Barco Is Back In Black

KUURNE, BELGIUM-After stealing many headlines last year with the NX-4, the indoor tile that showcased its new black LED technology, Barco intends to raise the bar again at InfoComm 08 with a 6mm version of the tile, the NX-6.
Each NX-6 tile provides a 4200:1 contrast ratio and a calibrated output of 2,000 NIT, and each LED uses black silicon resin instead of white epoxy to achieve its visual clarity. For mounting, NX-6 tiles use the same Mag-frame as NX-4. Mag-frame is Barco's high-strength carbon fiber rental structure that uses magnets instead of screws to secure the tiles. In addition, a new "creative" option is being introduced that enables customers to create concave or convex curves with all NX tiles.

Also likely to capture the imagination is the DML-1200, Barco's take on the video-meets-lighting phenomenon. Described as a true digital moving luminaire, the DML-1200 has dual operating modes. In lighting mode, it offers all the functions customers expect in a moving light, including pan, tilt, color mixing, dimming, positional accuracy via DMX, and remarkable brightness-up to 12,000 field-lumens in a circular spot. In video mode, the DML-1200 has the same capabilities that customers expect from a Barco projector, including 10,000 lumens, SXGA+ resolution, sealed optics, liquid cooling, and a rugged design.

An optional media server can also be installed, which provides instant clip access and a superb range of optical effects that can be controlled from the lighting console.

Barco is emphasizing education in Las Vegas, with a series of classes on Image Processing Operations. In this course, students will learn how to successfully operate Barco Image Processing products in a single-screen environment. Products include ScreenPRO-II, the ScreenPRO-II Controller, ImagePRO, MatrixPRO, DCS-100, and the Encore series of controllers. Upon successful completion of this course, students will receive a Barco factory certification for Barco Image Processing Single-Screen Operations.

3D Is Back at NAB

by David Keene The last really big trade show I reported on this year was the ISE show in Amsterdam (Feb. 2-4), and from that floor I reported that there was a singular “the lack of buzz about 3D” (after all the buzz surrounding 3D at InfoComm last summer, CEDIA last September, and at CES in January).
