Kortrijk, Belgium, 16 June 2014 – As a global leader in professional visualization solutions, Barco has the building blocks and the network-centric technology to build complete LCD video walls. Today, the company proudly presents its new Instant VideoWall solution, offering customers an all-in-one package that simplifies the configuration process dramatically and saves time and money. The Instant VideoWall has been developed with interoperability and collaboration in mind, thus guaranteeing a future-proof investment.
The Instant VideoWall is the first of Barco’s next-generation fit-for-purpose LCD visualization platforms – featuring best-in-class visual performance, award-winning mounting structures, and display management capabilities. Barco’s Instant VideoWall not only sets new standards for image quality and performance, it also simplifies installation and maintenance, provides 24/7 mission-critical reliability, and caters to the visualization needs of control rooms as well as of collaboration & planning and research & development applications.
Future-proof all-in-one architecture
Barco’s all-in-one architecture comes in standard 2x2, 3x2 and 4x2 tiled LCD set-ups, featuring the industry's thinnest ultra-narrow bezel: as narrow as 3.5 mm with the recently announced Overview OVD and KVD series. The all-in-one solution also comes with Barco’s state-of-the-art display management software.
Optionally, the packages include Barco’s integrated IP video streaming for basic sensor and collaborative applications or Barco's TransForm family of video wall controllers to enable pixel-accurate display of multi-sensor information.
Barco’s planned display product and networked solution developments will be gradually integrated into its Instant VideoWall all-in-one bundles. Currently, the extension with Barco’s new HTML5 content aggregator (X2O) is in development, thus integrating the bundles in Barco’s comprehensive cross-campus visualization architectures.
Great image quality, unique innovations
The OverView OVD and KVD series, Barco’s new tiled LCD video walls, feature a number of innovations – including automatic color and brightness calibration (SenseX), optional external redundant power supply, Energy Star 6.0 compliance, and integrated IP video streaming – that ensure the highest uniformity across panels, optimize uptime, and reduce total cost of ownership.
A true customer-centric approach
“With the Instant VideoWall concept, we combine ultimate flexibility with ease of configuration,” says Lutz Nehrhoff Von Holderberg, General Manager Large Video Walls at Barco. “We put the customers in control of their configuration, perfectly answering their expectations and needs. Furthermore, the freedom these bundles offer also means that they can be upgraded with additional components and software when these become available. Our packages will thus become increasingly powerful and complete – always meeting the needs and expectations of the market.”
