Barco is expanding its projector portfolio with a cost-effective single-chip DLP projector that produces 12 000 centre lumens light output. The brand new RLS-W12 offers WUXGA resolution, extended warping and blending, and HDBaseT technology to provide video over a single Cat 5 cable. This new projector is a great choice for small- to medium-sized venues, and its optional rental frame makes it equally suited for the rental and staging market as well.

“Our RLS-W12 projector is a smart choice for customers who are looking for a cost-effective projector that delivers the brightness needed for large screens,’ comments Richard Marples, strategic market director Venues and Hospitality at Barco. “Following our RLM-W14 projector, which was launched September 2013, we’ve also integrated HDBaseT into the new RLS-W12 to satisfy growing market demand for this technology.’

Featuring both HDBaseT and BarcoLink technology, the RLS-W12 supports point-to-point transmission of video signals – up to WUXGA at 60 Hz – from source to projector, over distances of more than 70 metres, via a single Cat 5 cable or a single BNC cable. By eliminating the need for multiple expensive cables and connectors, these technologies provide greater simplicity, flexibility and lower installation costs.

The RLS-W12 can be easily controlled in multiple ways: via the new wired or wireless remote control, the projector control app for Android and iOS devices, and the user-friendly Barco Projector Toolset software. This software ensures simple operation and management of all Barco event projectors via one straightforward tool.
