Barco designs technology that makes everyday life a little better. Seeing beyond the image, we develop sight, sound, and sharing solutions to help you work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Our focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (from meeting and control rooms to corporate spaces), Healthcare (from the radiology department to the operating room), and Entertainment (from movie theaters to live events and attractions). With a team of over 3,600 employees, located all around the globe, we realized sales of 1,082.6 million euro in 2019. 

The Barco software group is at the forefront of innovation in the context of Barco’s digital transformation.
Barco has made the step to digitalize the current business by adding software on top of the existing hardware core business and enhancing customer satisfaction by optimizing the customer workflows through software.
