Barco Projectors

Barco Residential brings the pinnacle of image technology to luxury private cinemas. Their state-of-the-art products and technologies are designed, developed and manufactured in house in Belgium and Norway.

They are designed from the ground up with one goal in mind – to create the best possible digital canvases that enable the most immersive entertainment experiences for cinema lovers in the world’s most exquisite private home cinemas.

Why choose Barco Residential projectors

All Barco projectors are built to very high standards and are considered to be professional grade video components which will stand the test of time. Barco is committed to providing ongoing support and software upgrades for all home cinema models as advancements in software and image processing become available, making your new projector a long term investment for your home cinema.

As a high-grade video display device, Barco projectors also work perfectly with all Lumagen and madVR HDR video processors for even more beautiful and lifelike image quality. Features on these processors such as HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping and Auto Aspect Ratio control only improve the viewing experience further beyond what is offered by Barco.

Native CinemaScope Lens and Chipset

Most movies in commercial theatres that are released today are in 2.39:1 format, commonly referred to as Cinemascope. Enabling a true cinematic experience, Barco Residential is unique in offering true CinemaScope projectors for the residential market.

The CinemaScope series projectors have a unique automatic aspect ratio detection function. It will detect the content aspect ratio and automatically scale the image to fit the required resolution in this case 5120 x 2160 and of course change back to 16:9 (3840×2160) if you have content in that format. Where required, you can manually override the auto aspect detection/switching system and recall a specific, or custom format of your choosing.

DCI-P3 Deep Colour Saturation

The standard for domestic home cinema for decades has been the REC 709 colour space as seen on TV, DVD and HD Blu-ray discs. Barco Residential Projectors expand on this to provide the DCI-P3 colour space used in commercial cinema and on all 4K UHD movies. DCI-P3 has a 26% larger colour gamut than REC709 and offers increased saturation and colour depth, making images appear more lifelike and brighter on screen. Further up in the Barco model range the colour space is pushed even further to include the REC2020 colour space for industry leading colour depth.

RGB LED and Laser Light Source

Unlike conventional lamp-based projectors, the Barco BRAGI utilises an LED Light Engine and all other models feature a Laser Light Source which offers increased run-time and usability without the need for servicing or replacing bulbs. Combine this with the impressive DCI-P3 colour space and our eyes are tricked to interpret the colours on-screen as richer and brighter than they are physically measured.

Featuring throughout some of the world’s best high-end home cinema projects, Barco projectors offer industry-leading CinemaScope image quality and a rich deep colour gamut for small home theatre rooms up to the largest high-end home cinema screens.
