Where the stars of video processing technology align

Visitors to Singapore’s One North district cannot miss the iconic landmark The Star. One of Singapore’s most notable buildings, The Star is a huge, integrated hub that harbors retail as well as civic and cultural zones. The Star Performing Arts Centre (The Star PAC) takes up nine out of the structure’s fifteen levels. It houses a 5,000-seat theatre, a multipurpose hall, an outdoor amphitheatre, rooftop reception areas and supporting spaces, each equipped with sound and imaging technology to cater to a variety of events. To ensure fluid visual presentations from different video sources in all circumstances, The Star PAC has chosen Barco’s high-quality video processing systems to complement its cutting-edge facilities.

Sophisticated technology for an immersive spectacle

To immerse the audiences – whether they be art fanatics, concert-goers or conference delegates in a full-blown visual spectacle, Barco's local partners worked together to equip the venue with the necessary solutions, such as LED walls, projectors, and video processing material. Barco duly provided a highly advanced Encore video controlling system with LC and SC presentation controllers and seven video processors to manage the various video feeds. Thanks to its modular, scalable architecture, the Encore system facilitates a variety of configurations – a feature that comes in handy for a venue as versatile as The Star PAC.


Geared up for hassle-free meetings

In addition to the Barco gear in the auditorium, The Star PAC also installed Barco solutions in its meeting rooms. Barco’s ImagePRO-II all-in-one video scaler with PDS-902 and DCS-200 switchers provides users with all the tools required for an efficient and smooth-running presentation.
