ORLANDO, FL--PRG has added Barco Folsom's Encore Presentation System to its product inventory, continuing an 24-month expansion of its video division. With the growth of its video capabilities, the longtime leader in lighting, audio and scenic technologies has become the premier one-stop shop for high-quality equipment and services for the entertainment industry.

"Our clients increasingly have been asking us for video solutions, in addition to our other services, and we responded," says Tim Wiley, vice president, PRG. "We've been investing in top-of-the-line equipment and we have brought on board some of the nation's leading video professionals to offer expertise and support. As a result, corporate and other clients can count on us for high-quality video production for any size event - from a simple presentation to a stadium show." In March 2007 PRG acquired Chicago-based High Performance Images (HPI).

"We're responding to the tremendous growth of the corporate-industrial market and our clients' interest in mounting productions that are as high in quality as they are spectacular in scale," adds Wiley. Over the past year and a half, PRG has opened full-service video depots in Chicago; Orlando; Las Vegas; Mount Vernon, NY; and Toronto. For more information visit www.prg.com.
