Barco Balder

A divine force, Barco Balder brings beauty and life to the most refined home cinema and media rooms. Manufactured to perfection in Norway it features the finest components such as aluminum and glass. Balder not only shares the same Ultra HD and HDR compatible electronics with the higher-end Loki models, the optical design and new single laser engine are also taken from the Loki platform.

Professional grade optics

By basing Balder’s optical engine on it’s bigger brother Loki’s architecture, custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses, image quality is in a class of its own.  To top that, Balder is built in aluminium, 37kg of pure quality. the result is the best picture quality ever shown at this level.

State of the art electronics 

All new “Platinum” electronics have been designed to process 4K with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2, whilst the optical engine utilises the very latest 0.9" DMD DLP chipset, delivering 3,840 x 2,160 pixels on screen.
Balder also features HDR 10, motorised lenses and a function to swap between 16:9 and cinemascope.  Featuring Barco’s unique RealColour processing, Balder enables simple and accurate calibration to any desired white point or greyscale.

Laser light source

Outstanding image quality also requires an exceptional light source. Which is why we have packed Balder with a brand new laser engine. Alongside significantly improved image uniformity, lasers last longer than traditional projector lamps, are not as fragile and offer nearly instant on/off. Light output is up to 7,000 ANSI lumens.

Liquid cooling 

Balder has departed from a pure fan based cooling system to a liquid cooling PID regulation system, allowing Balder to operate in any angle.

Features

Our Pulse platform is packed with features that will improve the overall customer experience, improve picture quality and simplify integration;

Illumination

A unique blue laser phosphor light engine developed by Barco.

Blue lasers are selected based on their high density and power efficiency.

Warp to Center

Unique to Barco Residential, Warp to Centre allows instant switching between different aspect ratios within our 16:9 projector models, eliminating the need for slow lens memory pre-sets.

Prospector

Barco’s web interface: Prospector, provides quick and simple configuration and calibration of Pulse projectors, along with monitoring and diagnostic tools. 

Warp and Blend

Warping is the process of digitally manipulating an image to compensate for alignment distortions.

Blending allows multiple projectors to be seamlessly combined to create unique digital canvas solutions.

RealColor

RealColor is Barco's proprietary color management system, enabling simple and accurate calibration to your desired color gamut or white point. 

Latency

Low latency is desirable to achieve that smoother gameplay and user experience we all want, without input lag. If latency is >30ms, your gaming experience will be compromised, Barco’s latency is <20ms (including all image processing).
