March Webinar: Barco UniSee Video Wall System

During a free Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions webcast on Wed., March 28 at 2 p.m. EST, presented by AVI-SPL, attendees will learn what makes the Barco UniSee video wall system unique and valuable to their organizations. Chris Donaldson, Barco’s national accounts manager, will explain the key characteristics of Barco UniSee video wall system through short, instructional videos. CI and TD editor-in-chief Tom LeBlanc will explore with Donaldson what end users need to know to decide if Barco UniSee is right for them. Along the way, they’ll discuss:

  • 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.
  • UniSee Mount – Barco ensures precise alignment of panels without damaging sensitive edges with a completely redesigned mounting structure that adapts to the new generation of bezel-less video walls. And it allows for extremely fast installation.
  • UniSee Connect – In many applications, a video wall’s role is business-critical, so it needs to be operational at all times and scalable. Barco says it designed UniSee to ensure the system’s uptime.

Attendees can submit questions and get answers directly from Barco’s Donaldson during the live event.
