Here at Hawthorn, we’re committed to offering our clients innovative production solutions, meaning we’re always on the hunt for the latest cutting-edge kit hitting the market. The most recent piece of equipment to catch our eye is Barco’s UDX-4K32 laser projector. Offering 31,000 lumens of light output and 4K resolution, we couldn’t wait to add this – the flagship of the Barco UDX range – to our inventory.

With the new units available to hire from Hawthorn now, we asked Dave Barton, our Group Head of Video, why he thinks our latest laser projector is a must-hire piece of kit.
