Barco Launches SLM R12+ Projector at NAB

BARCO launched its new compact, powerful SLM R12+ projector, which is based on state-of-the-art DLP technology and delivers up to 11 500 ANSI Lumen, at NAB in Las Vegas last week.

Barcos new SLM R12+ projector, with its compact form-factor, SXGA+ resolution and 11500 Ansi Lumen light-output, delivers a higher light-output than any other projector in its size class available on the market today, according to Barco.

Specifically designed for use in demanding rental & staging environments, the SLM R12+ projector combines state-of-the-art DLP technology from Texas Instruments with Barcos expertise in electronics, optics and mechanical design, bringing to the market a new projector which delivers exceptional image quality and video performance.

The SLM R12+ features new generation SXGA+ DMD chip sets with a 12 degree tilt angle. The current TLD lens range for SLM projectors has been purposely designed to be future-proof and fully compatible with this new chip technology to achieve higher light output at higher contrast ratio levels. The customer therefore does not need to invest in new lenses to take advantage of the new technology in the SLM R12+. This projector is therefore the most cost effective solution for the rental & staging industry.

The new SLM R12+ is an extension of Barcos successful SLM Performer projector range, stated Steve Scorse, General Manager of Barco Events, adding: By focusing on optimum form factor and light-output, weve developed a projector which is compact yet can provide the levels of light output so often needed in a demanding industry. The fact that the SLM R12+ is also fully compatible with the TLD lens range makes this product a unique investment in its class.

Specifically designed with the needs of the rental & staging industries in mind, the SLM R12+ features a modular structure which allows greater access to serviceable parts, an interlocking design for direct stacking and hanging as well as an integrated, no-fuss rigging system, offering you an efficient, reliable product able to fulfill a multitude of purposes.
