Known as iGirouette, these animated signposts are what are deployed in Europe’s leading Smart Cities projects. They are made in France by Charvet, a well-respected premium signage manufacturer responsible for much of the transit signage in Western Europe.
These signposts help point your visitors in the right direction literally, whether on a pre-programmed rotation or on demand through a handheld app. Perfect for precincts with multiple points of interest they can encourage the download of a local app full of information useful for the visitor. They are particularly brilliant for areas with scores of possible shopping destinations, for tourist sites with multiple historic markers or for large campuses with multiple destinations like universities or hospitals.
In fact, once you put your mind to it there are plenty of applications for iGirouette. The kind of purpose for which these signs have been successfully deployed in Europe are Smart City blocks, shopping centres, tourist precincts, strip shopping zones, zoos, theme parks, universities, railway stations, sports stadiums, ski villages, race tracks, and more. Some are even deployed casually for large trade shows.
CI is the exclusive agent for this product in Australia, and enquiry is welcome from all architects and designers as well as direct from local government, state government, universities, schools, hospitals and sporting facilities.
For certain display requirements within workplace and learning spaces the days of LCD panels are numbered. Once you get above a certain screen size LED matrix display takes over. Likewise once you get over a certain brightness level LED display holds a clear advantage.
Sometimes these two attributes are needed at the same time, such as in a daylight filled corporate lobby, large training room or presentation facility. In such instances LCD panels fall well short of the mark and so does projection. The only thing that will do the job effectively is LED display.
Up until recently, what has held LED display back from dominating such applications has been the tightness of the pixel pitch available in LED product and the considerable cost. Today these formidable stumbling blocks have been largely overcome. LED display is now replacing projection in lecture theatres, theatrettes, large boardrooms and large meeting rooms. With tighter pixel displays, wider viewing angles and with screen dimensions readily scalable for picture perfect results, seamless LED display is winning on all fronts.
So if you’re looking to put an LCD screen, LCD wall or projector into a space, why not check whether there is a viable LED display alternative built for the purpose now available? No one wants technology that may be soon out of date.
