Barco has announced the launch of Barco RigiFlex, a brand-new rigid yet very flexible powerwall screen that combines excellent visual performance with easy transportation, installation and maintenance.
An interesting alternative to fixed powerwall: this is, in a nutshell, Barco RigiFlex. Rear-projection is the mainstream projection mode in the virtual reality market. However, rigid screens are typically rather compact, smaller than the total required surface. The screen is therefore spliced, and the welding lines impede the visual sense of immersion. Moreover, installing such a screen can be challenging and time-consuming. Depending on the size of the screen, you may need special equipment to transport and install it.
That is the challenge we address with Barco RigiFlex. This new screen features a flexible surface which can be completely rolled up (so it can be easily brought inside any building), and is available in any size – up to 10 x 4 meters. Meanwhile, it has similar quality specifications as the top glass screens.
Barco RigiFlex uses innovative woven high polymer fabric and is less than 1 mm thick. This makes the product extremely light, as the weight per square meter is only about 0.5 kg. Equipped with an aluminum frame, Barco RigiFlex issues extremely high tension on the surface, ensuring toughness and stability. The screen will not vibrate, even when there is strong indoor ventilation. It also does not sag after long-term use. Furthermore, it displays images with high resolution, wide viewing angles and high color saturation. The flexible nature of Barco RigiFlex facilitates transportation, storage and installation. In addition, the projection screen on the frame can be replaced or upgraded to meet new operation requirements.
