Technology in the workplace moves at a rapid rate and is one of the costliest areas in which to make mistakes when fitting out new premises. This is because the real cost is not in the purchase or installation of equipment but in the actual use of the technologies in the years that follow.
A few minutes wasted during meetings soon adds up to many hours when multiplied by the number of people in attendance and by the number of other rooms in which the same experience will be repeated. In large organizations this entails millions of dollars each year, well in excess of the cost of the equipment or Installation.
For workspaces to become responsive to need, technology must be part of what makes it all work, from the latest in collaboration products to customized furniture with the technology built in. Ci can help you on all fronts.
These days it is possible to put a giant media screen on the side of a building while at the same time letting sufficient light into the building interior to provide an acceptable view of the outside World.
The best proof you can get is at Melbourne’s prestigious Emporium shopping centre where Ci enabled the Buchan group to fulfill their dream of providing a light filled food court inside the centre while advertising revenue was being generated on the outside. Diners can see clearly through a giant LED display that from the pavement below is filled with a colourful moving image.
With Emporium, Ci saved the building owner considerable money and provided a demonstrably better product at the same time. When it comes to light transparent media facades, no other company in Australia is as well equipped to help you.

Interactivity offers engagement at a higher level. It puts people in control when searching for information, and allows them to discover items of interest on their own terms. This makes it a powerful means of communication.
So too is a very large screen. It can present images with high impact to command serious attention and deliver a far more immersive experience.
Ci have recently installed Australia’s first giant interactive LED wall at QUT and there is nothing else to match it in Australia. Operable via gesture or touch it provides independent zones within its giant display so that multiple users can interact with the wall simultaneously.
The technology involved was first developed for Sega world in Japan and is on the cutting edge of large-scale interactivity. Appropriate uses are corporate showcases, visitor centres, student centres, shopping plazas, hospitality and entertainment venues, museums, retailers and more.
Enquiries are welcome.
Digital signage can be far more than the simple display of screen content. More sophisticated system choices enable you to build your own media empire, to combine central management with local independence, and to successfully harness the creative capacity of an entire community rather than just a single end point and an overworked operator.
With the right control in place you can time messages for maximum impact, react to local stimuli such as camera analytics or the recognition of individuals through their smartphone. Ci offers a choice of content management options from the simplest to the most capable.
Wayfinding provides another challenge. The most successful wayfinding products recognize that most visitors already have the means in their pocket to navigate their way around. What’s missing is the information.
Included in Ci’s comprehensive digital signage and wayfinding offering is indoor mapping from MazeMap and iGirouette animated signposts.
Ci offers a range of digital media and display products to suit a wide variety of applications. No other range is as comprehensive. Ci can also help you succeed with content creation.
There are LED display screens for outside or inside buildings, including varieties that are light & air transparent or those that are flexible and able to be suspended in mid-air. All leading brands of LED display are available though Ci and each rates Ci highly as a project partner.
It’s not all LED. Ci also offers LCD walls, LCD digital signage, kiosk supply, two way IPTV systems and sophisticated wayfinding. Ci’s custom control and operations room is another popular service.
Some of the technologies Ci offer are exclusive such as the globally acclaimed Videro content management system and the multizone interactive LED walls it enables. Other such exclusives include animated signposts and ceiling tile LED panels.
Ci can also help you succeed with content creation.
The range of technology Ci can integrate for retailers is truly amazing. Large format display is only the beginning. It’s what becomes possible when you can combine data, touch and display that things really get interesting. Or when you combine cameras and display in ways that engage customers in an immersive experience.
Ci can provide the means to create some memorable shopping experiences that will demonstrably generate store traffic. Each would be tailored specifically to the retailer concerned and the customers they serve.
Wayfinding is another technology that Ci can integrate for retail along with a range of other customer interactions. Ci also offers the means to create interactive shop window LED displays that operate through glass. So if your client is a retailer, invite Ci to the table early.
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.
Ci is an unrivalled architectural resource for large format LED display, whether indoor or outdoor.

This clever product makes good use of existing infrastructure in order to enable display on a large scale. Conceived in Europe by LEDGO of the Netherlands it makes use of suspended ceiling bracketing to house specially engineered LED display ceiling tiles that can be readily daisy chained to display as one image. This means that ceilings, a previously under used asset for the purpose, can now be used for display and that stretches of ordinary ceiling tiling can be replaced by something extraordinary instead.
The design also makes project implementation easier. Retrospective installations are made very simple, and installations in yet to be built environments made more affordable. The ceiling tile technique also makes it very easy to move displays about to suit changes in floor layout.
In the corporate environment, striking content can be used above boardroom tables for high impact effect or the ceilings in reception areas can be brought alive with suitable content whether corporate or artistic.Retailers are also potential candidates for this product, as it enables them to use ceilings for general display or to highlight special merchandising areas directly underneath the screens.
The technology means suburban shopping centres can get a massive makeover at a modest cost. Airports and railway stations can use ceiling display space to relay important information to travellers in transit. Visitor centres can use ceilings as large format displays when wall space is limited.
