We thank the hundreds of forward thinking clients colleagues and collaborators, we have worked with over the years, who have embraced the power of the WOW factor and made the following projects possible.
The Comcast Experience
One of the largest and highest resolution LED MediaWalls ever created. With a 10 million pixel canvas, images are beyond photorealistic and appear real and dimensional rather than representational. Periodically the MediaWall goes into a “rest state” and is able to seamlessly mimic the architecture and wood panels of the lobby.
Novartis Rotating AtlasMan
A 20’ high sculpture of an anatomical man holding a 7’ round WowScreen continuously rotated in the center of the Novartis booth. 4 synchronized projectors projected content on the screen as it rotated a full 360º. The sculpture served as a dynamic beacon attracting attendees to the booth across the exhibition hall. A tunnel experience featured paper-thin electroluminescent panels and interactive multimedia.
BMS Abilify Launches
10 Free-Floating different shaped WowScreens spanned a 40’ theater for the launch of Abilify, a drug indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia. The presentation was enhanced by the use of stereo wireless headsets using WowSound dimensional audio
The Latuda Experience
Attendees entered the main booth through a tunnel experience enhanced with variety of WOW technologies. LaserSound was dramatically used to re-create the experience of “Hearing Voices In Your Head” that often occur with patients suffering from Schizophrenia. Additionally HyperViewers, a custom iPad App, 3D Stereoscopic Medical Animation, and a Monolithic videowall enhanced the viewer experience.
Novo Nordisk and Sunovion R&D
Clients sometimes ask us for “Holographic” solution akin to the Star Wars Princess Leia effect. Alas, to date there is not a true dimensional /volumetric hologram available. But we have had great success utilizing HoloView, a Holographic-Like technology that creates the illusion of objects floating in space.
SUNOVION LED GLOBES
To highlight the theme of globalization for Sunovion’s Research and Development division we created animations that were played on round globes with embedded LED’s
G.W. BUSH PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY
A custom rig was created to film content for a 360º Degree Theater Experience surrounded by a 160’x 21’ immersive experience that greets visitors as they enter the building.
A large lightweight LED ceiling covered the booth and displayed a blood flow animation. A round interactive WowScreen App floated in space and, when attendees stepped on the carpet in front of the screen, panels of smart glass were activated to provide them with privacy when navigating through the content.
Virtual Reality Theater
A major networking company had us create a 3D experience that combined 3D VR Goggles and 3D Dimensional sound to engage top executives at its booth.
NYSE Event “History of Information”
EMC was looking for a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their flagship Symmetrix product on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. One of several deliverables was a innovative, high paced “Time Capsule” video piece that highlighted the “History of information…in a mere 55 seconds”.
4 Times Square
The only building in New York City that as part of the Times Square redevekopment project was zoned to include an electronic feature on its upper floors.
Airport See Thru 360º Kiosk
Airports asked us to create a novel way to clearly display dynamic flight information using See-Thru 360º kiosks.
Thirty synchronized LCD screens created a virtual portal through which visitors entered the Kaspersky Learning Experience world-class contentt optimized specifically for the venue.

New York Stock Exchange Virtual Reality Presentation Center
A Virtual Reality Presentation Room controlled by a Multi-Touch glass conference table.
Lunesta Rotating Theater
For the launch of the sleep medication Lunesta, we created individual HDTV viewing pods equipped with noise cancelling headsets playing WowSound. The entire theater was installed on a stage that rotated to enclose seated attendees in a private, protected viewing environment.
ASCO ONCOLOGY INTERACTIVE FUNDRAISER
The longer and faster attendees pedal the higher the donations for cancer research and treatment.
BMS Patient Survival Stories Gallery
LaserSound was employed to elegantly beam discrete audio to attendees as they navigated through high-resolution patient success story portraits.
AMGEN ASCO PROJECTION
3 20’ synchronized screens served as beacons for Amgen across the trade show floor.
PYRAMID MEDIA SCULPTURES
An interactive video sculptures attracted attendees to the booth and told a compelling story of bandwidth complexity and innovative solutions.
Apple Logo Screen
We welcomed attendees to an Apple users group conference with a WowScreen, cut in the shape of the Apple logo, suspended over the entrance to the venue.
GE Road Tour
Macy’s Anual Meeting
For Macy’s annual meeting we helped create a 700’ x 30” Virtual Reality environment fed by 21 synchronized video projectors. Outside the VR room meeting a Star shaped WowScreen projected each of the 1500 attendees' portraits in a fast paced video montage.
