30 May

Eric Van Zele, CEO of Barco has admitted to AV Magazine in an interview that the company nearly went out of business a few years ago. “Three to four years ago this company had a near-death experience, it was over. If it wasn’t for digital cinema we wouldn’t still be here.” Speaking at the launch of the company’s ClickShare presentation device, Van Zele outlined the company’s future strategy, which is to concentrate on three core markets: heathcare, entertainment and control rooms.
