BARCO E2 Gen 2
A step forward in live display management: E2 presentation systems offer superior image quality, exceptional input and output density, great expandability and long service life. Supporting native 4K resolution inputs and outputs, it was the first display management system capable of controlling 4K projector combinations with refresh rates up to 60Hz, 4: 4: 4 color sampling, and 12-bit processing. A truly versatile solution, offering eight combinable PGM outputs and four scaled aux outputs for absolute control of shows with just one system. Multiple E2s can be linked to process extremely large pixel canvases that support the largest displays available.
Go 4K all the way
With up to 40 inputs and 18 outputs, the E2 Gen 2 processor provides full screen control. The E2 Gen 2 offers 16 4K inputs and 8 4K outputs that enable impressive pixel processing power with increased processing speed. Whether it’s native or scaled inputs, a single 4K60p cable, two connectors, or four, this HDCP-compliant system handles it all. Thanks to its pluggable chassis, it can be easily expanded with more capabilities without having to add other external matrix routing and processing functions to distribute the signals.
Simple maintenance and control
The E2 Gen 2 includes a straightforward, cross-platform user interface with touchscreen ergonomics. Since the presets are stored in the chassis, control is easy with third-party systems. Multiple users can control the system simultaneously, and the API allows third-party developers to create custom control interfaces and programs. The 4K Multiviewer and its comprehensive description of any input and output in the system enables complete situational awareness while creating the most impressive experiences. Thanks to its modular design, users only have to add new input or output cards to accommodate future signal interfaces.
Designed for life on the road
Designed for the live events industry, the robust features of the E2 Gen 2 system are protected by a rugged steel chassis, capable of withstanding the harsh conditions of road transport. In addition, it allows to control the displays from a compact format of only four units in a rack, which facilitates its transport and installation. Thanks to its modularity and two improved redundant power supplies, the E2 Gen 2 system is extremely reliable and easy to maintain in the field.
Layers, layers, layers
The E2 offers a highly flexible layer management system. With up to 32 layers available in HD, the E2 Gen 2 can customize the layer settings to meet the needs of your application. Layers can be configured to support a mix of HD and 4K resolutions, maximizing system flexibility.
