Looking for a digital display that will attract attention? Let’s be frank about it: a LCD monitor will not do it!

You probably walked pass LCD displays in shopping centres, exhibitions and many other venues without a single glance at them. Most likely you didn’t even notice that they were there. LCD displays look like the TVs at our homes and for this reason alone, no matter how much money is spent on producing the content, they simply haven’t got enough audience appeal.

A better option, much more effective than LCD, which can be achieved even on a low budget, is projection on foils. Foils can be applied to a range of surfaces, which may be already part of the décor or specially selected for the projection. Examples are glass cabinets, window frames, glass doors and glass panels. They can also be applied to curved surfaces. Projection surfaces, such as glass can be cut into interesting shapes and can be positioned at different locations, including ceiling. Foils are also highly effective as night display. This provides an enormous versatility of design.

In addition, the projection system can be linked to other devices, such as proximity detectors, which allow for the content to change or start when someone approaches, which is often used at museums.

Foils are available in different colours/densities. Clear foil (transparent projection) doesn’t obstruct the view or light. Even when the projection is on a large glass or acrylic panel, placed in front of a window, passers-by can look through it. Inside a shop or gallery, projection surfaces can be used as divider, without making the room look smaller.

Projection on transparent foils has been around for some time, but many people are still amazed by it and often stop for a closer look. This increases the chance that your message will be viewed and acted upon.
