Barco LiveDots expands LED product range

Barco LiveDots, a Barco company, is expanding its LED range with three new products: a 5.5 mm pitch black face indoor LED display, an 8 mm outdoor SMD LED display system, and a single-piece outdoor LED billboard. All three innovations will be showcased at ISE in Amsterdam RAI, from 31 January to 2 February 2012.

“Our LED product range consists of three platforms covering a wide spectrum of applications. The X-series is our premium product line, offering unprecedented image quality; the T-series is dedicated to 24/7 operation for branding and advertising applications where total cost of ownership is key; while the C-series is our mid-end offering, providing Barco image quality at an attractive pricepoint for both event and permanent installations,” says Carl Rijsbrack, CMO of Barco LiveDots. “We are happy to introduce a new product for each of these platforms – this will enable us to meet our customers’ needs even better.”

The cross-rentable CX-8, which offers excellent contrast and image quality, is the first true high-resolution outdoor LED display for the rental and staging industry. Thanks to its modular design and low weight, the CX-8 is simple to install and service. It features auto-calibration and auto-redundancy to guarantee worry-free operation. Furthermore, its sea-worthy standard makes the CX-8 highly suitable for cruise ship installations, in addition to event and retail applications.

The C5 is the latest addition to the C-series. A 5.5 mm pitch black face indoor LED display for rental and fixed install, the C5 offers a 10% resolution premium over established 6 mm products on the market. Other significant technical features include a flown weight of less than 40 kg per m², integral concave and convex curving, no fans (resulting in silent operation) and, most importantly, Barco’s network-to-network interface, which allows full integration with the DX-700 processing unit.

The Digital City Posters are part of Barco’s T-series and come in two variants: the DCP-0710 has a

surface area of 6.8 m² and a resolution of 300×216 pixels, while the DCP-0810 has a surface area of 8 m² with a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Thanks to Barco’s proprietary color signature technology, the DCP-0710 and DCP-0810 deliver an excellent balance between brightness and contrast, guaranteeing exact reproduction of brand colors at all times. The Digital City Posters provide powerful imagery in combination with 24/7 reliability and a low cost of ownership. With less power consumption and a lighter weight than similar products, they are a perfect fit for advertising and branding applications.

Barco’s new LED displays will be presented at Integrated Systems Europe 2012 in the Amsterdam RAI, from 31 January to 2 February 2012. You will find Barco in Hall 11, booth #11H65.
