Kortrijk, Belgium, 23 January 2023 – Barco, the world-leading manufacturer of digital projection and innovative visualization technologies, is proud to share a new milestone for its G-series as the sales numbers of the single-chip laser phosphor projectors has hit the symbolic mark of 10.000 units. The achievement is a momentous attestation to both the growth of immersive experiences and the sustained efforts of the company and its partners in bringing best-seller solutions for every budget.
The Barco G-series bring uncompromised laser phosphor projection with six cost-effective projectors between 7 and 22K lumens. With premium value at a very competitive pricing, the series opens up the possibilities to a wider range of applications to treat museum and theme park audiences to compelling experiences.
"Upon the launch of the very first G60, it was an immediate bestseller," says Frederik Bouckaert, Product Manager Projection at Barco. "As the platform continued to grow with the addition of new models like the G62 and the G100, so did the sales volumes, especially in the last year. We’re proud to now have 10.000 G-series projectors in the field with installations in prestigious award-winning projects like Culturespaces’ digital art exhibitions, Expo 2020 and Museum of the Future."
This growth can largely be attributed to the demand for engaging and interactive experiences in theme parks and museums, as well as the increasing popularity of digital art installations. And in this realm of immersive experiences, projectors play a crucial role. From large-scale projections on buildings and landmarks to smaller-scale installations in galleries and other cultural spaces, artists are using projection technology to create interactive, multi-sensory experiences that engage and inspire audiences.
Barco believes the demand for projectors in these markets is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, as more and more organizations and artists turn to projection technology to create unique and engaging experiences for their audiences. With the increasing affordability and versatility of projectors like the G62, it is likely that we will see even more innovative uses for this technology in the future.
