Global technology company Barco has launched a new LCD video wall platform. Barco UniSee is based on a modular platform, with individual in-house designed and produced LCM panels fitted onto a mounting system that is powered by gravity.
For those that rely on visualisation technology – for example, high-end meeting rooms, lobby and reception areas, experience centres and control rooms – Barco UniSee will provide unrivalled performance, said the company. The entire LCD video wall is completely bezel-less, creating a seamless viewing experience. The mounting system, which ensures perfect alignment of the LCM panels, also hosts all input and power modules resulting in significantly reduced set-up and maintenance requirements for installers, IT professionals and facilities managers.
George Stromeyer, senior vice president and general manager, Barco Enterprise division, said, “Barco has made material investments in LCD, positioning the company for growth in the LCD-video wall market for the coming years. We are proud of the Barco UniSee product, which will become our flagship LCD video wall platform from here on in. It fits firmly within our ambitious growth strategy, strengthening our position as a technology leader in visualisation solutions by raising the bar for the LCD video wall market.”
Barco UniSee platform has several key features such as NoGap technology, which makes the inter-tile gap almost invisible from normal viewing distances. UniSee Mount uses gravity to self-align the LCD tiles, which slide into place in any direction along the X, Y and Z axes and allows easy undocking of the panels in case servicing is required. ‘Sense X’ continuous, real-time colour and brightness calibration system ensures a perfectly balanced image at all times, with no variation between centre and edges. UniSee Connect software platform automatically assigns and calibrates the panels and acts as a single point of connection for remote diagnostics and control.
Technical specifications of the product are 55-inch active display area with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) It features typical brightness of 800 cd/m2, with minimal haze level (< 44%). It has 100,000 lifetime (around 67% longer than most mainstream solutions) and is VESA compliant.
One of Barco’s most recent high-profile LCD video wall installations took place in Saudi Arabia, where Barco installed a 334-panel LCD wall in the briefing room and mezzanine floor of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh, inaugurated by the President of the United States in May 2017.
