Barco Australia has appointed Australian distributor World's Best Technology Distributors (WBT) for its portfolio of projectors and AV technology.

Barco's range of ProAV solutions such as fixed installation projectors, image processing solutions, LCD Video Wall platforms, and wePresent, a wireless presentation system, will add to WBT's existing portfolio and offer partners and end-users a range of advanced projection solutions.
