Full technical service provider Hawthorn has added Barco’s UDX-4K32 large-venue laser projector to its already extensive inventory of high-end projectors. Representing an investment of over £500,000, the company has added six of the units – the flagship of Barco’s UDX laser projector platform – to its fleet.
Launched last year, the UDX-4K32 provides 31,000 lumens of light output, 4K resolution, and the specification and performance of high-end laser projection in a compact and easily-transportable chassis. By featuring Constant Light Output (CLO) functionality, the UDX-4K32 also guarantees peace of mind by providing constant brightness and colour reproduction over time. On top of that, the UDX platform offers the widest colour spectrum in the industry. Without compromising on brightness, the UDX colour quality matches the renowned Xenon quality and outperforms the Rec. 709 colour space.
David Barton, Hawthorn’s group head of video, comments, “Our head office in Leicestershire was lucky enough to feature on the UDX demonstration tour when the range was first announced so I was able to experience the projector first hand. I was most impressed by the level of power consumption to brightness. Having a full 31,000 lumen output with consumption at less than 16amp is great news for both site installations and running costs, especially as there’s no compromise on colour or brightness.
“Laser projectors are a huge leap forward for the AV industry, both in terms of image quality and usability. Not only does laser projection deliver unparalleled colour reproduction and contrast levels, they are also much quieter and more compact than traditional lamp models.
“We’re committed to providing our clients with the latest equipment and with the Barco UDX-4K32 right at the forefront of laser technology, it was important for us to add it to our inventory.”
Hawthorn have also added a selection of Barco lenses to their stock including the pioneering 0.4 Ultra Short Throw, 1.16 – 1.49 Zoom and 1.5 – 2.0 Zoom lenses.
