Blitz, leading audio visual provider to live events, has bolstered its fleet with an investment in six Barco HDX 4K20 FLEX projectors.
Designed for large-scale events, the cutting edge 4K projector presents a huge leap in projection picture quality.
The technology allows for projection in resolutions up to 3840 x 2400 pixels – around four times sharper than a 1080p HD projector and at a similar resolution to a premium cinema screen. This offers event organisers the opportunity to use much larger screens at their events for more impactful content, as well as the flexibility of shorter viewing distances, whilst achieving exceptional image quality.
Blitz purchased the first batch of manufactured projectors, with the first projectors rolling off the production line in early October.
Paul Hutton, Blitz managing director, commented, “There will be a significant increase in the requirement to display 4K images on events. Our purchase of the projectors is part of our investment in 4k ready equipment to meet our client’s needs.”
Carl Rijsbrack, Barco vice president events, added, “We’re thrilled Blitz are the first UK Rental & Staging partner to have added our HDX-4K20 FLEX projectors to their portfolio. We are confident the HDX-4K20 Flex projectors will ensure Blitz|GES can provide their customers with the highest quality and highest resolutions that are demanded, in a worry-free and future-proof way. We look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with Blitz|GES.”
The purchase follows the Blitz investment in widescreen 4K blending technology earlier this year with the expansion of its inventory of Barco E2 screen management systems.
