Each year in October, when the days get darker, the German capital of Berlin puts all its lights on for one of the world’s largest illumination festivals – the Berlin Festival of Lights. This year’s 8th edition, from 10 to 21 October last, marked a première for Barco and its integration partner XL Video Germany: eight ultra-bright HDF-W26 projectors helped brilliantly depict the story of the brand-new Volkswagen Golf VII on Berlin’s legendary Hotel Adlon.


XL Video has recently invested in a series of new, high-brightness Barco projectors to meet the market demand for exceptional levels of brightness. The new HDF-W26 projectors appeared to be ideal for Volkswagen’s projection mapping project onto the façade of Hotel Adlon.

“We chose the 26,000 lumens DLP projectors to set a brilliant highlight to Berlin’s Festival of Lights,” said Marco Scholwin, Operations Manager at XL Video Germany. “In addition, the WUXGA chip of the new projectors perfectly covered the 70 x 40 meters facade of the historic Adlon.”

The total set-up in Berlin included eight Barco HDF-W26 projectors. Barco’s proprietary Optical Soft Edge Matching was used to maintain the black level in the overlap zone to that of the separate images.
