Thanks to their 3D capability, these Barco DLP projectors are also perfectly fit for theme park dark rides and interactive experiences.

The highly-detailed 4K UHD images make no compromises on color to achieve brightness, while Barco Pulse and Single Step Processing reduce latency. The advanced cooling design extends the operating lifetime, and the lack of lamps saves on maintenance and consumables. This Barco projector is the perfect choice of projector with lens memoryIn terms of flexibility, all-glass lenses and wide shift ranges accommodate almost any projector configuration.

To achieve the low noise performance, Barco made optimal use of the unit’s internal space. The increased cooling surface enabled the fan speed to be reduced dramatically resulting in much lower noise. Barco also turned to advanced noise inspection tools, using noise cameras and spectrum analysis to optimize the noise timbre. F80s, including the F80-4K12, are so quiet, you can place this silent projector in the room without your audience noticing.
