Charlottetown, PE (PRWEB) February 4, 2010
Organizers of Atlantic Canada House (http://www.atlanticcanadahouse.ca) announced today that they are partnering with ScreenScape (http://screenscape.net) to employ a network of dynamic screens at the Atlantic Canada House Pavilion during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games.
Located in the heart of Granville Island, Atlantic Canada House will provide a venue to showcase the people, the resources, and the many natural wonders of Atlantic Canada. A historical and popular venue, Granville Island is expecting over 35,000 visitors daily during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Dynamic screens, powered by ScreenScape, will be strategically positioned throughout the pavilion to present the colors and textures of Atlantic Canada in beautiful high definition video. They will also be used to recognize sponsors and provide basic logistical support including event schedules and way finding in what promises to be a multi-faceted, multi-venue complex.
“ScreenScape-powered screens will help Atlantic Canada House to provide an inspiring setting to help visitors to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games experience all that Atlantic Canada has to offer.” says Paulette Soloman, coordinator. “ScreenScape offers a one-of-a-kind pricing model that when combined with its flexibility and ease-of-use made it an obvious choice for this project. ScreenScape gives us the ability to quickly deploy multimedia to any number of screens from anywhere in the world. Our partners love it and the artists whom we will feature will love it too.
For two weeks, Canada's east coast will come alive on screens all over Atlantic Canada House.”
Mark Hemphill, ScreenScape Founder and Chief Product Officer, welcomed the opportunity to participate in the project. “We are thrilled to be able to provide technology support to Atlantic Canada House and to be a part of the Winter Games in Vancouver. ScreenScape is often characterized as a digital signage network when it is that and so much more. Here we have a world class cultural venue choosing ScreenScape for its power and flexibility as an interpretive presentation tool. It is an honor for us to have our technology chosen to showcase to the world all that Atlantic Canada has to offer - including ScreenScape itself.”
