EVENT - Astro B.yond Blogger Night @ Modesto's Desa Sri Hartamas

by - Saturday, January 16, 2010

Last Wednesday, I had an invitation to attend Astro B.yond Blogger Night at Modesto's Sri Hartamas! Thanks to Nuffnang who invited me *heart*

I had an opportunity to be part of first 200 people who experience Astro B.yond.
100 Malaysian bloggers were amongst the first witness Malaysia's First High Definition Television Commercial for Astro B.yond during the Astro B.yond Blogger Night at Modesto's, Desa Sri Hartamas!

Astro B.yond is a multi-phased innovation that begins with the first-ever High-Definition broadcast service in Malaysia. It is an entertainment experience like never before, the new standard in television.

I missed a perfomance from the local orchestra group. Me & Suresh busy eating upsatirs... I damn hungry and my stomach pain leh... Haven't get any lunch yet!

The performance was very getting the audience into the mood of grooving and beating along with the music.

High-Definition is the latest in a long line of major improvements in television technology, which has moved from black-and-white analogue to widescreen colour digital over the last 50 years. With High-Definition, viewers will enjoy approximately five times the detail of standard definition television broadcast.

And now, Astro B.yond, Malaysia's first High-Definition broadcast, brings you a complete sensory experience – sharper pictures, more vibrant colours, cinematic surround sound, and a wider screen. Combined, it gives you crystal clear details and a viewing experience like never before.

The crowd and we had an opportunity to watch their ads twice and we were the first 200 people who watch it XD
