Barco Residential brings the pinnacle of image technology to the high-end home environment.
Barco's state-of-the-art projectors are designed and manufactured in their design centres located in Belgium and Norway. They’re designed from the ground up with one goal in mind – to show the best possible images in any setting.
From purpose-built lenses and optics, to custom-made electronics processing and boards, all parts are specially crafted.
Manufactured to perfection in Norway, Barco Balder 16:9 brings beauty and life to the most refined home cinema and media rooms.
5K 21:9 CinemaScope HDR LED Projector
With 4K UHD resolution, 5,500 lumens of laser illumination and custom processing, Barco Residential's "Medea" home theatre projector has been optimised to deliver unprecedented fun in small to medium-sized rooms.
Barco is the only manufacturer in the world that offer true CinemaScope projectors for the residential market. Our CinemaScope technology have a unique automatic aspect ratio detection function.
It will analyse the incoming source and detect the aspect ratio which we call "Content Aspect Ratio" and automatically scale the image to fit the 2560x1080 or 5120x2160 resolution depending on model and of course change back to 16:9 (1920x1080/3840x2160 depending on model) if you have content in that format.
It will also change aspect ratio when a scope format movie has a menu’s outside the active picture frame. You can also switch manually between the different formats. It also allows for manually setting the aspect ratio you would like to use.
Barco Residential is much more than the creator of the world’s best projectors for the finest home theatres and media rooms. We bring innovative visual experiences to all areas of the finest residences, combining technology leadership with architecture and interior design.

Barco Residential are the makers of the world’s first and only integrated laser 6P 4K 3D projection solution for Home Cinema. In order to reliably achieve long lifetime at brightness levels twice that of xenon projectors, a sophisticated control system actively cools both laser modules and the DMD engine, providing a predictable 30,000-hour lifetime with at least 80% of the initial brightness.
Thanks to Barco’s industry-leading technology to minimise laser speckle, we are able to provide superior 2D and 3D images on both white and silver screens.
6P laser projection constantly delivers the highest levels of contrast, the widest colour gamut and superlative image uniformity and sharpness.
Sealed optical engines are a hallmark of Barco’s DCI level projectors. Thanks to the patented, hermetically-sealed enclosure in our 'Cinema at home' projectors, dust cannot reach the DLP® chip, which ensures many years of undiminished brightness and contrast levels.
Barco Residential projectors are not only accurately calibrated when they leave our factory, our colour management system allows you to calibrate them, simply and precisely, to a desired white point or greyscale as well.
The system enables you to perform the necessary colour management adjustments yourself to create the best visual experience in any situation.
