The F12 SXGA+ Installation Projector with Wide Lens and High Brightness (MKII) Color Wheel from Barco is a professional installation projector adaptable to a range of use cases: simulation and training, small-to mid-sized venues, museums and visitor attractions, and more. The projector features a brightness of up to 4100 lumens (depending on settings) and has a native resolution of SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) and 4:3 aspect ratio. In addition to its native aspect ratio and resolution, through internal scaling, the F12 can accommodate a wide range of formats from 480p SD all the way up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200).

The F12 features connectivity to accommodate a variety of sources. There are HDMI and DVI inputs for HDTV and digital computer sources. There is a VGA port for analog computer sources or for integration with existing A/V installations. Plus, there are composite, component, and S-video inputs to cover most analog video sources, whether SD or HD. For local operation, an IR remote is included, and there is a 3.5 mm wired remote jack in case you want to connect an IR extender (available separately). In addition, a 12 V trigger port can automatically raise or lower a motorized screen when the projector is powered on or off. For remote operation, there is an Ethernet port that enables control across a local network, and there is an RS-232 port with loop-through for integration with automation systems, such as Crestron. Finally, there is a USB port for direct operation from a computer.

DLP Imaging System
The F12 features a DLP imaging device with a High Brightness (MKII) color wheel, which offers better contrast and color reproduction than many comparable LCD-based systems. Furthermore, DLP technology will not degrade when subject to UV light. This is further enhanced by VIDI technology from Philips, which helps maintain consistent image quality throughout the life cycle of the lamp.
The Right Color Wheel for Your Configuration
The F12 is available with a range of color wheel options, including High Brightness, Graphics, or VizSim, each with specific characteristics. As the VizSim color wheel focuses on color quality, it lowers color cross-talk and contamination, and reduces artifacting. The Graphics version offers a lower saturation but higher brightness for general AV use, and the High Brightness option provides high-brightness while retaining accurate color reproduction. This particular projector features the High Brightness (MKII) color wheel.
Low Frequency Maintenance Program
The Low Frequency Maintenance program can be set to automatically notify you of required service or maintenance. When running continuously, moving parts such as fans and color wheels require periodic replacement. The lifetime of any component other than the lamp is 8,000 hours or a year of non-stop operation.
Stereo 3D Support
The F12 features INFITEC EX 3D support, a stereoscopic 3D technology based on interference filters used in cinema projection and other professional visualization applications.
