I-MAG and CPR recently made the decision to purchase LED Technology to provide the latest cutting edge staging technology to their clients. Their years of teaming on large-scale projects and their combined geographic coverage made partnership in the LED market a logical move.

After months of research on LED technology, I-MAG and CPR made the decision to purchase 468 square feet of BARCO DLite 7HR, LED-technology. Steve Daniels, President of I-MAG Video stated, "We have been sub-renting outdoor screens for several years. There is a growing demand for LED products in the entertainment and corporate markets and we have many clients interested in them. We set out to find the state-of-the-art, and the BARCO product flat out looks better than the rest. We believe that the BARCO is the first LED wall to move seamlessly between indoor and outdoor applications. In addition, the Dlite 7HR offers the most robust system for hot module swaps and rigging, while having easily the most functional software. Jeff Studley of CPR and I did extensive research and field viewing of all the players' products and the BARCO system stands out for its engineering excellence. Couple that with BARCO being the only LED company with a true video background. The choice was simple!"

Curt Petty, Market Business Manager for BARCO's Daylight Display Systems Division, stated, "I-MAG Video and CPR MultiMedia Solutions have been leaders in the rental and staging industry for many years. I-MAG and CPR have used BARCO's high-end video projectors in staging applications for clients ranging from the Backstreet Boys to Oracle Applications Users' Group.
