Barco Medea UHD 4K DLP Laser Projector
Just as the mythical Medea flew in a golden chariot driven by dragons, our Medea will bring fantasy to life.
Painstakingly designed, optimised and manufactured in our European design centers, Medea delivers unprecedented performance in small to medium sized media rooms and dedicated home cinemas.
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
Barco Residential has a unique way to handle aspect ratio's within our 16:9 projectors. This feature is called warp to center. The change between aspect are instant.
Prospector is a lot more than a basic user interface. It offers a full overview of all the features you find inside the projector. It offers monitor options as well as setup options.
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
State of the art "Pulse" 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.
Barco’s RealColor processing enables simple and accurate calibration to your desired color gamut and white point.
Award winning DLP technology
Medea utilises the very latest 0.66" DMD from Texas Instruments which features a 5.4 Micron Micromirror Pitch and a ±17° Micromirror Tilt (Relative to Flat Surface). This technology allows us to display flawless 4K UHD (3,840 × 2,160 px) images.
Laser light source
Light on demand, allows you to adjust light output to match the time of day and/or content you’re viewing. Medea’s long laser lifetime means you can treat it like a TV, whilst still getting the big screen experience. 20,000 hours laser usage equates to 5 hours viewing every day for 11 years.
