Barco RigiFlex: the world’s first rigid powerwall you can roll up
Posted on Thursday, October 25, 2018
 
Kortrijk, Belgium, 25 October 2018 – Barco, a global leader in professional visualization and virtual reality solutions, has announced the launch of Barco RigiFlex, a brand-new rigid yet very flexible powerwall screen. The first rigid, rollable powerwall of its kind, Barco RigiFlex combines excellent visual performance with amazingly easy transportation, installation and maintenance. Qualifying as one of the market’s best high-tension surfaces, Barco RigiFlex is an excellent alternative for fixed powerwalls.

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/33 x 13 feet. Meanwhile, it has similar quality specifications as the top glass screens, delivering an authentic immersive interaction.  

Innovative material for great performance

Barco RigiFlex uses innovative woven high polymer fabric and is less than 1 mm/0.04 inches 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 doors are opened or closed, or 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 (with a half gain angle of more than 80 degrees) and unequalled color saturation, creating an outstanding rear-projection powerwall experience.

Easier transportation, faster installation

The flexible nature of Barco RigiFlex facilitates transportation, storage and installation. Compared with traditional rear-projection products, it can be installed in half the time and with less staff. In addition, the projection screen on the frame can be replaced or upgraded to meet new operation requirements.

“Barco RigiFlex is a great addition to our virtual reality portfolio,” says Kurt Doornaert, Director Virtual Experience at Barco. “It allows us to install powerwalls in places where competitors need to offer suboptimal solutions (like spliced screens or smaller projection surfaces), giving us an important competitive edge. Combined with our great projectors, including the UDX and XDL series, we can answer the requirements of a very wide range of users.”
