I can't comment on modern Barco stuff, but I have an old Barco TV monitor
here (about 27 yeras old). It is quite simply the best engineered monitor
it's ever been my pleasure to work on or use.
The picture is, of course, second-to-none (given the limitations of a
TV-rate signal, OK...). The think is built like a tank, with solid metal
chassis work, plug-in cards, labelled testpoints, a drawer that slides
out at the fornt containing the converegence PCB and deflection boards
(where most of the adjustments are), even an extender board stored inside
the unit. The manual contains full schematics, waveform data, parts
lists, and so on.
Truely an excellent piece of engineering.
