Professional grade optics

Medea’s optical engine architecture is world-class, built from custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses. The resulting image quality is simply outstanding.

State of the art "Pulse" electronics

Our “Pulse” electronics are built on a superior FPGA platform, featuring a dual core processor on the industry’s only 20 nm SoChave, with 96 transceiver lanes delivering 3.3 Tbps of serial bandwidth.

Thanks to our unique single step processing technology (SSPTM), Pulse electronics are designed to process 4K UHD, HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2 and HDR10 signals with extremely low latency. This provides exceptional gaming and movie viewing experiences.


Barco’s RealColor processing enables simple and accurate calibration to your desired color gamut and white point.

Award winning DLP technology

Medea utilises the very latest 0.66" DMD from Texas Instruments which features a 5.4 Micron Micromirror Pitch and a ±17° Micromirror Tilt (Relative to Flat Surface). This technology allows us to display flawless 4K UHD (3,840 × 2,160 px) images.

Laser light source

Light on demand, allows you to adjust light output to match the time of day and/or content you’re viewing. Medea’s long laser lifetime means you can treat it like a TV, whilst still getting the big screen experience. 20,000 hours laser usage equates to 5 hours viewing every day for 11 years.
