Yeah, it says Barco on top! If you stand behind it, it says "BARCO". If if you stand in front of it, it says OCRAB but the letters are upside down as expected!

Here's a full size pic. Looks normal to me!

Kal,
Do Barcos have the red on the right facing the projector and with the power cord on the right? Doug

Every Barco I've ever seen has the red on the right when floor mounted and facing the projector. (Including my Barco Cine 8 Onyx clone which you see in my avatar - though in this case the PJ's ceiling mounted so the red's on the other side).

Only some of the smaller Barco's have the power cord on the right (like the 70x series). Most have it in the back.

What you see in the picture above is normal since it's, well, a picture of a Barco 70x! Smile

Kal

Very Happy

Yeah, I did some searching on this: Turns out NEC's and Ampro's have the red and blue tubes reversed as compared to Barco's and E-homes. Weird!

I dunno Kal, change the tube colors so the red is in the middle and see who catches on.
