Swing Time.

Swing Time is an interactive playscape composed of 20 illuminated ring-shaped swings. The installation activates a temporary park between the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and D Street to create a new type of city park. Custom fabricated from welded polypropylene, the swings are designed in three different sizes so that the community can engage, exercise, and play with Swing Time as individuals or in groups. LED lighting within the swing is controlled by a custom micro-controller, signaling the swing's activity level. An internal accelerometer measures the acceleration forces of the swing. When forces are static and the swings are not in use, they emit a soft, white light that illuminates the area. When the swings are in motion, the micro-controller switches the light from white to purple, creating a more colorful glowing effect. Swing Time's responsive play elements invite users to interact with the swings and with each other, activating the urban park and creating a community laboratory of the Innovation District and South Boston neighborhoods.

Data Visualization Suitable for Every Industry.

Aside from retail centers and service providers, other locations like airports, subways and universities are also incorporating digital signage with data visualization as part of their regular content. The Yale School of Management is a prime example of an institution that utilizes data visualization to perfection.

Opened in January 2014, the 242,000-square-foot, Norman Foster + Partners designed, Edward P. Evans Hall is the new home of the Yale School of Management (SoM). To create a lasting impression of the school’s presence and brand, and to easily communicate timely information, we created three floors of interactive media and digital signage for the students, faculty and visitors at the Yale School of Management. This narrow cast network displays real time information such as school-wide agendas, class and conference schedules, special announcements, insightful information and photography from students, staff and guest speakers as well as customized presentations and broadcast media.
The data visualization on the three-level floor to ceiling media installation currently addresses topics related to the theme of Business, Society and Leadership in an Increasingly Complex World. The data was selected to examine and communicate major trends transforming markets, organizations and societies around the world. The media displays dynamic graphic visualizations of social and economic data and offers shifting perspectives on global trends on a wide variety of comparative scales. Topics include global comparisons of Internet and social media usage, type and availability of medical care as a percentage of population, life expectancy, comparisons of market values of publicly traded stock, cost of capital and gross national product.

Aside from relaying data, the very presence of the digital signage also gave the facility interior an exquisite and high-tech ambiance, which was nothing less than awe-inspiring for visitors and prospect future students.

20 Display Video Wall in Miami.

20 display Planar Mosaic video wall deployed in the Grand Beach Surfside West hotel lobby. The video wall is 4 stories high and seen on Collins Avenue through the properties glass walls.


LIVEPOSTER™ and Tate Britain collaborated to create a campaign showcasing relevant artworks from the Tate Britain archive to promote the much awaited chronological rehang of its key artworks.
Tate Britain wanted to showcase the breadth of its offering and in particular its archive of 500 years of British art to an audience of overseas visitors to London and commuters. The Ocean Two Towers site on the A4 elevated section at Hammersmith, London was chosen as the site for Tate Britain with over 3,800,000 impacts per 2 weeks including the important Heathrow audience for overseas visitors.
The LIVEPOSTER™ concept was to create thousands of unique poster executions, matching artwork with automatically generated copy to produce posters that were relevant to the moment, welcoming overseas visitors and commuters to London in real time. The posters were automatically triggered, using the LIVEPOSTER™ “Relevance Engine” according to data sources such as time of day, traffic flow, weather, phase of the moon and flight time arrivals. LIVEPOSTER™ collaborated with Tate Britain to write over 400 copy lines to play alongside relevant artworks that were based on the various data sources.
The successful integration of multiple data sets into poster templates resulted in one of LIVEPOSTER™ most data rich campaigns yet. The campaign ran automatically producing approximately 14,400 executions, from a pool of 10 million possible unique combinations that could have been triggered over the 2 week live period.
The Tate Britain campaign was created in collaboration with Posterscope and Ocean Outdoor.

Nashville bike-share kiosks 'performing better than expected'.


Whenever Nashville is in the limelight, it's usually for music. Now the tourist destination known as "Music City" is being recognized for a different reason: its bike-sharing initiative. The recent success of the federal grant-funded program brought the city more attention, but little has been said about the role of kiosks in the bike-sharing trend. had a chat with Communications Director Andrea Champion of Nashville Downtown Partnership, which operates the stations, to get details on the kiosks and the community's response to the program.

Read the full story here.

Most people just ask for more stations, but they're expensive to fund. It costs $40 to 50,000 for a station, so we have to have sponsors.But the program is performing better than expected. We had 48,000 checkouts in 2013, and so far in 2014 we're just 150 shy of 40,000, so we're definitely going to outpace number of checkouts from last year.

From small radio manufacturer to global technology leader: Barco turns 80.

‘Your family’s essential friend’: with that baseline, Lucien Depuydt tried to sell the radios that he manufactured in his workshop, in the Belgian town of Poperinge. The small company that he founded in 1934 is now a worldwide technology leader that delivers visualization solutions to professional markets around the world.

The past 80 years have been a journey with ups and downs, with new markets and products and with new people paving the way for our future. One thing is for sure: every single year has been an exciting one.
While Depuydt considered his radios essential for families, today’s Barco solutions are crucial for radiologists to make quick, accurate and confident diagnoses and for traffic operators to keep the roads safe. They help the entertainment sector to wow their audiences and businessmen to collaborate and meet efficiently.

A constant quest for innovation
The secret to Barco’s growth and diversification? The technological boldness and openness to new ideas of Depuydt who, in the 1930s and 1940s, often travelled to the United States to discover the latest technologies, has remained one of Barco’s core values. Through the years, we have always ‘led by innovation’, developing groundbreaking products for new applications, in different market niches. Just like Lucien Depuydt did in Barco’s pioneering days … He’d surely be delighted to see how his ‘Belgian American Radio Corporation’ (Barco) has become the global market leader it is today!

LG vs Samsung OLED technology.

samsung oled tv vs lg display technology LG Display says True RGB OLED Tv can not compete with WRGB

LG Display says True RGB OLED-Tv can not compete with WRGB,

The Global communications Director Ken Hong, spoke at the IFA-2014 about LG-Displays OLED-Tv investemts and their competitior with True RGB OLED-Tv (Samsung).

LG Display bought the patent rights for the white OLED technology from KOdak nobody thought that this deal can be a successful business. Kodak developed the white OLED panel technology and LG bought this patents that allows to get this 80 percent plus yield. This decision brings LG-Display in a very good position their rivals can not compete with this technology, LG think no competitior can catch us for 2-3 years. I hope you can remember our article Why LG Display will dominate the OLED-TV panel market in 2014? By the way the LG pays 100 million dollar back in 2009 to get that kind of gold mine. LG invest a lot of money also in some new production lines to achieve high production quantities for its 4K OLED-Television. On the other side Samsung Display has no plans to introduce True Pixel RGB OLED-Tvs soon. Maybe we see 2015 with some new architecture technology some new panels from Samsung. And LG says our competitor says the customers are not ready for that kind of panels, LG thinks they’re not ready. They don’t know how to do it, they missed the boat and now the ones who are stuck with regular RGB OLED are never going to get 80 percent.”

Ken Hong: thinks that a production line using RGB technology is not ready to earn money. For small displays it is ok Super-Amoled is RGB technology but only small/medium sized. If you want to produce larger panels there are a lot of errors.
LG is ready to sale their 65 inch 65EC9700 4K OLED-Television in Oktober also in the United States.
The 65 inch 4K model will kost 10.000 Dollar, the 77 inch 4K model 77EG9700
will be ready for shipment in November for about 25.000 dollars.

LG Display use a Oxide TFT Backplane with improved TFT performance, this allowded to create large display size, high resolution and productivity.

Samsung FMM LTPS True RGB technology issues:
In the small/mid range AMOLED displays there are no problems with the manufacturing process. Samsung Display use here LTPS Backplane with FMM Fine Metal Mask. But if you want produce larger displays like television devices this technology has some technical limitation. Samsung Display is using an RGB separated AMOLED panel based on low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFT. At the moment January 2014 they can produce 10.000 sheets per month in their 8G production line.

Football AR experience on Giant Screen.

During the world cup 2014, Tune Group, the owner of Air Asia, held an event to watch the final of the world cup in Kuala Lumpur malls.

On a huge interactive screen equipped with a Kinect camera located in the Pavilion Shopping Mall, visitors were also invited to play to an augmented reality football game.

Each visitor was invited to take place in front of the screen to score a goal. When he kicks, the depth camera analyses the leg movement and reproduce the action in 3D on the screen. At the end of the action, a photo was taken and posted on the Facebook fan page.

The event was a real success! More than 60.000 visitors experience the AR Football game and talked about it on the social media.

The application has been designed and developed by Moving Walls, a Media Asset company owning several giant outdoor screens in Malaysia, using D’Fusion Pro augmented reality software.

World’s largest DOOH market

Top of the heap

The U.S. remained the world’s largest DOOH market last year, according to PQ, thanks in part to transit and a fillip in healthcare spending prompted by the Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare”. At $2.37bn, it was significantly ahead of China at $1.87bn.

The fastest-growing markets, however, were Brazil at 41.9 percent – aided by advertising expenditure and new rollouts alongside the World Cup – and Australia at 23.6 percent.

Digital out-of-home revenues are also powering ahead in the UK, with the latest figures from the Outdoor Media Centre reporting 30 percent year-on-year growth for the three months April to June.

The total spend of £68.3m ($114m) was the largest quarterly digital revenue ever recorded for the UK sector, representing just over a quarter of total outdoor expenditure – and the true sum is likely to have been even higher, since the outdoor industry organisation doesn’t track all digital out-of-home media properties.

Enormous Superclusters.

A Sizeable Supercluster 
Our celestial home just got a whole lot bigger -- on the astronomical map, at least. This week, a team of astronomers re-charted the supercluster of galaxies that includes the Milky Way, finding it to be 100 times bigger in volume and mass than previously thought. In a new study, published in the journal Nature, the researchers chronicled the motions of the galaxies, in order to determine the “gravitational landscape” of the local Universe. The team named the enormous supercluster Laniakea – Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven." Nature.

Projection studio electrifies Battersea Power Station for Heineken's Open Your City campaign.

Heineken invites Londoners to #OpenYourCity with an electrifying, 3D projection mapping show on Battersea Power Station, bringing the city alive to the sound of Jungle.


Projection Artworks used its video mapping expertise to create a spectacular show for Heineken’s Ignite London event, a one-off celebration at the capital’s iconic Battersea Power Station.
Developed alongside RPM, the projection featured bespoke content inspired by the London skyline and Heineken’s signature colour palette. The three-minute show also drew on the Open Your City theme, using 3D animation to create dramatic optical illusions showing the power station literally opening up.
Through a series of audio-reactive 3D projection effects, the famous landmark also came to life to the sound of Jungle, who played an exclusive set to over 1,000 lucky ticket-winners. Amongst other things, it became a towering speaker stack over 100m high, driven by the live music via an audio-reactive system developed by Projection Artworks.
Party-goers were also given a light-up Ignite bottle-holder, which illuminated the crowd’s drinks in time to the music, and also lit up when drunk from or touched with another bottle.
“The #OpenLondon concept really allowed us to push the architectural boundaries of Battersea Power Station,” said Kelly Eagle, who specialises in large-scale, outdoor projects at Projection Artworks. “We were able to create lots of especially spectacular optical illusions and 3D effects inspired by the ‘opening’ theme.”

Japanese artist, director and producer Nobumichi Asai has unveiled 
Omote, his latest project that uses projection mapping techniques to 
create stunning illusions on a model’s face. In his recently released video the model moves her head while projected graphics constantly 
transform how she appears; creating masks and cyber influenced visuals. 
He was inspired by the Japanese Noh mask.
Laser scanning was used to create a mesh that followed the contours of the model’s face and it’s rumoured that Asai is now looking to create a system the covers the whole body.

Asai has built up a large portfolio of work that includes a number of projection mapping projects, usually featuring huge backdrops including buildings, a dockyard and a large stage show for Subaru.

press release notification
SEOUL, Sep. 2 (Korea Bizwire) ― LG Electronics (LG), with design support from Swarovski, the renowned Austrian jewelry brand and world-leading manufacturer of high-quality crystals, will unveil a one-of-a-kind CURVED OLED TV at IFA Berlin. Featuring a streamlined stand studded with shimmering crystals complemented by the brilliant, precise colors of the OLED’s self-lighting pixels, this advanced TV exudes elegance beyond compare.

With a paper-thin depth of just 4mm and a weight of only 16kg, the LG CURVED OLED TV is the perfect showcase for Swarovski’s finest. Featuring LG’s stylish Crystal Stand, the ergonomically curved display appears to float on thin air, a breathtaking effect that helps to increase viewer immersion. To create this totally unique stand, approximately 460 luminescent Aurora Borealis crystals of three different sizes (SS8, 10 and 12) were applied by hand using specially made stencils. The result is a subtle but elegant sparkling pattern that turns a cutting-edge television into a work of art.

LG’s OLED TV offers unrivaled visual precision thanks to the company’s advanced pixel-dimming system and the inherent advantages of OLED technology. Viewers can see every pixel come alive and will enjoy the incredible realism of sharp, natural colors and infinite contrast ratio. A singular product that combines the best of technology with the best of design, the luxurious LG CURVED OLED TV with Swarovski crystals glitters and shines in more ways than one.

“We are excited to showcase this one-of-a kind TV ― our first collaboration with designers from Swarovski ― to visitors at IFA,” said Hyun-hwoi Ha, president and CEO of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “The epitome of luxury and refinement, Swarovski crystals and LG’s premium OLED TV complement each other perfectly. The crystals help to create an aesthetic that is, quite simply, gorgeous, while our OLED technology ensures a level of picture quality that is every bit as stunning as one could imagine.”

The limited edition LG OLED TV will be on display at IFA 2014 in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10 and will roll out to European customers in the fourth quarter of this year.

Nieuwe digitale reclamemast langs de A1 richting Hoevelaken



Zoals we al vaker dit jaar gezien hebben, groeit de markt van de digitale reclamemasten snel. Interbest heeft er al zes operationeel, Clear Channel startte in juli langs de A5 met een dubbele digitale mast en OOHA Media introduceert nu haar (tweede) digitale reclamescherm aan de A1. Deze reclamemast is aan de A1 tussen Barneveld en Hoevelaken, vlak voor het knooppunt Hoevelaken, gesitueerd. Het scherm is 60 m2 groot en hangt op slechts 16 meter van de rijbaan. De voorbijgangers zien het scherm echt in close up én haarscherp, dankzij de relatief hoge resolutie LED-schermen.
Met de realisatie van deze tweede digitale reclamemast in drie maanden wil OOHA Media naar eigen zeggen inspelen op de behoefte aan flexibel in te zetten reclamecampagnes. LED-schermen maken het mogelijk snel in te spelen op de actualiteit. Klanten kunnen veel sneller wisselen en gebruik maken van verschillende uitingen dankzij het gebruik van de digitale techniek. Digitale reclamemasten bieden nieuwe mogelijkheden in vergelijking met de traditionele masten. De allernieuwste technieken zorgen er voor dat reclame-uitingen in de hoogste beeldkwaliteit zichtbaar zijn. Een helder en scherp beeld, gecombineerd met prachtige kleuren, brengen advertenties als het ware tot leven. Elke zes seconden wisselt het beeld naar de volgende campagne in een vastgestelde volgorde.

Disney may use drones in theme park entertainment.

Drones may be going to Disneyland.
Though they may sound like they could exist only in Tomorrowland, Disney is working on ways to use drones in its entertainment productions.
Disney applied for three UAV-related patents, indicating that drones could hold marionette or projection screens for nighttime entertainment.
“The inventors recognized that presently there are no mechanisms for creating very large aerial displays such as a display that is reusable/repeatable, dynamic, and interactive,” the patent states.
To address that need, Disney’s R&D department is working to create a multi-drone aerial display system and a ground control station that could choreograph repeatable movements.
The three applications are:
With the drones, larger-than-life puppets could be mounted with rods to fly through the air.
“This is a significant improvement over prior flying characters, which typically were provided in the form of parade or other blimps/balloons filled with hot air or other gases and that had little and/or awkward articulation of any movable parts,” according to the patent.
The patent indicates that drones could even potentially replace fireworks, which can be dangerous and inconsistent. Instead, the patent calls for an aerial display system based on the floating pixel, or “flixel.” Each drone would carry a lighting assembly that could display images or colors, making use of the sky as a screen.
The patents were published Thursday and applied for by Clifford Wong, James Alexander Stark and Robert Scott Trowbridge, all a part of Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney’s design and development arm.
Drones have received a fair amount of both support and backlash in the past few years. Drones have been touted for their help in fields such as search and rescue, inspecting buildings and shooting Hollywood films. They’ve also brought up concerns over privacy and safety.
This isn’t the first time Disney has introduced a controversial technology. Last year, Disney introduced Magic Bands. The rubber wristbands act as a ticket, FastPass and hotel room key, drawing criticism as an NSA-style device.
