Barco displays stunning new products at CCBN 2012

Barco, a world leader in visualization solutions, shows its OVL-708 video wall and several of its latest display products at the ‘China Content Broadcasting Network 2012’ exhibition in Beijing’s prestigious China International Exhibition Center from 21 – 23 March. The CCBN trade show – the largest broadcasting technology and equipment expo in the Asia-Pacific region – is one of the most influential trade shows in the broadcasting and TV industry. This year, Barco is showcasing its OVL-708 LED-lit projection system, the latest member in the successful OVL series of Barco video walls. Enhanced with a liquid cooling system, the OVL-708 lifts LED illumination to a new level of brightness. In addition, the system features Sense6, a unique auto-calibration technology that provides brightness and color stability over time and across the entire display. This means that manual adjustments and maintenance are no longer needed. End-users Shandong TV station and Hunan economic TV station, which have recently installed the OVL-708 LED-lit projection system in their television studios, have given very positive feedback.

Barco will also exhibit several new products designed for the rental and staging market. ImagePro-II is an advanced, high-performance all-in-one video scaler, scan converter and switcher. On the LED side, there is the C5, the newest member of the C Series, which is renowned for being light-weight, easy to install, silent and power efficient. In addition to these outstanding qualities, the C5’s powerful DX-based image processing offers outstanding image quality and ease of use.
