Value creation model
The concept of ‘value creation’ fits perfectly with Barco’s mission of enabling bright outcomes for its stakeholders.
In the below value creation model, we describe our inputs and explain how, through our business model, we convert these to outputs that ensure sustainable value to all our stakeholders.
The four pillars of our technology stack
Four key domains form the foundation for Barco’s innovation for impact in the future: advanced display & projection, image processing & insights, connectivity & data analytics and computational optics. Every technology is, however, merely an enabler to provide our customers with end-to-end solutions that deliver bright outcomes.

One Barco with five culture blocks
In mid-2019, Barco kicked off a culture rejuvenation project, defining the cultural traits that Barco must embrace to continue leading in its dynamic markets. Based on input from 250 colleagues from all levels and countries, we defined how we can live our DNA with five building blocks as the key elements of our Barco culture.
Creating moments, enriching lives
Whether in cinemas, concert halls or museums; at theme parks, music festivals or corporate events: Barco’s entertainment solutions are designed to turn heads and create compelling moments. By providing our customers with the most advanced projectors, LED displays and image processing solutions, we help them capture fans rather than audiences. Our increasing focus on convenience and services further helps them build that fan base and grow their businesses.
Engaging you to unleash the power of shared knowledge
Every Barco enterprise solution is designed to help people collaborate better by ensuring engaging experiences. From boardrooms and workplaces to control rooms and classrooms: all our solutions help people unleash the power of shared knowledge – for brighter ideas and, ultimately, better results.
Ensuring better healthcare outcomes for more people
We connect healthcare professionals at almost every patient touch point, from the imaging room, to radiology, during specialist consultations and in the surgical suite. By providing medical staff with the complete and most accurate picture, we enable more informed decisions, when and where it matters most.
Our strategy is aligned with our company DNA
Barco is on a mission to enable bright outcomes by transforming content into insight and emotion. To guide us in pursuing that mission, we introduced a new strategy in 2017, building on our strengths and inspired by a series of market dynamics. Our corporate strategy is built around four strategic levers – four priorities that form the Barco DNA.
- Innovate for impact
- Focus on performance
- Offer outcome-based solutions
- Go for sustainable impact
