Switzerland - Auviso audiovisual solutions, one of Switzerland's leading players in the event equipment/services market, has purchased 14 high-brightness Barco projectors to raise its rental fleet to new levels of performance. The AV expert chose Barco's HDX- and HDF- projectors on account of their exceptional brightness, robustness and reliability, as well as the outstanding services provided by Barco distributor Baranday. With this order, auviso becomes one of the first Swiss AV suppliers to offer Barco's high-brightness HDF- and HDX- projectors.

Auviso is a market leader in central Switzerland and one of the key players in the country. Besides offering technical services and consultancy, auviso also boasts a large fleet of advanced audio, video, lighting and rigging equipment to help its customers stage successful events. "Every three to four years we replace our complete rental stock," says Martin Elmiger, Chief Executive Officer at auviso. "When it was time to overhaul our projector fleet, we carefully compared the product offering of four different suppliers on criteria like innovation, quality and serviceability. Barco's HDX-W20 and HDF-W26 projectors definitely stood out from the rest."

Elmiger and his colleagues were especially impressed to see how the three-chip DLP projectors seamlessly combine awesome brightness levels with a compact design. With a light output of 20,000 and 26,000 lumens respectively, the HDX-W20 and HDF-W26 projectors display crisp images with rich colours, even in venues with lots of ambient light. The robustness, reliability and price/quality ratio were equally important in auviso's choice for Barco.

In addition to the quality of the products themselves, the services provided by Barco distributor Baranday were important too. Baranday provides 24/7 support, a hotline and can deliver swap components in no time. "We are delighted that auviso chose Barco's high-brightness projectors, as they are really one of Switzerland's key AV experts," says Markus Vehlow, sales manager at Barco. "Their investment will undoubtedly spur other AV rental providers in the country to follow their example."

Until 3 January 2015, thousands of Swiss will be enjoying an exclusive performance of Pirates of the Caribbean at the Culture and Conference centre in Lucerne. The show features a combination of the movie with dinner and live music by the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra. Auviso audiovisual solutions delivered three of its brand-new Barco HDXFW26 projectors to make the Disney classic come to life.
