Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore(RWS) is Asia’s premium lifestyle destination resort. For seven consecutive years since 2011, RWS has been named “Best Integrated Resort” at the TTG Travel Awards, which recognizes the very best of the Asia Pacific’s travel industry. When RWS wanted to create a multi-function ballroom encircled by projected images, they turned to Barco’s ProAV partner in Singapore, Aims Productions, for a suitable hardware solution. Aims Productions delivered the best Barco technology to create the displays the designers at RWS were dreaming of.

Located on the resort island of Sentosa, Resort Worlds Sentosa is home to world-class attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore, S.E.A. Aquarium, The Maritime Experiential Museum, Dolphin Island and Adventure Cove Water Park. It also boasts six luxury hotels, the Resorts World Convention Centre and is the flagship destination spa in Asia. The Resorts World Ballroom is the largest column-free ballroom in the region, offering 6,000 square meters of unobstructed space that is perfect for large-scale events such as conventions, conferences, exhibitions and concerts and the perfect site to benefit from everything Barco projectors have to offer.

Blending reality and excitement

RWS set out to enhance the multi-function ballroom using unique technology that can be configured to enrich the varied events that take place there. Barco projectors were the obvious choice to provide the turnkey solution that RWS desired to upgrade the 360-degree ballroom. The ballroom now displays projections on 5.5m-high screens that surround the whole room—an impressive effect that completely captures the imagination! Choong Yip Weng, General Manager of AIMS Productions (SG) Pte Ltd.says, "Barco projectors have a reputation as being the best in the venue and staging industries for a reason—they can always be trusted to deliver first-class solutions."

Versatility with ease

RWS was adamant that the solution needed to be low maintenance and cost effective, but still easy to operate and completely reliable. Barco achieved this with 14 UDX-W22 laser-phosphor projectors, 8 HDX-W20 Flex projectors and 2 E2 Event Master processors to offer full control of the system from a single box. Barco’s UDX range includes the most compact, versatile and high-quality projectors on the market, perfect for transforming a huge ballroom—or any events venue—with razor-sharp 4K images.

The projectors were installed in a setup that surrounds the ballroom with high-definition images, creating a spectacular show for the people inside. The system transforms the room, offering countless applications for everything from slideshows for business conferences to magical surrounds for celebrations.

“RWS are impressed that Barco projectors so easily deliver the visual effects they wanted,” says Choong Yip Weng, “They are excited to offer their customers a unique venue for staging memorable events.”

Thanks to Barco projectors, the Resorts World Sentosa ballroom can now transform in countless ways, cementing its place as one of the greatest event venues in Asia. Now, the future looks as bright as the stunning projections—the possibilities are almost blinding! Gary Sze, Executive Director of Aims Productions says, "RWS is thrilled with the competence and capabilities of this unique Barco solution. It has added even more grandeur and magnificence to their already premium venue."
