Barco introduces smartest and brightest single-chip DLP projector

Press Release  |  Apr 18, 2005

The iD R600 is the right fit for extensive displaying applications, offering advanced picture-in-picture, SXGA+ and optional IP-functionality

Kortrijk, April 18, 2005 – Barco enters the 6000 lumen range, single chip DLP segment with the launch of its new, cost efficient iD R600 projector series, featuring a 1400 x 1050 high resolution canvas for the hotel, museum, corporate imaging, boardroom, conference and HOW markets. This new visualization solution is the right fit for intensive displaying applications. The advanced picture-in-picture functionality for displaying multiple sources, both video and data, ensures the flexibility to show multiple windows next to one another and to improve meeting efficiency.

This 6,000 ANSI lumen DLP projector generates a bright, true color, high-resolution video image on a 4:3 canvas, with a contrast ratio of 2000:1, resulting in the projection of high quality video & data images. Combined with the robustness of the device, the iD R600 is the perfect solution for high brightness, intensive use applications. The optional networking functionality of the iD Pro R600 enables remote helpdesk support and maintenance, improving the cost efficiency even to a further extent.

The advanced picture-in-picture capabilities and the optional networking functionality (pro-version) turn the iD Pro R600 into an interactive, collaborative meeting tool. The projector's user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) enables users to freely position and scale multiple window frames, using a mouse and keyboard, eliminating the need of the traditional remote control. The iD Pro R600, equipped with a powerful display server, can be easily connected to the user's network infrastructure. Linking several iDs to the network brings multi-windowing to multi-site meetings, with the ability to perform real-time interaction and file sharing. By eliminating the need for travel and accelerating the decision making process, business efficiency and as such productivity, will increase, resulting in a higher return on investment.

Additionally, Barco offers tailor-made solutions for panoramic, multi-screen applications, including built-in soft-blending and color-matching software.

The iD R600 will be available end of May at 15.995 Euros per piece. iD Pro R600 will be available in Q3.
