Barco E2

4K screen management system

Overview

The E2 presentation system provides superior image quality, exceptional input and output density, great expandability and durability. Supporting native 4K input and output, it is the first and only screen management system on the market that can manage a 4K projector blend with refresh rates up to 60Hz. A truly versatile system, it offers eight mixable PGM outputs and four scaled Aux output for full show control with a single box.

Native 4K input and output
With native 4K input and output, the E2 provides impressive pixel processing power. Whether native or scaled inputs, two connectors or four, this HDCP-compliant system manages it all. With 28 inputs and 14 outputs (eight PGM, two Multi-viewer and four scaled Aux outputs), the E2 system offers full show control, including eight independent PIP mixers and a dedicated Multiviewer. Thanks to its linkable chassis, it can easily expand beyond these eight outputs without the need for additional external processing and routing to distribute the signals. And as its inputs and layers can also be extended, the E2 is even capable of managing a blend of up to 32 4K projectors.

Simple servicing and control
The E2 comes with a straightforward cross-platform user interface that provides touchscreen ergonomics. As the presets are stored on the chassis it enables easy control via third-party systems. Multiple users can control the system simultaneously, and the API allows third-party developers to create custom control programs and interfaces. Thanks to its modular design, users can simply add a new input or output card to support future signal interfaces. This modularity also ensures great serviceability, as users can easily swap a specific input or output card in the case of damage, without needing to ship or replace the entire box.
