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.

Barco Zeus’s hermetically sealed DMDs and optical assembly guarantee outstanding reliability - and, thanks to our acclaimed analog color convergence mechanism, crisp images are maintained over time. Xenon lamps offer vibrant colors, and motorized high-contrast lens options ensure not just a perfect image but accurate ratios as well.

Not every projector can claim to be hand-built, Zeus can. Even though we are using state-of-the-art technologies for most processes – such as measuring, calibrating, assembling our electronics, and manufacturing the delicate optics and mechanics – every single step of the process is overseen by specifically trained professionals. Moreover, the assembly of vital parts is performed by hand. To guarantee ultimate quality at all stages of manufacture, our projectors do not travel down an automated production line.

Compact Design
Barco Residential Zeus is a compact, fully integrated digital cinema (DCI) projector designed for the most demanding cinemas in a home environment. He is much more than the average home cinema projector, drawing on our pedigree of digital cinema and post production excellence and refined to deliver less light output and more contrast on screens up to 6m wide. Our designers and engineers have worked tirelessly to retain the potent punch of DCI performance and couple it with new levels of refinement and accuracy.
