Control Your Barco Cinema Projector with Q-SYS


If you’re looking for more ways to get Creative with Plugins, look no further than the Asset Manager feature in Q-SYS Designer Software. The Q-SYS for Cinema universe is expanding once again with a new control plugin for Barco Series 1 and 2 Digital Cinema Projectors.  Now, two of the leading digital cinema projector manufacturers are included in the Q-SYS Ecosystem, and we won’t stop there. 

You’ve heard us say that “if it can be controlled, it can be controlled by Q-SYS”. We don’t believe that’s hyperbole. The Q-SYS Ecosystem is, and always has been, the most scalable, flexible, and powerful platform for audio, video, and control for virtually any environment that depends on technology to deliver a value proposition. 



Like the first digital cinema projector plugin that we created for Christie digital projectors, the new Barco plugin allows you to control macros (channels), power on/off, lamp, douser, and lens adjustment along with key status indicators.  And, you can bring all of this functionality to a control surface on a Q-SYS network touchscreen controller, iOS UCI viewer, or HTML interface.



The Q-SYS Barco digital cinema projector plugin is now available via Q-SYS Designer Asset Manager within Q-SYS Designer Software.  Asset Manager is a cloud-based feature that allows system designers to quickly and easily download and install new Q-SYS plugins for third-party devices, without waiting for new Q-SYS Designer Software releases.

  1. Any word on when this plugin will be updated for current projectors (Barco S4)? While having S2 control is essential for existing installations, Barco only makes S4 projectors now. As such, there isn’t a plugin for current projectors.
