2012 Best Digital Out-of-Home Campaign: Digital Signage 


Project: ASICS New York City Marathon Campaign
Client: ASICS
Submitted by: Inwindow Outdoor
Also contributing: CBS Outdoor, Vitro and OAG


Brief overview of the project/technology:

Inwindow Outdoor, CBS Outdoor, Vitro and OAG collaborated on the development and installation of a digital campaign for ASICS at the Columbus Circle subway station in Manhattan featuring a 64-foot long video wall running the length of the underground corridor.

Objectives of the deployment or the technology:

The campaign was designed to promote both ASICS and its sponsorship of the ING New York City Marathon, which was held on November 6, 2011. The technology incorporated was intended for the campaign to engage riders passing through the Columbus Circle station in a creative and fun way.

Results achieved relative to the objectives:

As of December 22, 2011, the video had been viewed more than 542,000 times on YouTube. Throughout the one-month engagement, brand ambassadors encouraged hundreds of people to actually run alongside the video wall. The campaign was seen by a countless number of people passing through the Columbus Circle station, which is the MTA’s 7th busiest station, serving more than 20 million riders annually.

Size and geographic location(s) of the deployment:

The video wall ran 64 feet in length using eight projectors across one large, edge-blended screen. The campaign ran at one location – the Columbus Circle subway station in New York City.
