we deliver and support the systems
used at Piccadilly Circus to run the
TDK and Piccadilly Lite billboards...
Piccadilly Circus is a bustling centerpiece of London which connects numerous famous streets and areas in London's busy West End.
Among other things, Piccadilly Circus is known for its big, spectacular advertising signs on the north-western corner between Regent Street and Shaftesbury Avenue. In the recent past most of these boards were neon signs, but these have gradually been replaced with LED screens over the last decade.
Digital content management company MT² and system integrator Beaver Group were already familiar with Barco technology, as they had previously worked on another Barco LED billboard at Piccadilly Circus in 2009 - Piccadilly Lite.
The new LED billboard for TDK uses the web-based Scala content management system to ensure seamless and reliable playback of content. Using this system, a variety of media formats can be played at this location, providing complete flexibility for the creative agencies involved.
"Brands want to be noticed, especially in an area like Piccadilly Circus, where there is already so much to look at."
Neill Macklin, MT²
