Barco NV is a technology company that develops sight, sound, and sharing solutions to help professionals work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Its focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (from meeting and control rooms to corporate spaces), Healthcare (from the radiology department to the operating room), and Entertainment (from movie cinemas to live events and attractions).
From its early origins building high-end radios in those beautifully crafted wooden cabinets that were genuine works of art in the home, Barco became a technology leader in state-of-the-art professional visualization for a wide range of applications such as Digital Cinema. Today 40% of cinema screens are equipped with Barco’s projectors.
Celebrating Barco’s unique 80-year legacy, Barco Residential has returned to its origins by bringing the very pinnacle of image and sound technology to the high-end home cinema, creating unique experiences to share with your loved ones.
Based on Barco’s unrivaled technology leadership, innovation & craftsmanship, Barco Residential products and technologies are custom-designed and built in Barco’s European Design Centers in Belgium and Norway, for the world’s highest quality level in image and sound. We are proud to be approved in the international network of Barco dealers to sell and supply their home cinema projectors.
