Barco has launched the RLM-W6, the world’s first three-chip DLP® projector with a WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution at the price of a single-chip DLP® projector. With an extremely low noise level of 32dB, a power consumption 33% lower than comparable systems and a 6,000 lumens light output, it is a green, ergonomic and cost-conscious choice for boardrooms, lobbies and auditoriums.
Barco’s RLM-W6 premiers the superior colour saturation and image stability of three-chip DLP® technology in applications hitherto mostly reserved for single-chip DLP® systems. In addition to its low price, the RLM-W6 offers a minimal total cost ownership due to its low energy consumption. In terms of ergonomics, its near-silent noise level is a significant improvement over competing three-chip DLP® systems.
The RLM-W6′s WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution gives it the versatility to display a wide array of sources. This includes the possibility to display video content in native HD with unobtrusive banners, news tickers or subtitles, as well as full compatibility with the latest generation of laptops. The projector can be controlled through an intuitive IP-based software module, traditional control equipment or free Barco projector fleet management software.
“We like to refer to our RLM-W6 as a ‘three for one’-system,” comments Carl Rijsbrack, Director Product and Solutions Management at Barco, “For the price of a single-chip DLP® system, you get a three-chip DLP® projector with a better image quality and a very low noise level. This makes it a strong contender for meeting rooms, where you don’t want to be interrupted by the drone of AV equipment, but its color quality also lets the RLM-W6 shine in environments such as lobbies or halls, where corporate branding has to be perfect.”
Barco’s RLM-W6 is targeted at larger environments as well. “Its 6,000 lumens light output makes the RLM-W6 suitable for auditoriums that need high-quality images at a good price,” adds Mr. Rijsbrack. “Similarly, its optional rigging and stacking frames ready the projector for various types of events where resolution and environmentally-friendly operations are major considerations.”
