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.

Eyes of an Intern – by Jordan

Well, when everyone heard about them having internship, most of them were giving out a huge sigh, I wasn’t an exception because it means I got to work throughout the semester!

On the first day of internship, everything seems unfamiliar to me (Duh!). But one thing that I like about Ascend is that it isn’t like those typical corporate firms where you need to wear formals. Instead, Ascend allows you to wear smart casuals so long you complete the task given to you. I’m pretty sure they are even fine with you wearing singlet and slippers (just for laugh).

Intern exploring Kinect

Overall experience for my internship here was incredibly great! Doing stuff that I have been taught in poly and then get to apply the knowledge I gained from poly. Also, I was involved in development of gesture based interactive with Kinect and Leap Motion. I’m so grateful towards my supervisor, Jason who has given me so many opportunities to try out different software and technologies. Not forgetting to mention, I was assist in creating the company Christmas e-Card but of course, with much guidance and advises from fellow colleagues.

Besides the work in proper, the Ascend-ians and I hang out for lunch and dinner quite often. I can still remember that we went to Sentosa Wavehouse for Christmas celebration and gift exchange last year. All we did that day was surfed, ate and laughed! We had so much fun together even though we all felt like an Egyptian mummy on the following day.

I really love how Ascend foster their work culture — one where employees are encouraged to work hard and play hard. So I strongly recommend to those who are looking for internship, don’t give this company a miss! I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to learn new stuff here at Ascend!
