Four new UDX projectors offer more lumens in compact format for live events

As an innovative technology company, Barco is constantly searching for solutions to bring new capabilities to the event industry. Two years ago the company released both the extreme XDL and the revolutionary UDX-series. The UDX-32K was the world’s most compact high-brightness laser projector. Until now, because the company is further expanding this exceptional platform with a 40,000-lumen version. Same format, more lumens.

Since the launch of the UDX-series in March 2017, Barco has unleashed more than 50 million lumens on the business. Partners from all over the world have shown their trust in the projectors for unbelievable projections on some of the most iconic locations. In Tibet, Lhasa, for example, eight UDXs were used for an inspiring projection mapping on a temple at an impressive height of 5,000 metres. Thanks to its ruggedness, the compact series is preferred by event partners in the music industry. The announcement of Britney Spears new Vegas tour or the Night of the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall were all supported by the unbelievable UDX. The installations in famous sports stadiums, like the Paris la Defense Arena, and various theme parks have shown that the projectors flexibility is also a perfect fit for the fixed AV market.

Now Barco is adding four more UDXs, two 26K and two 40K units, to complete the offer to their wide audience of users. The series never compromises on colour, lifetime or brightness. On the contrary, with its 40,000 lumens the UDX-40K is now the brightest projector under 100kg/200lbs. The unique FLEX2 feature ensures partners to get even more out of their investment. It allows users to regulate and adapt the brightness and resolution to their specific needs. This means fewer projectors are now needed to cover a wider range of brightness levels and resolutions.

These recent additions also keep the same proof points as their predecessors. The resolution reaches 4K UHD, matching the widest colour spectrum compared to other laser phosphor projectors in the market. Latency is kept at its lowest due to the Single Step Processing technology. And thanks to the Barco Pulse electronics the projectors have a recognizable user-friendly interface.
