10 Most Innovative Digital Signage Solutions
#1 The Highest Goal by Adidas
Adidas launched this campaign in Tokyo, placing the interactive projection 200 meters above the ground.
Users had to download an App to throw the football. The campaign was highly popular and was covered by media outlets across the world.
#2 Anti-smoking Campaign by Swedish Pharmacy Hjartat
Last year in December, Swedish pharmacy Hjartat deployed digital displays equipped with built-in smoke detectors in the streets of Stockholm.
The person in the display used to start coughing as soon as someone smoked near the billboard. This campaign was run with the slogan – “New year, new resolutions,” prompting users to adopt a healthier lifestyle and quit smoking.
#3 International Women’s Day campaign by Women’s Aid
Women’s Aid is a charity working against domestic violence. Launched on International Women’s Day in London, the above campaign depicted a woman badly beaten and bruised.
With facial recognition technology, the billboard was able to account for how many people were looking at it, and the bruises healed accordingly.
The advertisers wanted to convey that taking notice of the issue is the first step towards bringing the change.
#4 NCDV’ Drag Him Away’ Campaign
The National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV), UK, also launched an interactive billboard campaign at Euston Station asking people to intervene and stop domestic violence.
For interacting with the large screen and “drag the abuser” away, users need just to scan the featured QR code.
#5 Apolosophy by Apotek
Subway commuters in Stockholm were pleasantly shocked to see this innovative product launch. Ultrasonic sensors were employed to start a video loop as soon as a train arrived near the billboard.
#6 McDonald’s on Piccadilly Circus
This campaign perhaps drew its inspiration from the tourists at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The idea is simple yet very effective in engaging crowds.
#7 Unbelievable Bus Shelter by Pepsi Max
This one highlights how Digital Signage can be integrated with Augmented Reality to create mind-blowing effects, and increase engagement. People can be seen shooting a selfie video with immersive technology.
#8 Lookup by British Airways
This campaign helped British Airways highlight its long list of destinations.
They placed the antennae on the roof of nearby buildings. The antennae were designed to pick up data from the transponders of British Airways aircraft within 200 kilometers and relay it to an application designed for identifying the flights.
Few more systems were involved in the backend to ascertain the right timing, correct information, and also that the information was displayed only when an aircraft was visible to the naked eye.
#9 Responsive Facial Recognition by GMC
General Motors curated the world’s first responsive facial recognition system that profiled its audience via a small camera.
