Barco Debuts 3-Chip WUXGA DLP Projector
Barco launched the RLM-W6, a three-chip DLP projector with WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution at the price of a single-chip DLP projector. The RLM-W6 sports a low noise level of 32dB, power consumption 33 percent lower than comparable systems, and 6,000 lumens of light output.
Barco last week launched the RLM-W6, a three-chip DLP projector with WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution at the price of a single-chip DLP projector, according to the company. Barco officials said the RLM-W6 sports a low noise level of 32dB (in Eco mode; 37bD in normal operation), power consumption 33 percent lower than comparable systems (700W at maximum input resolution), and 6,000 lumens of light output, making it a green, ergonomic choice for boardrooms, lobbies and auditoriums.
"We like to refer to our RLM-W6 as a 'three for one'-system," said Carl Rijsbrack, director of product and solutions management at Barco, in a statement. "For the price of a single-chip DLP system, you get a three-chip DLP projector with a better image quality and a very low noise level. This makes it a strong contender for meeting rooms, where you don't want to be interrupted by the drone of AV equipment, but its color quality also lets the RLM-W6 shine in environments such as lobbies or halls, where corporate branding has to be perfect."
The company did not, however, reveal the pricing.
The projector can be controlled through an IP-based software module, traditional control equipment, or free Barco projector fleet management software. It features a 2,000:1 contrast ratio in inputs for HDMI, Composite, S-Video, and RGBHV.
Barco said the RLM-W6 is also targeted at larger environments. "Its 6,000 lumens make the RLM-W6 suitable for auditoriums that need high-quality images at a good price," added Rijsbrack. "Similarly, its optional rigging and stacking frames ready the projector for various types of events where resolution and environmentally-friendly operations are major considerations."
