installation, featuring Christie® MicroTiles® and content by Zebradog, selected as DSE’s first Apex of the Year award recipient.
The Apex awards honor innovation in the development and deployment of technology in the global digital out-of-home networks (DOOH) industry, while the Content Awards honor innovative and compelling content created for digital signage in the DOOH networks.
Chosen by an independent panel of five industry journalists, many of the following award recipients had one thing in common − they featured high quality Christie products and or Christie Managed Services for their integration or deployment support. Following last night’s award presentations, Christie’s partners took home seven awards in four categories on top of the Apex of the Year award. The categories included: Business, Industry & Government, Retail, Event Venues, Hospitality and Education & Healthcare.
Under the Education and Healthcare category Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery was honored with a Gold Apex Award, with content partner Zebradog.
Sun Life Financial won Apex Gold Award for Sun Life Financial BuzzWall™, installed at the Hollywood and Highland Centre (formerly the Kodak Theatre). The BuzzWall features Christie MicroTiles, with content created by partner Arsenal Media and installation by Christie Managed Services.
