Chris Donaldson, Barco’s national accounts manager, explains the key characteristics of Barco UniSee and answers questions. Webinar host and Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions editor-in-chief Tom LeBlanc helps guide this look at the components of the UniSee solution:

  • UniSee View – Barco says it has optimized all aspects of LCD video walls with a reliable image with unmatched uniformity and a barely noticeable inter-tile gap.
