Barco introduces HD digital mirror system for large-venue projectors to boost creativity for events and exhibitions
InfoComm 2014, Las Vegas, Nev., USA – 20 June 2014 - Barco, a global leader in visualization solutions, introduces the MMS (Moving Mirror System): a new projector accessory that empowers show designers with total creative freedom to direct sharp, detailed HD images anywhere on stage or within an exhibit.
From installations to rental and staging, the new MMS takes visual spectaculars to a new level, providing customers with a host of options for programming dynamic, artistic shows. Using a large, custom front surface and optically flat mirror, the MMS quickly and easily delivers pristine HD images at the command of the designer.
Total creative freedom meets ease of use
The MMS augments Barco’s large-venue projectors with the capability to broadcast a variety of pre-programmed images. Eliminating the need for custom rigging frames and heavy yokes to position visuals where desired, the MMS system enables the projector to be rigged in its natural position, with the mirror doing all the work remotely. Then, it can be controlled either via the layout of the projector, the Barco Projector Toolset, or with an external lighting DMX desk.
“The MMS is a liberating tool that show designers will love for its unlimited creative possibilities, ease of set-up and increased flexibility,” comments William Morris, Vice President Venues & Hospitality for Barco. “The ability to remotely position - with incredible accuracy - any image presented by the brightest projectors in the world, is an incredible step forward.”
Combining industry-leading technologies
The MMS System was developed by High End Systems, a Barco company, leveraging its optical and media server expertise. The high-definition digital mirror system attaches to Barco’s HDX, HDF and HDQ series large-venue projectors, and is available in two versions: the MMS-100 includes an Axon HD media server onboard with the mirror and the MMS-200 features only the mirror component.
A multitude of applications with built-in flexibility
“We are keenly focused on providing our customers the flexibility they need, so decided to offer two versions,” says Chris Ferrante, Director of Product Management for High End Systems. “While the MMS-100 will offer reduced cabling infrastructure and high-powered GPU-based control of the image in real time, this is not always required.”
The MMS is ideally suited for projection mapping, television, stage and theaters, live events, museums, ceremonies and attractions.

The MMS System is on display today at InfoComm in the Barco Booth C6308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
