Kortrijk, Belgium, 22 April 2021 – Barco, a global leader in professional visualization solutions, announces the next generation of its OverView range LCD video walls. The new OverView LVD-5521C and OverView KVD-5521C evolve the existing Overview LCD range – which complements the premium Barco UniSee platform. The video walls can now be remotely monitored and controlled, and support 4K streaming content. These (and more) new features make this series even more suitable for a wider range of applications, including control rooms, broadcast studios, corporate lobbies, experience centers and boardrooms.
The new OverView LVD-5521C and OverView KVD-5521C are 55" 500-nit LCD video walls, of the 1.8 mm (ENB) and 3.5 mm (UNB) seam generation respectively. This next generation Overview LCD range again stands out visually within the entry and mid-range video walls market, as it offers Barco's signature innovative Sense X algorithm, the unique automatic and continuous color and brightness calibration system, that always ensures a perfectly balanced image across the entire video wall.
Remote video wall management and broader market reach
Barco's new OverView LVD-5521C and OverView KVD-5521C use the Video wall Manager software, which makes it easy to install, configure and control the video wall. Ease of operation is now even more pronounced with the new Video wall Management Suite, a cloud-based remote monitoring, diagnostics and control solution for Barco video walls. It offers AV system integrators and managed service providers the possibility to remotely manage the complete installed base from a central location. This not only lowers operational costs, but also ensures faster and more effective troubleshooting and increased customer satisfaction.
The next generation Overview LCD series supports the latest encrypted 4K streaming content, which is important for markets such as corporate lobbies and experience centers, but also control rooms. The product haze levels also allow to deploy in applications where reflections need to be carefully managed, such as broadcast.
More than ever 'standing out through value'
"This new Overview LCD video wall range offers customers again a great viewing experience and more value for money", says Gerrit Vermeire, Director Product Management at Barco. "Together with our rear-projection cubes and direct-view LED solutions, we have a full video wall portfolio, making Barco the leading display solution provider. The accompanying service packs and Barco's content management hardware and software, allows Barco to offer complete visualization systems that deliver years of worry-free operation reconfirming our commitment to our target markets."
The OverView LVD-5521C and OverView KVD-5521C will start shipping from July 2021 onwards.
