Vistacom Tech Expo 2023: Unpacking Barco’s New Video Platform with Dave Barletta

November 3, 2023


The Vistacom Tech Expo 2023, marking its 15th rendition, once again gathers innovators in the Audio-Visual (AV) arena, offering a platform to unveil cutting-edge solutions. Through a series of booth interviews, attendees delve into the forefront of AV technology, exploring the new offerings poised to redefine control room and video wall solutions.

In this spotlight interview, Dave Barletta from Barco’s Video Wall and Control Room Team introduces CTRL, Barco’s new video platform, designed to bridge the divide between control room operations and basic video wall solutions. By integrating the features of previous platforms, TFN and Ops Base, CTRL now enables a personal video wall experience right at the user’s desk, extending it to an overview video wall. This new platform is not only budget-friendly for small to medium-sized setups but also packs a punch in terms of ease of deployment and security with its end-to-end encryption.

Moreover, Barletta touches on Barco’s UNITI technology, a groundbreaking invention back in 2017, now in its second version as unveiled in the recent Infocom event. UNITI, along with CTRL, amplifies Barco’s capability to provide quick, efficient, and user-friendly solutions, further enriching the AV landscape.

This dialogue with Dave Barletta sheds light on Barco’s relentless pursuit to enhance AV operations, encapsulating the spirit of innovation that Vistacom Tech Expo 2023 embodies.
