Sydney company Laservision has won a major contract to develop a large-scale multi-media attraction at the shrine of Indian spiritual leader Shri Sai Baba at Shirdi, near Nasik in Maharashtra State in India.
NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell, while in India on a trade and investment mission, praised Laservision's success. "The company beat strong global competition to win this $5.5 million export deal. The high tech spiritual theme park, the first of its kind in India, will display the interactive teachings of the spiritual leader to the 20 million devotees who visit the shrine every year."
For the multi-media presentation, Laservision will use a combination of aqua-screens, high-powered light-ray laser systems, high definition video projectors, surround sound and a variety of special effects – all of which will be synchronised and controlled by unique technology developed by the company.
The research, development and creative work will be done at Laservision's headquarters in Dural, where the show will be built, then dismantled and shipped to Shirdi for construction, commissioning and testing during the middle of next year.
Laservision, which exports 97 per cent of its services, is an innovative and creative leader in the entertainment sector and a great example of how NSW companies are competing and winning in the global marketplace.
Laservision's work is seen in more than 20 countries, including Marina Bay in Singapore, Everland in South Korea, and the world's largest light and sound show; 'A Symphony of Lights' at Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.
Mr O'Farrell said Laservision's success highlighted the strength of NSW's ICT sector and its specialist niches. "ICT, which is an essential driver of our services-based economy, is one of the sectors I am promoting on my current trade and investment mission to India."
