Barco Control Assists China’s First Spacewalk

Publish date:

CHINA—Barco has assisted the Shenzou VII space programme by providing large screen projection for the command and control of China’s first spacewalk. Barco SLM R12+ projectors were used to command and control the entire launch program at both the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center and Beijing Aerospace Control Center. The monitoring continued through the duration of the spacewalk and concluded with its culmination, when the astronauts’ reentry module landed in central Inner Mongolia.

In addition to delivering a superior, advanced technology product in support of the event, Barco is also provided on-site technical standby around the clock via a specially assigned technical team.

The SLM R12+ is a powerful large-screen projector that offers three-chip DLP colors and a 12,000 ANSI lumens light output at a keen price-to-quality ratio. Its bright light output makes it suitable to operate even in venues with lots of other light sources.

“There’s no understating the importance of the Shenzhou VII launch and China’s aerospace program,” said Mr Xie, the Command and Control leader of Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. “From top to bottom, it needs to go off without any problems. In this sense, Barco has greatly contributed to the effort with its reliable products and highly professional support.”

“To participate in and provide support for the Shenzhou VII spacewalk is a true honor for Barco,” added Frank Christiaens, Managing Director of Barco China. “Product reliability is the crucial factor for customers choosing Barco. We’re always happy to be able to provide state-ofthe- art technical support in any and every way possible.”
