Barco Expands Range of Super Silent Three-Chip DLP Projectors

New RLM-W12 offers WUXGA resolution combined with low operating cost and power consumption.

Kortrijk, Belgium, 5 April 2012 – Barco, a world leader in projection technology, is proud to add a new member to its RLM family of very silent three-chip DLP projectors. Similar to its smaller W6 and W8 cousins, the new RLM-W12 offers WUXGA resolution (1920x1200) combined with low operating cost and power consumption. Thanks to its standard 3D capabilities, low noise level and 11,500 lumens light output, the RLM-W12 is a perfect fit for conference auditoriums, lecture halls, infotainment applications and event venues. The new projector will be commercially available from May 2012 onwards. “By adding a brighter unit to our RLM projector family, we can now cover the entire spectrum of silent projectors for fixed installations, ranging from 6,000 to 11,500 lumens light output,” says Alexis Skatchkoff, product manager at Barco. “In this way, we are better able to meet customer demands for more brightness out of compact projector systems.”

Active 3D

As the RLM-W12 comes with standard active 3D capabilities, easy play-out of 3D content is guaranteed. What's more, the RLM-W12's TLD lenses are fully compatible with Barco's range of HDX and FLM projectors. The new RLM-W12 is highly suitable for fixed installation in auditoriums and lecture halls, and, thanks to its optional ceiling mount and rigging stack, it can also be used for events.

Flawless image quality

The three-chip DLP RLM projector family generates crisp images with more stability, richer contrast and better color saturation. Thanks to its noise-reducing and power-saving design, the RLM consumes 33% less power than comparable projectors. They are also compatible with a wide range of traditional control devices as well as with the user-friendly Barco Projector Toolset software that allows you to easily control your projector, anywhere and anytime.
