Barco has added a 3-chip DLP, 30,000-lumen model with WUXGA resolution to its HDF projector portfolio for large venues and rental and staging applications.
The HDF-W30LP FLEX projector offers high brightness levels and an extremely long life, according to Barco. Note the “LP” for laser phosphor.
For customers that own a Barco HDF-W30 FLEX without the LP, Barco has also unveiled a laser phosphor retrofit module, so they can replace the lamp in their existing projector with a laser phosphor module.
The HDF-W30LP FLEX projector has the same lenses, very wide lens shift range, ease of use, and modularity as the other HDX and HDF models, according to Barco.
The HDF-W30LP FLEX is ready to order and will begin shipping in Summer 2016.
More from Barco’s press release:
“Today, customers are confronted with a myriad of technology choices. We have been expanding our projector portfolio with high brightness and laser phosphor technology so that customers can make the right choice and add the latest technology to their inventory in a worry-free way,” comments Carl Rijsbrack, VP Events at Barco.
“Thanks to its high brightness and laser phosphor light source, the HDF-W30LP FLEX projector enables rental companies and venues to provide stunning experiences while saving both time and money. In this way, customers can choose for the future today – reaping benefits for many years to come.”
Reducing operating costs by more than 50% compared to a lamp-based projector, the HDF-W30LP FLEX enables customers to increase uptime while driving installation, service, and maintenance costs down. Thanks to its laser phosphor light source and advanced cooling design, this new projector provides up to 30,000 hours of maintenance-free operating time – resulting in considerable cost-savings on maintenance and consumables. In addition to minimizing maintenance interventions, the projector also allows customers to reduce their expensive spare parts inventory.
Stunning images for large screens
Professionals in venue and event industries are looking for solutions that guarantee reliable performance, specifically in terms of brightness and color. The HDF-W30LP FLEX couples its laser phosphor light source with high light output, 3-chip DLP® technology, and a high-contrast optical engine, to deliver sensational colors and stunning image quality that remains constant over time – for long-term, worry-free operation. Plus, the projector is also equipped with Barco’s cutting-edge ImagePRO technology for remarkable scaling power.
Ultimate installation flexibility
Running in any orientation, the HDF-W30LP FLEX offers users more flexibility in projector location. Its standard flexible brightness feature enables users to tune and lock their projector’s light output to a specific application, from 10,000 to 30,000 lumens in incremental steps. The cooling unit can be positioned up to eight meters (26 feet) away from the projector, so it can be easily attached to a wall or mounted in a truss.
Extending the industry-leading platform
Barco’s HDX, HDF, and HDQ ranges are currently the most powerful projectors on the market for events, venues, theme parks, visitor attractions and projection mapping projects. These rugged projectors are proven to be fit for life on the road, and their modular design of only five building blocks makes them easy to install and service. And as the HDF-W30LP FLEX projector shares its peripherals – such as TLD lenses, rental frames, and flight cases – with the other Barco HDF projectors, investment is limited.
