HONG KONG — Barco rental partner AV Promotions Limited Corporation (AVP) provided 264 ILite 6BK LED tiles, arrayed in a 22-by-12 tile format as the visual backdrop for the Miss Asia Pageant 2009. The crew also used Barco’s Encore system for the video processing and presentation. “It is an honor for us at AVP to have served Asia TV for so many years,” said Elton Wong, director of AV Promotion Ltd. “We are happy to see the beautifully vibrant stage backdrop, not only for its visual effect, but how it helps frame the beautiful contestant in an exciting way.”

The event, now in its 21st year, was televised by Asia Television. Miss Xu Ying from Mainland China was crowned the winner.

“It’s really exciting to witness the success of the Miss Asia Pageant 2009,” said Frank Christiaens, president of Barco for Greater China. “We are pleased that both Asia TV and our valued rental partner, AVP, have great confidence in Barco products and solutions.”
