(Hong Kong, 25 September 2008) Hotel and resort managers, leisure park operators, entertainment service providers, show producers or event managers will be able to see, assess and learn about a broad spectrum of audiovisual solutions this November 19 -21 at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.

These technologies are showcased in a dedicated Entertainment Technology Pavilion at InfoComm Asia 2008, where industry leaders will present their latest AV hardware and software applications for the entertainment industry. Among the applications featured are high impact medium such as immersive, 3D and large format LED display and projection systems from Barco and Lighthouse; digital cinema technology from Christie and Projectiondesign; Zeppelin iPOD® speaker systems from Bowers and Wilkins; auditorium audio systems from Beyerdynamic and DIS Danish Interpretation Systems; Show and Media Control software for theme parks, museums, casinos, theaters, planetarium, live events, architectural video, showrooms, etc, from Medialon; touchpanel contol systems to automate and streamline lightings and AV equipment from Crestron; and matrix switchers for high resolution computer -video and stereo audio routing from Extron and Kramer.
