Auviso audiovisual solutions, one of Switzerland’s leading players in the event equipment and services market, has confirmed the purchase of Barco projectors.

The company announced that it has bought 14 high-brightness Barco projectors in a bid to raise its rental fleet to new levels of performance.

Barco's HDX- and HDF- projectors have been selected by the company as they provide exceptional brightness, robustness and reliability.

As a result of the choice, Auviso audiovisual solutions has become one of the first Swiss AV suppliers to offer Barco's high-brightness HDF- and HDX- projectors.

Martin Elmiger, chief executive officer at Auviso, said: "Every three to four years we replace our complete rental stock. 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."

Barco projectors are currently being used for an exclusive performance of Pirates of the Caribbean at the Culture and Conference centre in Lucerne. Three of its brand-new Barco HDXFW26 projectors were supplied by Auviso audiovisual solutions to screen the movie.

Markus Vehlow, sales manager at Barco, added that the investment in the company's HDX- and HDF- projectors by Auviso audiovisual solutions will result in more AV rental providers selecting the products in the coming months.
