Barco Residential brings the pinnacle of image and sound technology to the high-end home environment. Together with our partners, we create unique experiences to be shared with loved ones in the world’s most exquisite homes and yachts. The state-of-the-art Barco Residential projectors are developed, manufactured, and treasured in our design centers in Belgium and Norway. They’re designed from the ground up with one goal in mind – to show the best possible images in any setting. From purpose-built lenses and optics, to custom-made electronics processing and boards, all parts are specially crafted. Our full glass lenses, for instance, are carefully selected so that we can guarantee their glass is of the best quality.

With 4K UHD resolution, 6,500 lumens of laser illumination and custom Barco Pulse electronics, Medea has been optimized to deliver unprecedented fun in small to medium-sized media rooms.

Professional-grade optics
Medea's optical engine architecture is nothing but world-class. It is built from custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses. The resulting Image quality is simply outstanding.

State-of-the-art electronics
All new “Pulse” electronics are built on a superior FPGA platform featuring a dual core processor on the industry’s only 20 nm SoChave, with 96 transceiver lanes delivering 3.3 Tbps of serial bandwidth. It has been designed to process 4K with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 and HDR10 with extremely low latency, thanks to our unique single step processing
technology. Barco’s RealColor processing enables simple and accurate calibration to any desired white point or greyscale.

Laser light source
Medea is packed with a brand new laser engine. Alongside significantly improved image uniformity, lasers last longer than traditional projector lamps, are not as fragile and offer nearly instant on/off. Light output is up to 6,500 lumens.
