Red Energy's new foyer shows how it's done

Red Energy's refurbishment of the Bryant & May factory in Richmond Victoria is an impressive achievement. So too is what they have done in the building foyer. Here is giant LED display screen deployed at an impressive scale and in dimensions that are sympathetic to the architecture.

How they have gone about creating screen content for it is also impressive. Special footage has been produced that helps to identify the Red Energy brand with the area, and thanks to Ci's content management system this content can be readily tailored to the shape of the display. If anyone wants an object lesson in how to succesfully put such a screen to good use, Red Energy is a great place to start.

Make reception areas more interesting with LED display

All around the world, tighter pixel pitch LED displays are helping make reception areas more interesting places to be. With the right screen and content management system you can provide some engaging visual experiences without breaking the bank. Take a video tour of the sort of thing on offer, displayed here on a 1.9mm pitch screen Ci recently installed in Melbourne.

Ci puts CSIRO in touch with a table

The touchtables Ci recently installed for the CSIRO Data 61 project highlight the reason why CSIRO has been an ongoing CI customer for decades. When there proved to be nothing off the shelf perfect for CSIRO's needs, Ci went about inventing it through a combination of products. Not only is the table the right size and touch technology for the task, it is also readily height adjustable.

Necessity is the mother of invention and probaby no-one understands that better than CSIRO. Like Ci, innovation is in their DNA.

Ci is entrusted with Adelaide's cultural pride & joy focal point

When Don Dunstan, premier of South Australia, declared Adelaide to be the Athens of the South and built the Adelaide Festival Centre all those years ago, the patch of ground shown above became Australia's focal point for the Arts nationally every two years. Culture vultures flocked to the Adelaide in large numbers, and still do today despite other states having since developed arts festivals of their own. Adelaide is still a national destination.

So given the importance of this public space to past and future arts festivals, it's rejuvenation was never going to be left to amateurs.  Not only did the design concept need to be engaging for such a significant public space, but the execution would also need to be first rate. Ci is therefore proud to have been chosen ahead of all those vying for this prestigious Hassall designed project.

Ci's proven track record for delivering prestige LED projects was doubtless a factor. Ci's impressive CV includes the first LED display screen at Chadstone Shopping Centre, the acclaimed light transparent media facade at Emporium and the world leading perimeter and parapet signage system installed at the MCG and Ethihad. Shopping centres in particular have been keen to engage Ci's services. A number of them have now made Ci their LED display partner of choice nationally. This will be the first big Ci LED project in South Australia. We don't expect it will be the last.
