Times Square, New York (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Panasonic Eco Solutions North America and A2aMEDIA today announced the start of an installation project for a new, state-of-the-art, high resolution digital display, known as a spectacular, on the façade of the Millennium Broadway Hotel New York, over the heart of the famous Times Square “BowTie,” near W 44th Street, with visibility throughout Times Square. When completed in late spring 2013, it will be an exciting new digital canvas, and the largest solid single-faced LED display in the highest visibility advertising location in the world.
“We are thrilled to a have a prominent hotel like the Millennium Broadway Hotel New York in Times Square as our first-ever hotel venue installation,” said Andrew Melton, President of A2aMEDIA. “The application of this unique technology will transform the already remarkable hotel into an icon of architectural and digital media harmony.”
The Millennium Broadway Hotel Digital Display is designed to provide A2aMEDIA’s clients with an enormous visual impact, with approximately 7,200 square feet (44 feet wide by 162 feet high) of digital image surface area – over 10 times the size of a standard billboard. With over 50 million annual visitors, Times Square is the most visited attraction worldwide, and placement in proximity to Times Square offers A2aMEDIA’s clients exceptional visibility and reach, with the potential to achieve over 1.5 million daily impressions for digital images and messages, including full motion graphics. In addition, the new display also provides a unique way to drive brand commentary and social media feedback via a full suite of interactive features that include programs compatible with: Facebook, Twitter, Pic2Screen, Poll2Screen, Mobile Coupons, Mobile Contests, Text2Screen and more.
Brian Schuvart, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at A2aMEDIA said, “The display will also provide monetization opportunities for the Millennium Broadway Hotel New York, and a visually appealing advertising platform for regional, national and international organizations through flexible marketing programs that will match brands’ individuals’ objectives.”
