Photos leap from One Financial Center across the street to South Station
*No “selfies” will be harmed in digital activation
Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE: CCO), in partnership with Aerva, will demonstrate how out-of-home (OOH) media has transformed itself from traditional billboards to an even more powerful, and engaging medium for brands to use in reaching consumers. Clear Channel Outdoor – Boston is hosting a VIP event at One Financial Center in Boston, overlooking Boston’s South Station which is home to multimedia and digital solutions from CCO.
At the event, a CCO photo booth will let Boston’s advertising VIPs capture “selfies.” CCO’s Cambridge-based partner, Aerva, will use their technology to display the selfies on South Station’s digital screens. This demonstration illustrates how marketers can engage consumers through out-of-home creative in real time to create or deepen a brand relationship.
Journalists are invited to witness how digital out-of-home media is amplifying its power as the last true broadcast medium with dynamic digital capabilities, integration with mobile devices and through new measures of accountability and insights. CCO-North America’s President and COO Suzanne Grimes will be on hand to discuss what’s next in the OOH transformation.
