David Aleksandersen
Marketing Manager
Dataton
Abstract:
At 50 meters wide, 14 metres high and boasting 1.7 billion pixels, the new video wall at The Dubai Mall takes digital signage into a whole new realm. The wall has already won a hat-trick of world record titles, and is a jaw-dropping attraction for shoppers at the world's most visited retail destination with its two-storey high, wave-like configuration.rnrnAs the supplier of the content management, playback and control system, Dataton was involved in the project from the start. This session examines the challenges of working with brand-new technology on a huge scale and in a public area. It looks at the show control processes and requirements, and the implementation of a functional workflow for content creation to transform the 700 sqm surface into an effective and 'magnificent' billboard.
