamic Range (HDR) levels, by implementing a mini-LED backlight unit which allows more refined and accurate local dimming. The resulting deep blacks, boosted white and more saturated colors allow to create the intended impact.
Because a video wall has to appear as a single canvas, the individual displays need to be perfectly aligned. Mechanically (thanks to the renowned Barco Mount), but also optically. Sense X, which automatically and in real-time matches the brightness and colors, has been extended to also match the contrast. Hence, it creates a perfectly balanced single canvas, both for static and dynamic content.
Video walls are intended to be viewed no matter what the ambient lighting conditions are, wherever you are in the room, or whatever content is displayed. Barco UniSee II ensures that the content always comes across. Advanced polarizer technology delivers a constant performance, whatever the viewing angle. What’s more, Barco UniSee II’s eye fatigue reduction and reduced radiated heating, provide the comfort control room operators need. The brightness of 800 nit, with the possibility to locally boost up to 1300 nit, makes all visuals shine, no matter what the ambient lighting conditions are.
The real use power consumption of Barco UniSee II is 20% lower compared to the previous generation, thanks to the use of mini-LED backlights. Additionally, the uptime is maximized due to the very high reliability of the platform (with redundancy options for critical components). This results in a high Return on Investment (ROI).
“Barco UniSee II is another big step forward for LCD video walls, which is the mostly deployed technology on the market today (compared to direct view LED and rear projection video walls),” says Gerrit Vermeire, Director Product Management at Barco. “The image quality has been refined with state-of-the-art technology to a level never seen in professional LCD video walls before – while respecting the viewers’ wellbeing. Both the big picture and the smallest details are shown with the greatest precision, making sure all content stands out and has the intended impact. Coupled with the field-proven UniSee Mount and a great service offering, Barco UniSee II is without a doubt the most advanced LCD video wall solution on the market today.”
