Barco Balder HDR UHD 4K Projector
A divine force, bringing beauty and life to the most refined home cinema and media rooms.
A unique blue laser phosphor light engine developed by Barco.
Blue lasers are selected based on their high density and power efficiency.
Warp to Center
Unique to Barco Residential, Warp to Centre allows instant switching between different aspect ratios within our 16:9 projector models, eliminating the need for slow lens memory pre-sets.
Barco’s web interface: Prospector, provides quick and simple configuration and calibration of Pulse projectors, along with monitoring and diagnostic tools.
Warp and Blend
Warping is the process of digitally manipulating an image to compensate for alignment distortions. Blending allows multiple projectors to be seamlessly combined to create unique digital canvas solutions.
RealColor is Barco's proprietary color management system, enabling simple and accurate calibration to your desired color gamut or white point.
Low latency is desirable to achieve that smoother gameplay and user experience we all want, without input lag. If latency is >30ms, your gaming experience will be compromised, Barco’s latency is <20ms (including all image processing).
Professional grade optics
By basing Balder’s optical engine on it’s bigger brother Loki’s architecture, which features custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses, image quality is in a class of its own.
Topping that, Balder’s chassis and core are built from aluminium and magnesium, which offer exceptional robustness, resulting in the best picture quality ever shown at this level.
State of the art electronics
Our “Pulse” electronics are built on a superior FPGA platform, featuring a dual core processor on the industry’s only 20 nm SoChave, with 96 transceiver lanes delivering 3.3 Tbps of serial bandwidth.
Thanks to our unique single step processing technology (SSPTM), Pulse electronics are designed to process 4K UHD, HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2 and HDR10 signals with extremely low latency. This provides exceptional gaming and movie viewing experiences.
Laser light source
Outstanding image quality requires an exceptional light source, which is why Balder uses our brand-new laser engine which delivers up to 7,000 ANSI lumens output.
Alongside significantly improved image uniformity, lasers last longer than traditional projector lamps, offer great image quality consistence over their lifetime, are less fragile and offer near instant on/off performance.
Balder has departed from a pure fan based cooling system, opting instead for a liquid cooling PID regulation system. This combined with our simulation grade warp engine allows Balder to operate at any angle (free rotation), offering new possibilities when it comes to architectural integration.
