Cinema Displays, iPad 2s used for video mosaics
As part of a special window display created for Fashion's Night Out, the New York-based department store Saks and Stylelist.com created an video display at the company's flagship 5th Avenue store, The Loop reports. The store partnered with Gin Lane Media to create a center window display using 64 iPad 2s to display a mosaic video pattern, along with two side windows which employed nine stacked 27-inch Cinema Displays in each window to show different mosaic video.
The displays will alternate between fashion imagery, tweets from around the world, streaming content and user-submitted photos. The mosaic video is accomplished using a custom app created by Gin Lane with local networking used to control transitions and content on each of the three windows. [via The Loop]
