For the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 2006 Asian Games, The Electric Canvas utilized forty-four PIGI projectors from France and almost a kilometre of PIGI film.

This represented the largest number of PIGI projectors ever used on a single screen surface, with a total of 264 kilowatts delivering 350 000 lumens of light output. The ceremony featured a fourteen thousand square metre image area displaying images and effects designed and tested with a PIGI simulator in Sydney, Australia. The show was installed and maintained by a crew of eight specialised technicians who synchronised the projection to the show using time-code.
