Barco claims that its super long-lasting UniSee video wall platform will “redefine the market” for years to come. With its “No gap” technology, where the inter-tile gap is almost invisible from normal viewing distances, UniSee is said to “surpass all other offerings currently available on the market”.
Barco UniSee is based on a modular platform, with individual in-house designed and produced LCM panels fitted onto an innovative mounting system that is “powered by gravity”. Designed for high-end meeting rooms, lobby and reception areas, experience centres and control rooms, the entire LCD video wall is completely bezel-less, creating a seamless viewing experience.
The mounting system, which is said to ensure perfect alignment of the LCM panels, also hosts all input and power modules resulting in significantly reduced set-up and maintenance requirements for installers.
Barco is already the worldwide leader in the rear projection video wall market, holding a market share of 44% in EMEA and 39% in the Americas. For LCD video walls, Barco has an 18% market share in both EMEA and the Americas, putting it in the top three in the market. “The launch of this groundbreaking new product will give a significant boost to Barco in this market, enabling it to challenge for market leadership and secure double-digit growth across several verticals.”
George Stromeyer, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Barco Enterprise division, said: “Barco has made material investments in LCD, positioning the company for growth in the LCD-video wall market for the coming years. We are very proud of the Barco UniSee product, which will become our flagship LCD video wall platform from here on in. It fits firmly within our ambitious growth strategy, strengthening our position as a technology leader in visualization solutions by raising the bar for the LCD video wall market.”
UniSee has a 55” active display area with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), and a typical brightness of 800 cd/m2 and a 100,000-hour lifetime (said to be around 67% longer than most mainstream solutions).
