5 Quick Facts about Digital Signage

Over recent times, we have seen a phenomenal rise in the number of brands using Digital Signage to transform their traditional bricks-and-mortar stores and to engage their customers more effectively.

As we walk around shopping malls, fashion boutiques, retail stores, restaurants and even galleries, seeing LED Screens, LCD Screens or Interactive Way-finding Directory has become commonplace. The concept is simple: a display in public places which utilizes video or multimedia features to advertise or inform. These displays come in all shapes and sizes.

After Hong Kong, Berlin and Bangkok, French luxury brand Louis Vuitton is bringing its Time Capsule exhibition to Singapore. The brand’s innovative Time Capsule machine takes visitors on a visual journey through the label’s landmark innovations in technology and design over 160 years.

Ascend Com is honoured to be involved in this Time Capsule exhibition, showcasing a series of cutting-edge display technologies, including the super vivid, highly sensory P2.84 LED Displays in the Magic Malle room and more than 10 sets of 84” ultra-HD digital screens within the capsule.

For the first time ever, guests will have unprecedented access to some of the most valuable pieces from the Louis Vuitton archives and the opportunity to witness French artisans demonstrate traditional leatherwork skills that remain as relevant today as they have been practised within the walls of Asnieres in the past century.

The immersive exhibition then follows a visual timeline, featuring the codes of the house, journeys around the world, the label’s various collaboration with artists and architects, the magic of the Malle (where it all started for the brand – the trunk) and the artisans who create these bespoke pieces and work within the atelier.

Stitches of Love — Hidden Blessings in Children’s Clothing and Accessories is a special exhibition co-presented by Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH) and the Memorial Museum of Generalissimo Sun Yat-sen’s Mansion from Guangzhou, China.

The Enchanted Garden @ Singapore Changi Airport

Image

Have you ever been curious to see what a “robotic garden” looks like in real?

Changi Airport Group (CAG) has recently unveiled a new themed garden, Enchanted Garden. It’s an interactive, mechanical garden featuring thousand plants of different species. The garden will come alive with the recorded nature sound-scapes, which triggered by IR sensors hidden under the wooden surface. Designed and built by Kingsmen, Ascend worked together to bring an immersive and interactive experience to the passengers who visit Enchanted Garden.

Nestled at Changi Airport Terminal 2 Departure Transit Lounge, passengers can take a breather and enjoy a relaxing experience of strolling through a serene sanctuary from the tiring long haul flights.

Enchanted Garden is not just a pretty garden but also an interactive and engaging garden. Passengers will be able to see mechanical flowers “bloom” before their eyes by walking along the footpath. For your knowledge, the footpaths have been installed with infrared sensors that trigger different sounds of nature which was taken and recorded from the dense rainforests of Sarawak, Borneo.

Fibre-optic and LED lighting were embedded within the timbers, forming a carpet of sparkling lights in footpaths.

The centrepiece of the garden comprises four giant glass bouquet sculptures, carefully decorated with a mosaic of reflective and shimmering stained-glass.

Seems cool and fun? Yes, it’s real cool and awesome. So if you happen to travel back to Changi Airport Terminal 2, don’t forget to drop by and enjoy the nature ambience of Enchanted Garden.
