Barco Expands Laser Portfolio with New Single-chip G100 Projectors

Barco announces the launch of its new G100 series projectors. The company says it expands its laser projection portfolio with a budget-friendly projector range that meets the high Barco quality standards and the customer requirements in terms of brightness, technical versatility and sustainability. The introduction of the three G100 models further strengthens and diversifies Barco's projector hardware offering for media-based attractions, like planetariums, theme parks, and smaller events.

The G100 is a single-chip projector with native WUXGA resolution and comes in three brightness variants: 16.000, 19.000, and 22.000 lumens. This high-brightness power enables advanced image quality to impress with pioneering projections both indoor and outdoor, the company says.

"The G100 is developed for those applications that require high brightness and powerful laser projection at an affordable price," says Richard Marples, sales enablement director immersive experiences at Barco. "With its outstanding price-performance ratio, these new models are a great addition to Barco's projection offering and the perfect fit for any creative project."

Up-to-date with the most recent technological needs and signal capabilities, the G100 supports all the latest input sources, including HDMI 2.0, to enable deep color palettes. The new projector series further stands out in the industry with a future-proof design and exceptionally low noise levels, the company says, which is an important differentiator for indoor installations especially.

To ensure full operational versatility and effortless implementation, Barco also brings a new extensive GC-lens range to the market for the G100 models, with throw ratios going from 0.38 up to 10.8, and a large shift capability. With the excellent onboard cooling the G100's can withstand a maximum ambient operating temperature of 50°C (122°F), the company says.

To conclude, the G100 projectors feature carefully selected components that lower the power consumption of the device, extend the light source lifetime, and, accordingly, limits the ecological footprint of the units. As a result, the ecoscoring team has granted the projectors an A-score and a Barco ECO product label.

Learn about Barco's newest projector in a free launch webinar on Tuesday, January 19, where the company will demo the new projector and share more details. Participants can reach out to the Barco experts with burning questions on the most recent addition to the portfolio. Book your seat here.
