What do you expect of a good hotel, during your holidays? A clean room, a good bed and a great breakfast, of course. For those who want that little bit extra: Barco can help!
The world’s largest hotel chains have called in our help to create amazing projection mappings, to equip their theaters with the best digital cinema projectors or to install ultra-bright projectors in the event rooms …
From Abu-Dhabi to Qatar and Ibiza
A party, an opening or a conference: a spectacular video mapping will amaze the audience at any occasion or celebration. When the global Starwood Hotels group – with big-name brands like The Sheraton, Aloft, W hotels and Le Méridien – organized its annual meeting in 2013, it asked Belgian companies Beam-Inc and Jorizon to design an impressive video mapping to project onto the hotel façade. Four HDX-W18 projectors brought the images to life. In Doha, Qatar, six of the same projectors helped create a spectacular nine-minute 3D video mapping show on the opening of the Souq Waqif five-star hotels. Maybe even more unique: in Ibiza, our HDF-W26 projectors created an unbelievable projection mapping onto the swimming pool of the Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel.
The Hilton chain
In northern Europe, we found Barco projectors at two hotels of the prestigious Hilton chain. For example, the 530m³ conference hall at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica, Hilton’s first and only hotel in Iceland, features a three-chip RLM-W8 projector. At the ‘DoubleTree’ Hilton hotel in Poland, a Barco F32 WUXGA projector ensures crisp, high-contrast projection in the 300-person ballroom. In addition, Barco also supplied a DP4K-23B digital cinema projector for use in the hotel’s theater. And did you read our most recent hotel-related issue of the Barco newsroom? One of our top-range DP4K-32Bx projectors has just found itself a very stylish home in London, at the 188-seat cinema theater of the spanking-new Ham Yard boutique hotel.
Barco for business
More than providing solutions related to entertainment, our ClickShare meeting-room solution is gaining inroads in the hospitality sector. The Marriott Hotel in München and East Hotel Hamburg in Germany, for example, have recently converted their existing meeting rooms into truly collaborative working spaces, featuring ClickShare in a starring role. Watch the interview with the Marriott München Management and keep an eye on our reference story section, as we’ll be publishing the East Hotel Hamburg story soon!
We will, of course, be delighted to hear if you encounter Barco gear in the next hotel you’re visiting. Drop us a line, if you do! In the meantime, we’re busy preparing next week’s summer news. Check in on Friday 1 August!
