External warping, blending and color matching box for Barco Galaxy and HDQ 4K projectors

The MCM-400 HFR serves as input processor on Barco’s Galaxy/HDQ 4K series projectors allowing geometry correction, color correction, brightness monitoring and electronic blending . By using a real-time on-screen user interface, the MCM-400 HFR helps achieve the performance known from Barco’s higher end 4K simulation projectors. In this way, this box enables several multi-channel configurations with multiple 4K projectors.

Suited for mono and 3D-stereo sources

The MCM-400 HFR handles both mono and stereo sources up to 60 Hz. Native 4K Active or passive stereo sources are converted into an active flicker-free stereo signal up to 120 Hz.

Four DisplayPort inputs allow 4K sources to be connected in 4 quadrants of 2048 by 1080 pixels, or two columns of 2048 by 2160 pixels, which simplifies pre-view capabilities. Both mono (including encrypted HDCP content) and stereo sources are shown synchronously with the input, at a minimum delay.

Easy to control

The MCM-400 HFR can be controlled by means of an IR remote with an on-screen menu, or through IP. The latter allows easy integration with touch panels for convenient source switching and different geometry files.

Suitable for all environments:

  • Larger collaboration rooms, both flat and curved
  • 3D visualization as used in automotive, oil & gas, scientific research and urban planning
  • Multi channel blended rental & staging applications
  • High resolution command and control displays
