Selfridges, a chain of high-end department stores based in the United Kingdom, recently needed to replace its in-window video wall display. The window—Window 3—faces onto London’s famed Oxford Street—renowned as one of the busiest shopping districts in the world. The video wall display is employed by Selfridges to advise customers on key in-store information, promote upcoming events, such as new product launches, book signings, and showcase new designers.
When it came time to renovate the Częstochowa Stradom railway station in Poland, aside from constructing new platforms and tunnels, it was also an opportunity to install a network of modern passenger information systems.
With sunny weather around 40% of the year, the railway faced a challenge—it required screens, which were not only bright enough to be seen in broad daylight, but also able to resist the weather and operate in a wide temperature range. To solve the problem, the railway turned to Polish-based system integrator DYSTEN, which specialized in designing, creating, and delivering intelligent passenger information solutions.
Neue Brünnen AG recently completed a digital signage project, powered by DynaScan high brightness LCDs, in its Shopping and Leisure Center Westside in Berne, Switzerland, providing a new avenue for the center to deliver information, entertainment and advertisements to visitors. With its modern architecture that allows natural sunlight to enter the center through the ceiling, Westside required a professional display solution that would be visible throughout the day.
To promote its high profile autumn/winter campaign, French Connection recently installed four DynaScan 65-inch high brightness LCDs in the storefront window of its London flagship store. Located in the City of Westminster in the West End of London, the shop sits on the world famous Oxford Street, Europe’s busiest shopping street, which sees over 200 million visitors each year.
When Malibu Presbyterian Church burned down in 2007 as a result of wildfires in the area, it took the opportunity to modernize the facility with new audio visual equipment when it came time to rebuild. Award-winning architectural design studio Domusstudio architecture designed a new modern facility comprised of large plate glass windows giving access to the breathtaking ocean views, and allowing a vast amount of external ambient light to enter the sanctuary.
During construction, the sanctuary was originally equipped with a video projector built into a niche in the ceiling – a common solution for house of worship display applications. It quickly became apparent, however, that the projector was simply not capable of producing a clear image with the high contrast needed in the brightly lit environment. Late morning sun would enter the facility during church services and wash out the image projected on the screen.
