Barco Virtual World opens at AED Studios

Barco's high-brightness HDX-W20 projector.

28 February 2014

Belgium - Barco and AED Studios, part of AED group, have officially inaugurated 'Barco Virtual World', a virtual experience events hall at the site of AED Studios in Lint, Belgium. The 1.000sq.m hall is equipped with 10 of Barco's high-brightness HDX-W20 projectors and a 90m long screen - the largest in the Benelux region - to provide an immersive virtual experience in full HD.

A longstanding customer of Barco, the AED group purchased the renowned Eurocam Mediacenter in 2013, renaming it AED Studios. The 55,000sq.m site is home to an extensive range of film studios (45sq.m < 3000sq.m), each offering an enormous array of multifunctional possibilities. "The studios perfectly complement our rental, sales, repair, logistics and leasing businesses," says Glen Roggeman, CEO of AED Studios. "When buying the studios, we immediately dreamt of converting one of the halls into a unique 'Virtual experience' space, in order to underscore our commitment to state-of-the-art AV technology. It was only logical to team up with Barco, the world leader in projection technology."

As a technical partner to the project, Barco will provide AED Studios with visualisation equipment, including HDX-W20 projectors, LCD displays and digital signage media servers. The projectors, which each offer 20,000 lumens of light output, project images onto a 90-meter-long screen with a total of 17,000 pixels. Thierry Heldenbergh, managing director of AED Display: "The set-up allows us to offer highly immersive projection at the highest possible resolution. Consequently, Barco Virtual World is the ideal location for organizers of corporate events, congresses, meetings, live television programs, etc. who are looking for ways to provide an out-of-the-ordinary experience. They can use either our standard HD content or shoot their own images and display these - either way, they're sure to leave the audience in awe."
