Barco Bragi

Bragi takes its name from an historical ninth-century poet. It is also Balders brother and inherited Balders design language, optical core and lenses. Bragi will have the same PULSE electronic and SW platform powered by a revolutionizing new LED engine.

State of the art electronics 

All new “Pulse” electronics have been designed to process 4K with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 and the optical engine is utilising the very latest 0.9" DMD DLP chipset, delivering 3,840 x 2,160 pixels on screen.

LED Engine

Bragi is using a new optical engine where we have taken the best from previous models combined with new technology to create an even better optical engine than ever before. The optical engine is not the only part that is redesigned, the light source is brand new as well, and this time it’s not laser. The light source is using the latest in HLD and LED illumination technology.


HLD LED is unique in that it works around the ‘law of etendue’ (property of light in an optical system, which characterizes how “spread out” the light is in area and angle...) to deliver a superb color experience and incredible brightness while enabling new levels of resolution. HLD LED combined with regular LED colors are more saturated, our eyes are tricked to interpret this as richer and brighter colors than they are physically measured. Bragi also has a motorized DCI/P3 filter for improved HDR performance, meaning that the projector will support both SDR and HDR viewing.
