The ‘Mirage At Metropolis’ was a project specially developed in 2016 for British Columbia’s largest shopping mall, Metropolis at Metrotown. The four-storey complex in Burnaby, B.C., hosted a 360-degree audiovisual (AV) immersive experience in its main atrium, combining colourful, animated digital projection-mapped content with a mirrored floor and ceiling to create the illusion of infinity and greatly amplifying the visuals.
When one hears the term ‘digital signage,’ the first thing that comes to mind is the technology—or, more specifically, the hardware—behind such mainstream applications as menu boards and video walls. Technology, however, is just the means to an experience; it is not an experience in itself.

Siggraph, an annual educational event showcasing computer graphics and interactive applications, is coming to Vancouver this summer with juried selections of emerging technologies, including some with implications for digital signage.

Digital signage may seem like a magical technology, but it is only as effective as the content it displays, whether its purpose is to convey information, incite curiosity or inspire an emotional response.
The global digital signage market will experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 10 per cent in the education sector over the next four years, according to the latest forecast from Technavio, a technology research and advisory company.
