The OverView KVD5521B is an improved and optimized version of Barco's 55" LCD video wall (KVD5521). The complete video wall produces a perfectly balanced image at all times, thanks to Sense X − Barco’s automatic, continuous and real-time color and brightness calibration system. The absence of cooling fans not only minimizes noise, but also means that no moving parts are used (which are susceptible to wear and have a limited lifetime). Plus, the introduction of DisplayPort V1.2, which enables feeding 4 displays in loop-through with 4K@60Hz content, is very important for easy connection with a limited number of cables.
To guarantee optimal uptime, the new video wall has a number of features to both prevent downtime and speed up servicing. The input boards and power supplies can be quickly removed from the display to be easily maintained or replaced. The use of LCD Connect makes it much easier to control the video wall, further enhancing user-friendliness.
“After having launched the award-winning Barco UniSee at the end of last year, Barco is taking a new step in transforming the LCD video wall market and expanding our portfolio,” says Chris Sluys, VP Operator Experience at Barco. “The modularity of a number of key components for easier servicing, more user-friendly control, and the possibility to introduce an external power supply to further guarantee uptime, all contribute to the system’s uptime and low cost of ownership. Barco’s service CarePacks offering ensures that the LCD video wall receives the best care for worry-free operation. As such, Barco evolves into a one-stop-shop supplier with an extended portfolio of LCD and rear-projection based video walls (for both mission-critical, high and mid end segment applications), and connectivity and workflow solutions.”
The OverView KVD551B is available worldwide as of April 2018.
