Kuala Lumpur, 17 March 2016 – The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) recently became the first facility in Malaysia to install the 6500 ANSI Lumens laser technology projector as part of her RM3.1 million investment to upgrade the audio-visual (AV) capabilities in the venue’s 21 meeting rooms.
According to the Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor, the Centre is currently regarded as the most technologically-advanced facility in Malaysia, and the investment “reflects our commitment to continuously upgrade and improve the quality of service delivery for the Centre’s delegates and visitors. As technology becomes an even bigger component of any world-class convention facility in today’s increasingly technology-driven world, the latest AV upgrades will enhance our clients’ overall meeting experience.”
“The six new digital ceiling speakers in each room facilitates clearer projection of voice and sound. While the installation of the 6500 ANSI Lumens laser technology projector produces outstanding and clear high-definition (1080p) images of superior quality, colour and brightness. The projector is perfectly complimented by the 16:10 motorised projector screen that delivers a larger viewing area matching the latest widescreen ratio for higher resolution capabilities,” says Pryor, elaborating on the new equipment.
In addition, the 6500 ANSI Lumens laser technology projector’s eco-friendly design improves energy efficiency, and contains no lead, mercury, or halogenated flame-retardant materials, which are RoHS* compliant. It also requires fewer resources by eliminating the need for replacement lamps, hence contributing to the Centre’s environmental protection efforts.
The first phase was recently completed, involving 10 meeting rooms on level 4 where the Centre’s unique and innovative TenOnCall offering for short-lead bookings and just-in-time meetings is housed. The second phase includes the 11 meeting rooms on level 3 and will be completed by year-end.
In her continuing efforts to enhance the delegate and guest experience, the facility has invested a substantial amount into various AV and IT upgrades and/or enhancement activities since opening in June 2005. This includes the recent investment of RM1.8 million on 190 new digital speakers and digital audio processors, which deliver clearer projection of voice and sound in the Plenary Theatre, Plenary Hall, Conference Halls 1, 2 and 3, Banquet Hall and Ballrooms 1 & 2. Similarly, all audio processors in the Exhibition Halls have transitioned to digital.
