NEC Solutions Zone
Orb is Ireland largest street side network, targeting people on the move. Rushing for Yoga (there’s a paradox), on the coffee run, popping out for a sandwich, going for dinner, meeting friends, stopped at lights, walking to work, going out… are all easy every day ways to see Orb screens.
Digital meets DOOH - Recently significant synergies have emerged between traditional digital advertising and DOOH. Most exciting is the extension of Supply Side Platforms (SSP’s) to include DOOH networks. Orb’s key partnerships facilitate digital planners and buyers to extend their portfolio onto DOOH. Campaigns are fully programmatic in design, consistent with digital metrics and include the additional benefit of being ADBLOCKER FREE. RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT MESSAGE, RIGHT TIME
The Orb screens are strategically located in high density foot-fall hotspots. We bring Digital Out of Home beyond the traditional mall and transport clusters into the very heart of the action. City centre, down town, busy commercial hubs, creative quarters, entertaining and eating areas define our focus.
High Bright - Sunshine makes us happy, we love blue skies and clear days. Digital Screens are not such fans! Sunlight can dim down screens in day time and make them invisible. The NEC Orb screens are super High-Bright… up to 2700 candelas! This means your campaign is super bright, always on all the time.
Evolution of Advertising - Out of home advertising is changing in remarkable ways, fast. Orb is at the leading edge of this growth curve. What once was analogue turned digital, then became connected (online), now is embedded with intelligence and will soon become autonomous.
Analytics Enabled - Embedded sensors and specialist software transform the Orb network into a bespoke data accumulator. This data helps our clients build business intelligence, and make better decisions. With the war on awareness at an all-time peak, more people are hit with more messages than ever before. Orb allows brands measure exactly the effectiveness of each campaign.

THE ODEON LEICESTER SQUARE - Lighting up London`s home of entertainment
NEC Display Solutions has installed one of the largest displays of its kind in a public square, an LED digital display measuring 107 square metres, on the facade of the ODEON Leicester Square in London’s West End. The huge display, the size of half a basketball court, replaces the previous paper poster board and is flanked by two 18 square metre displays in one of the UK’s most prominent locations, which welcomes more than 90 million tourists every year.
THE CHALLENGE - The installation of the new screens will allow ODEON Leicester Square to instantly change what is displayed, eliminating the need to regularly hire traditional ‘cherry picker’ lifts to change what is displayed on the poster boards, making the screens a more environmentally friendly alternative to displaying posters.
The new screens will also divide into multiple displays, allowing ODEON to screen different content simultaneously, a feature which will be utilised during premieres where live film footage of the red carpet can be screened alongside clips of the film.
THE RESULT - Simon Jackson, Vice President, NEC Display Solutions, comments, "This display has to be seen to be believed. It really is an impressive sight, and a tremendous achievement for NEC and ODEON. Given consumer expectations for video content to inform, delight and engage, this type of display sets new standards in delivering a variety of information in real-time."
The trio of screens will display images for the latest movies and, during events such as premieres, live footage including celebrity interviews will be screened for the passing public to view. Officially launched at the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in November 2013, the displays bring a highly engaging instalment to London’s West End.
Andy Edge, Commercial Director at ODEON, comments, "We are really excited to launch the new LED screens at ODEON Leicester Square. It is an iconic film destination that has become synonymous with red-carpet film premieres, so we are thrilled to be able to move the premiere experience into the digital age with these state of the art LED screens. The recent regeneration of Leicester Square has breathed new life in to the area, and we hope that these screens, which are the largest of their kind in Europe, will help re-assert the square’s position as London’s home of entertainment."
