JCDecaux Airport has launched a new large format digital out-of-home screen at Heathrow's T3 that will reach more than 8.8 million arriving passengers each year. The new DOOH screen is the first large-format interior digital site located within Terminal 3.
The new screen is situated head-on to passengers as they make their way into baggage claim, and consists of two 6.9 x 2.3 meter full-motion digital signage screens which dominate the arrivals route. This latest digital installation is a continuation of Heathrow and JCDecaux Airport's digital transformation, following on from the successful launch of Heathrow Gateway and T5 Motion Showcase earlier in 2016. Upgrades at Terminal 5 included 172 digital out-of-home screens at the main terminal, gate rooms and baggage claim areas, as well as entrance and drop-off locations, lounge, security and gates areas.
According to JCDecaux, 2017 will see JCDecaux Airport's digital portfolio expand even further, with the installation of Taxi Rank iVisions, a Business Lounge iVision network, and additional large format digital OOH opportunities.
Huawei, a leading ICT solutions provider, has signed a multi-year deal to be the site's launch partner. The screen's location and size is ideal to capture the attention of affluent, tech-savvy Chinese passengers that Huawei are trying to reach. Upgrading from static to digital gives Huawei the opportunity to fully engage with passengers with bold immersive messaging, while providing greater creative flexibility and increased memorability and recall from the audience.
