The Thor platform represents the pinnacle of Barco Residential’s projection portfolio. Thor, the hammerwielding god of lightning, brings true, direct laser projection to the most exclusive homes for the first time. The perfectly designed 15,000 lumen output, hermetically sealed 4K DLP® engine delivers reality altering levels of immersion for the largest home cinemas.
Thor is the world’s first and only integrated laser 6P 4K 3D projection solution for Cinema at Home. 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 minimize laser speckle, Thor is able to provide superior 2D and 3D images on both white and silver screens.
Color convergence mechanism
Thor also features our unique and highly acclaimed analog color convergence mechanism. By allowing the green and red DMD chips to be manually adjusted, perfect convergence can be achieved. This attention to detail renders images sharper and more immersive than ever before.
Not every projector can claim to be handbuilt, Thor can. Even though we are using state-of-the-art technologies for most processes – such as measuring, calibrating, assembling our electronics, and manufacturing the delicate optics and mechanics – every single step of the process is overseen by specifically trained professionals. Moreover, the assembly of vital parts is performed by hand. To guarantee ultimate quality at all stages of manufacture, our projectors do not travel down an automated production line.
