Barco just expanded and improved the UniSee line of LCD video wall displays. You may recall that UniSee claims the world’s smallest optical seam, and almost eliminating the “black raster” that traditionally borders the content shown on LCD video walls. Now that the platform has been completely redesigned, Barco says the new UniSee has improved image quality, installation precision, serviceability and reliability. The new Unisee 500 also has a lower brightness spec of 500 nits vs. the original’s 800 nits, which reduces the cost.
The new Barco UniSee 500 still features the UniSee Mount that automatically aligns the video wall and keeps it aligned over time (using the power of gravity). Barco says it provides the best image uniformity in the market, using the Sense X automatic color and brightness calibration. But the Barco UniSee 500 also includes some new features; for example, setup and maintenance can now be performed faster and more efficiently using the upgraded UniSee Connect module. A wizard guides the user through the complete installation process and the individual panels are automatically recognized in the right position in the video wall. The new local dimming feature allows for higher contrast, lower radiated heat and reduced power consumption.
Also, the Unisee 500 has optional touch overlays for interactivity, trim solutions for integration in differing environments, additional mounting structures to allow for free-standing setups, and a new curved mounting solution that makes it possible to have a concave (or convex) video walls.
Here are all the specs of the new UniSee 500.
