Barco Balder 16:9 Projector

Manufactured to perfection in Belgium, Balder features the finest components such as aluminium and glass. Balder not only shares the same Ultra HD and HDR compatible electronics with the higher-end Loki models, the optical design and new single laser engine are also taken from the Loki platform.

Professional grade optics

By basing Balder’s optical engine on it’s bigger brother Loki’s architecture, custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses, image quality is in a class of its own. To top that, Balder is built in aluminium, 37kg of pure quality. the result is the best picture quality ever shown at this level.

State of the art electronics

All new “Platinum” electronics have been designed to process 4K with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2, while the optical engine utilises the very latest 0.9" DMD DLP chipset, delivering 3,840 x 2,160 pixels on screen.

Balder also features HDR10, motorised lenses and a function to swap between 16:9 and cinemascope. Featuring Barco’s unique RealColor processing, Balder enables simple and accurate calibration to any desired white point or greyscale.

Laser light source

Outstanding image quality also requires an exceptional light source. Which is why we have packed Balder with a brand new laser engine. Alongside significantly improved image uniformity, lasers last longer than traditional projector lamps, are not as fragile and offer nearly instant on/off. Light output is up to 7,000 ANSI lumens.

Liquid cooling

Balder has departed from a pure fan based cooling system to a liquid cooling PID regulation system, allowing Balder to operate in any angle.
