January 2018 Press release
Barco, the innovator in LCD video walls, and Vogel’s, a global leader in mounting solutions for AV equipment proudly announce the new compatibility of Barco UniSee® with Vogel’s Universal video wall solutions.
Using a specifically designed adapter, a Barco UniSee® video wall can now be connected to the ceiling and/or floor, or be used as a free standing installation. These pre-validated and tested solutions will be globally available by the end of March, 2018.
Vogel's mounting solution for Barco UniSee®
Barco UniSee® was launched on 24 October 2017 with great market enthusiasm. The revolutionary LCD video wall platform surpassed all existing solutions on any level – not only image quality but also reliability, and ease of servicing and installation. It enables enterprises to upgrade their visual experience to the highest available standard in the market.
One of the most innovative features of Barco UniSee® is the specifically designed mounting structure that uses the power of gravity to perfectly align the individual displays at any time, ensuring a perfect installation and easy and damage-free servicing. This mounting structure is a must-have to support UniSee bezel-less LCD video walls. Until now, the UniSee® Mount could only be attached to walls, but a purpose-designed adapter (part of the UniSee® Mount package) now allows it to be easily connected to a Vogel’s Universal video wall solution enabling a ceiling-, floor- or a free standing mounting solution.
Vogel’s renowned mounting structures excel in both quality and easy installation. The Universal video wall mounting solution has been field-proven over the years and features in many installations around the world. Dedicated versions exist for floor to ceiling, fixed to floor, freestanding floor, free hanging ceiling, ceiling to wall, floor to wall set-ups. This gives an unparalleled freedom to position the LCD video wall exactly where it needs to be.
Now Barco and Vogel’s have joined forces to develop a way to connect the UniSee® Mount onto Vogel’s Universal video wall solution. In this way, everyone can select their ideal mounting solution, either directly to the wall, or on to a Vogel’s mounting solution for additional positioning flexibility. The Vogel’s free standing solution even allows a set-up of up to 3 rows high in landscape mode, which is unique in the market.
“The company cultures of Vogel’s and Barco have a lot in common,” says Chris Sluys, VP Operator Experience at Barco. “We foster similar high standards for quality, our innovation ambitions are always aimed at functionality and ease-of-use, and we both know that strategic alliances with other leading companies result in superior value for the customers. It was a pleasure working together with Vogel’s on this solution, which highly expands the applicability of the Barco UniSee platform.”
Gerdi Vogels, CEO of Vogel’s Products BV, adds: “Two A-brands join forces; we are confident that the Barco UniSee LCD video wall in combination with the Vogel’s Universal video wall solutions will reinforce each other in expanding installation possibilities in the Pro-AV market.”
