A divine force, Barco Balder brings beauty and life to the most refined home cinema and media rooms. Manufactured to perfection in Norway, Balder is forged from the finest components such as aluminium and glass. Balder not only shares the same Ultra HD and HDR 10 compatible electronics as his big brother Loki, the optical design and new single laser engine are also derived from the Loki platform.
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’s frame and core is built in Aluminium, 37kg of pure quality. the result is the best picture quality ever shown at this level.
All new “Pulse” electronics have been designed to process 4K with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 and the optical engine is utilising the very latest 0,9-inch DMD DLP chipset, delivering 3,840 x 2,160 pixels on screen. Loki also features HDR, motorised lenses and auto aspect detection 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 lumens.
