Barco E2

Raising the bar for live screen management, the E2 presentation system provides superior image quality, exceptional input and output density, great expandability and durability. Supporting native 4K input and output, it was the first screen management system to manage 4K projector blends with refresh rates up to 60Hz with full 4:4:4 color sampling and 12bit processing . A truly versatile system, it offers eight mixable PGM outputs and four scaled Aux Outputs for full show control with a single box. The E2 can be linked with multiple other E2 chassis to create extremely large pixel processing canvases, to support the largest displays available.

Native 4K input and output
With native 4K@60p input and output, the E2 provides impressive pixel processing power. Whether native or scaled inputs, single cable 4K60p, two connectors or four, this HDCPcompliant system manages it all. With up to 32 inputs and 16 outputs, the E2 system offers full screen control. The E2 can support 32 HD pips or 8 4K pips. The layers can be configured to support a mixture of HD and 4K resolutions maximizing your system flexibility. Thanks to its linkable chassis, it can easily expand beyond the capabilities of a single box without the need for additional external processing and matrix routing to distribute the signals. Currently the linking in E2 supports up to eight processors for a total of 32 4K program outputs, with the possibility of more in the future.

Simple servicing and control
The E2 comes with a straightforward cross-platform user interface that provides touchscreen ergonomics. As the presets are stored on the chassis it enables easy control via third-party systems. Multiple users can control the system simultaneously, and the API allows third-party developers to create custom control programs and interfaces. Thanks to its modular design, users can simply add a new input or output card to support future signal interfaces. This modularity also ensures great serviceability, as users can easily swap a specific input or output card in the case of damage, without needing to ship or replace the entire box.

Designed for life on the road
Designed for the live event industry, the rugged E2 features a steel chassis that’s able to withstand the challenging conditions of life on the road. What’s more, it offers screen control in a compact form factor of only four rack units, which makes it easy to ship and install. And thanks to its modular cards and dual redundant power supplies, the E2 is extremely reliable and easy to service in the field.

Layers, layers, layers
The E2 offers an extremely flexible layer management system. The E2 starts with a pixel perfect, full resolution, unscaled background layer that is the same resolution as the screen destination. As an unscaled mixing background layer it does not use any of the valuable scaling layers. With up to 32 layers available in HD, the E2 can customize the layer configuration to meet the needs of your application. The layers provide either pip or key effects, and can be configured for HD, Dual Link (2560×1600 or 3840×1200 max), or 4K resolutions. Each destination gets dedicated layers, so you know exactly how many resources are available. The layers can also be configured as single layers with cut transitions, or two of the scalers can be combined to create a mixing layer. Each destination can support a combination of mixers, single layers, pips, keys, and various sizes of layers, all to create a single composited image on the screen.
