Geny Caloisi

The lobby area of Ernst & Young’s London HQ in the South Bank, has a new modern look with a large wall of Christie MicroTiles and large format LED from screen manufacturer Ignition ‘bookending’ the MicroTiles.

The wall display, made out of 160 Christie MicroTiles, shows current affairs news, financial news, Ernst & Young news feed tickers and live company information delivered in ‘tweet style’ speech bubbles.

Chris Heap from the Imperative Group spotted them and, being a good Citizen Journalist, kindly sent us the scoop and some photos from his Blackberry. Heap said, “The video wall is very impressive. It is a mix of digital art and information wrapped in a clever installation that works well in the space. Receptionists told me that Saturn Communications were involved in this deployment.”

The Saturn Communications Group is a software development company whose flagship product is Connectvision. Connectvision is a range of Microsoft Windows based software specifically developed to create powerful digital messaging channels for large screen and desktop.

Commenting on the new reception, Nigel Halkes, Ernst & Young’s London senior partner, said, “As the firm’s head quarters it is important that More London Place reflects our brand and meets the high standards expected by our clients and our people.

“Our new reception will improve the experience visitors have on entering the building and really demonstrate the global strengths of our business.”

The installation was carried out by Saville AV, Mode-AL Ltd and Christie. The content on the screens is Schedule by  ConnectVision and driven by a Hippotiser LED controller, AMX overall controller and a Biamp Nexia digital signal processor.
