Barco brings home gold at the 20th AV Awards

Barco is excited to announce success at the 20th AV Awards! The annual event took place on 28 September 2018 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Excellence across the audiovisual industry was recognized and celebrated. Barco’s Unisee was nominated for Display Product of the Year and was thrilled to bring home gold for Projector of the Year (8,000 + Over) with UDX laser projector.
Barco UDX laser projector—Projector of the Year (8,000 + Over) 2018 winner

Barco’s UDX laser projector has been taking the events world by storm. UDX was designed for the rental industry, in collaboration with the rental industry—a partnership that resulted in the most compact and convenient 32,000-lumen, 4K laser projector on the market.

UDX projectors deliver breathtaking visuals and light shows, all from a compact unit that is easy to install and run. The brightness and resolution are exquisite; dazzling 4K images at 120 Hz (able to support 3D) capture the eye and the imagination. The Constant Light Output function ensures the high quality of the images remains constant over time—for the lifetime of the product, which has set new standards at 25,000 hours. UDX projectors have been used in large-scale productions all over the world and are already available in most large rental houses thanks to customer demand.

Barco UniSee—Display Product of the Year 2018 nominee

Barco UniSee is a revolutionary LCD video-wall system that amazes and astounds. Its impressive features have seen it receive resounding positive feedback since its launch in October 2017, including the prestigious Red Dot Award for presentation technology.

It’s no surprise this game-changing video wall is turning heads all over the world. Barco UniSee is a modular platform that combines three unique building blocks—UniSee View, UniSee Mount and UniSee Connect—to create a high-definition, seamless viewing experience that is completely bezel-less, easy to install and a cinch to maintain. And the user-friendly control manager means it’s easy to set up and control the entire video wall as if it were a single screen.


Partners of the highest caliber


Barco partners were also in the spotlight at the AV Awards. We’d like to offer our congratulations to Hawthorn—Live Event of the Year award winners for the Adobe Summit EMEA 2018. And to 7thSense Design—Leisure and Hospitality Project of the Year winners for The Egg at XI Gallery, New York. Last but not least, we also want to congratulate Midwich, who received the Distributor of the Year award. It is an honor and a pleasure to partner with such innovative businesses and we look forward to future collaborations.

A bright future ahead
