Brand-new XHD Media Server makes notable debut at 26th ASEAN Summit

Just months after its launch at ISE 2015, Barco’s XHD Media Server was put to the test in a live setting. Malaysian rental and staging partner Cantuman Wawasan (m) Sdn Bhd (Cantuman) successfully used the visual production system to illuminate the opening ceremony of the 26th ASEAN Summit, held in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) on 27 April.

Following an introduction to the XHD Media Server and its advanced 3D Projection Study tool at ISE 2015, Cantuman didn’t wait long to take action. Immediately convinced by the server’s end-to-end approach, the staging company placed its order – the first on the Asian continent – during a Barco partner event last March in Seoul.

One month later, at the opening ceremony of the 26th ASEAN Summit at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Cantuman got to work with its newest gem. The summit, which focuses on political collaboration in southeast Asia, provided the perfect stage. And with great results: the system’s short learning curve and exceptional virtualization capabilities helped Cantuman to create a memorable event.

“Although this was the first project in which we had used the XHD 404’s new features, we were fully confident of the performance it would deliver. It really is an all-in-one solution that covers the full visualization workflow, from design to operation.” , said Zaki Mustapa, Project Director at Cantuman Wawasan (m) Sdn Bhd
