Balder CinemaScope 5K UHD Projector: Ultimate Home Cinema Experience

Cutting-Edge Technology and Design

The Balder CinemaScope 5K UHD Projector incorporates Barco's unique PULSE electronics platform, an in-house designed laser engine, and the finest optical components available. Utilizing DLP technology, preferred by 9 out of 10 professional cinemas, Balder delivers unparalleled image quality.

Superior Professional-Grade Optics

Built on the robust architecture of Loki CinemaScope, Balder features custom-designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low-dispersion glass lenses. Its chassis and core, crafted from aluminum and magnesium, ensure exceptional durability and picture quality, setting a new standard in home cinema projection.

State-of-the-Art Electronics

Balder's Pulse electronics leverage our unique single-step processing technology (SSPTM), capable of processing 4K UHD, HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2, and HDR10 signals with extremely low latency. This ensures smooth and immersive viewing experiences.

Advanced DLP Chipset

Balder CinemaScope uses the latest 0.9" DMD DLP chipset to display flawless 5K UHD (5,120 × 2,160 px) images with a 2.37:1 aspect ratio. This technology guarantees crystal-clear visuals for movies, games, and other content.

Versatile CinemaScope Features

Balder's unique aspect ratio detection system automatically crops and scales content to fit screen areas from 1.78:1 to 2.39:1. Manual cropping is available for custom configurations, such as preserving subtitles while removing top black bars in non-1.78:1 content, enhancing the viewing experience.

Efficient Liquid Cooling System

Departing from traditional fan-based cooling, Balder employs a liquid cooling PID regulation system. This innovative cooling solution, combined with a simulation-grade warp engine, allows Balder to operate at any angle (free rotation), providing new possibilities for architectural integration.

Key Features:

  • Pulse Electronics Platform: Advanced processing with low latency.
  • Professional-Grade Optics: Custom aspherical glass elements and low-dispersion glass lenses.
  • DLP Chipset: Latest 0.9" DMD DLP for flawless 5K UHD images.
  • CinemaScope Aspect Ratio: Automatic cropping and scaling for various screen formats.
  • Liquid Cooling: Efficient liquid cooling system for versatile installation.
