Right-Angle Fine Pitch LED Wall Centerpiece Of Arab National Bank Branch In Riyadh

This is a major branch of Arab National Bank in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with the digital components just completed and switched on by Dubai-based digital signage solutions firm 2point0 Concepts.

The branch on Tahlia Street, which is Riyadh’s main shopping strip, has a big mix of direct view LED and interactive LCD screens. The main feature is dual 1.8mm pitch LED displays set at a 90 degree angle, and playing ambient visualization content. There are also ambient LED strips near the interactive tellers, which change colors to signal the tellers are free or occupied, a queue management system and a holographic wayfinding system.

ANB, says 2point0’s Ammar Lashkari, designed this branch keeping in line with the Saudi vision 2030 future initiatives, as envisioned by its 30-year-old crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Chopper Hauls 300-Ft Projection-Mapped Screen Across Dubai Skyline

This is the world’s largest aerial projection screen, executed (unsurprisingly) in or more accurately over Dubai recently.

It involves a 300-foot fabric aerial screen towed by a Bell 212 Helicopter, while a second Bell 212 projected the video onto the screen, using projection mapping.

The content is a visual tribute to Shaikh Zayed, who Wikipedia tells me was the driving force behind the formation of the United Arab Emirates.

The very big screen was executed by the Aussie firm Remarkable Media, which specializes in this sort of thing.

The scale is impressive but the video and ones like it done (such as one for MTV in New York) suggests the image is very muted. For a whole bunch of reasons like cost, complexity, safety, etc etc, these are one-offs meant to generate media buzz.
