Barco Control Rooms presents new partnerships, updated portfolio, and exciting installations


Kortrijk, Belgium, 13 June 2024 – Barco, a global leader in control room solutions, is showcasing its updated portfolio designed for the control rooms market at InfoComm 2024 (Las Vegas, NV, 12-14 June). With new flagship products in control room software, as well as its LED video walls and LCD video walls, the company sets new standards for the market. To optimally bring these products to market, Barco announces partnerships with WESCO, the leading US distributor of professional electronics, and the French distributor IP-Partners.

Barco has been designing visualization solutions for the control rooms market since the early 1990s, focusing particularly on large video walls and display controllers. The release of powerful networking and software solutions in later years positioned Barco as a leading manufacturer of complete control room solutions. Since 2022, the company has entirely updated its flagship product portfolio.

The introduction of Barco CTRL, Barco’s innovative software and hardware platform for control rooms, added a new dimension of simplicity, scalability, and (cyber)security to the operator workflow. This platform is continuously enhanced with new features, making it even more powerful and performing. We just released the 1.3 version, and a major update containing a number of exciting features is planned for this summer.

The launch of TruePix (TP), the premium LED video wall solution combined with the new Infinipix Gen2 image processor, was a major milestone for large visualization displays. This range is now expanded with the TP-I variant which brings more brightness with lower power consumption – further reducing the ecological footprint of the solution. Additionally, the recent (September 2023) launch of Barco UniSee II has further perfected the viewing experience for LCD video walls.

To emphasize its dedication to security, Barco was also granted the ISO/IEC 27001 certification for its control room solutions – the most prominent guide for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information management system.

A broader market accessibility

To bring these powerful and innovative solutions to a broader market, Barco teamed up with major US distributor WESCO. Starting in June 2024, this established and highly trusted Pennsylvania-based company will distribute Barco products to customers in the American market. In France, Nantes-based distributor IP-Partners has included Barco CTRL in its product portfolio, broadening the market reach for our products.

“These new partnerships are part of the expansion ambitions of Barco’s control rooms business unit,” says Tom Sys, Executive VP of Barco Control Rooms. “The combination of an innovative portfolio and vast expertise gives us a unique position in the market, and we want to be as accessible as possible to future users. The power and high level of security of Barco CTRL, for example, give us a significant advantage over the competition. We feel this is our momentum, and we’re planning to seize every opportunity.”

Exciting upcoming projects

The drive and ambition of the Control Rooms division have resulted in several high-profile projects. For example, MotorLand Aragón, a renowned racetrack in Alcañiz (Spain), has upgraded its safety using Barco technology to visualize and distribute all video and data of the circuit. Additionally, the British satellite telecommunications company Inmarsat has installed three new control rooms at their London site, featuring Barco LED video walls and networking solutions. For the refurbishment of its control rooms, the French National Police also turned to Barco, modernizing its emergency response infrastructure with a Barco UniSee wall and TransForm N networked visualization platform. By designing products and solutions that fully meet our customers’ needs, we live up to our promise: Empowering control rooms excellence.
