3D Ad testing.

Buzz 3D Virtual Ad Pre Testing technology provides a Controlled approach in Virtual Reality for measuring Ad Formats and Creatives, resulting in consistent outputs. Confounding issues are removed as every respondent interacts with a billboard and/or creative at exactly the same moment, in exactly the same circumstances, which means that meaningful comparisons can be achieved. This forms a baseline for judging the degree of visibility achieved by a specific advertising surface (paper, digital, backlit), location or Creative which is impossible to replicate in the real world. This technology was chosen as the Virtual Solution for the prestigious European Consortium AM4DOOH research project involving FEPE and 4 of the world's largest outdoor advertisers (JC Decaux, ClearChannel International, Exterion Media and APG SGA). You can see more about AM4DOOH in a presentation by Neil Eddleston, Director General JC Decaux OneWorld, at youtube.com/watch?v=2Wkx9JkrT7s.

Real-Time Data On UK Billboards.



Virgin Trains launched in Birmingham ( UK ) a dead-simple digital OOH campaign this week that very effectively uses real-time data to tell motorists crawling along choked motorways that’d they’d likely have been far wiser to take a train. The campaign for the railway, conceived by Virgin Train’s agency Anomaly and pulled off by the digital shop Grand Visual, combines traffic and location data to accurately tell motorists the comparable driving and riding times to destinations along roadways.

Holo-Gauze.

Holo-Gauze create epic show DJ Eric Prydz benefited from some extraordinary signage that debuted at his EPIC 5.0, London Victoria Park gig in late May. The holographic 3D display was produced by Holo-Gauze, and aided Realtime Environmental Systems (RES) and creative director for the show, Liam Tomaszewski, in creating the large hologram.

The displays included a spaceman and a galaxy, which was projected in front of around 15,000 fans.  Four Panasonic RZ31K 30, 000 lumen laser projectors beamed the pictures onto a Holo-Gauze screen, which was in front of Eric Prydz, amazing his audience.

As well as the large holograms, there was a V-shaped 2304 x 576 pixel LED display was placed at the back of the stage, with another V-shaped screen forming a cube, playing animations around the DJ. The pixels on the front screen allowed the audience to see Prydz when he was lit up, despite the animations also showing in front of him.

Holo-Gauze is ideal for live events such as this, allowing live performers to be situated behind our near-visible gauze while visually stunning holographic effects appear to float in front of them. Holo-Gauze makes the seemingly impossible, possible”

Stuart Warren-Hill, Holo-Gauze inventor and Holotronica owner and chief executive, comments: “I was absolutely delighted when RES again asked us to help with Eric’s latest EPIC show.

“Holo-Gauze is ideal for live events such as this, allowing live performers to be situated behind our near-visible gauze while visually stunning holographic effects appear to float in front of them. Holo-Gauze makes the seemingly impossible, possible.”

Holo-Gauze were also part of BeyoncĂ©’s Grammy Awards performance, as well as Prydz’s previous EPIC 3.0 show at Madison Square Garden

Here is a demo of Holo-Gauze in Las Vegas June 2016. The test shows the excellent invisibility and the wide viewing angle.
