China: The fast growing Chinese economy has led to rapid development and furious competition in the hotel conferencing industry. At China's high grade hotels, prestigious board rooms with huge optical rear projection screens have become a symbol of excellence.
In 2004, the 5 star Guangzhou Garden Hotel decided to take hotel conferencing in China to a new level and installed a display system with 2 x 180" dnp Giant Wide Angle Screens in their main conference hall - a solution which attracts conference budgets from China's most successful companies.
Traditionally, most Chinese hotels have equipped their conferencing suites with front projection screens. However, the bright lighting systems used in hotel board rooms have a devastating effect on front projected images - only optical rear projection solutions can guarantee satisfactory display quality in high-light environments.
The Guangzhou Garden Hotel wanted the best. But the old style boardroom offered very limited space for a builtin rear projection solution with 2 huge 180" displays. To solve the space problem, the optical rear projection specialists at Shenzhen Wincomn designed a compact offaxis solution with a built-in depth of less than 3,000 mm.
- We see this one million dollar investment in our Hotel Board Room as a great investment, that is anticipated to pay back several times, says Mr. Chu, the director of Guangzhou Garden Hotel.
