Barco launched at InfoComm three new HD projectors for rental and staging applications. The FLM HD18 and FLM HD14 answer the need for high brightness native HD projection in large venues, whereas the XLM HD30 is ideally suited for projecting HD images in ultra-wide-screen applications.

Realizing the variety of applications for widescreen HD projection, Barco had added two new members to its FLM family of compact, 3-chip DLPTM projectors, the FLM HD18 and FLM HD14.

The FLM HD18 delivers native HD (1920 x 1080) at an incredible 18,000 center lumens brightness output in a compact and lightweight chassis. The FLM HD18 boosts fully sealed optics and impressive lamp maintenance ensuring an overall lower cost of ownership.

The FLM HD14 with its 14,000 center lumens brightness output, is optimized for wide screen applications which demand not only high brightness but also extremely low noise and an ultra long lamp lifetime.

The lens range (TLD HB), of the industry leading Barco RLM and SLM projector series, can be re-used on the FLM series. Thanks to this feature, investment in new lenses is not necessarily compulsory.

Furthermore, both the FLM HD18 and FLM HD14 have exceptional video performance thanks to advanced 10 bit processing. Their exceptional brightness, compactness and near silent operation make them the perfect solution for a wide variety of applications where quality and high brightness cannot be compromised.

The third HD projector to be added is Barco's XLM HD30 which is ideally suited to ultra wide-screen and HD projections. Boosting an incredible light output of 30,000 center lumens, the XLM HD30 is the new standard for high brightness projection on the market today. Delivering native 2048 x 1080 resolution (DC2K) and featuring a fully sealed DMD engine, the XLM HD30 is built to work around the clock, making it ideal for use in the demanding rental & staging and large events markets. The XLM HD30 supersedes the HD25 version.
