To mark the 600th anniversary of Prague’s preposterously complex Astronomical Clock, video mapping specialists The Macula, aided by Lukáš Duběda and Michal Kotek, projected a stunning 10-minute-long animation against the clock’s facade. The projection itself was done by avmedia.cz. Four months of work, 5000×1200 resolution, 2x Christie 18K HD projectors.
It’s not only the very good job of Omnivex in this project that we admire, but also the professional video that accompanies the case study. A lively video and a very good marketing tool that many DS companies lack.
Nicely done Omnivex

Companies from all over Europe applied, among others from Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Israel and Cyprus. The interest in the award as part of the Digital Signage World also demonstrates the great significance accorded to this “fair within the fair“. The Digital Signage World which has been part of viscom for the last three years is the largest presentation of examples of applications worldwide and displays complete solutions for the retail sector, information and route guiding systems, interactivity and content.
The nominees for the Digital Signage Best Practice Award will also be presented to visitors at the trade fair. The award presentation ceremony will take place during the “viscom night” on 5 November 2010 starting at 7 p.m. in the “Ratskeller” restaurant in the Frankfurt city hall complex.
