Today, Barco launches the RGB Laser ODL-821
, a new high-performing rear-projection cube for 24/7 critical control rooms. Powered by an RGB laser light source, this new model joins the ODL-721 range at the top of Barco’s rear-projection cube offering.
The bigger the better?
The larger screen size results in a lower cost per square meters/feet, and offers therefore a more cost-optimized video wall. On top of that, you also have fewer seams per surface area, which is for many applications in critical infrastructure markets, even more important. Although rear-projection cubes typically have smaller seams than tiled LCD video walls, the black raster can still be a burden to operators – especially when viewed under an angle. With an 80” screen, the image will look more balanced, with fewer interruptions.
All the advantages of lasers untouched
The new RGB Laser ODL-821 houses all the advantages RGB laser has to offer, but in a Full HD, 80” cube. This means you get high brightness, very long lifetime and reliability, great contrast ratio and low power consumption. The RGB Laser ODL-821 also features DisplayPort 1.2 connectivity support which means 4K@60 Hz loop-through is supported, so you only need one cable from the controller to the video wall to connect 4 cubes.
Is 80” better than 70”? No, it’s just different. Which screen size to select completely depends on your application and setup. If you want a larger screen for your money, you should go for 80”. But whatever you choose: Barco’s RGB Laser portfolio always offers the best image quality and the highest reliability, for many years to come!
