When Monster.com relocated to their new headquarters, one of the most prominent building features was the large atrium space with a 30-foot ceiling off the reception lobby. To promote what Monster does for their clients they wanted to build a large scale dynamic video display for this space. They came up with a concept design that included a banner running around the wall that led to a central large monitor with an ‘x’ design leading to four monitors at each end. They asked WSP, one of the world’s leading professional services firms, to aid them in the build. The challenge was to finish within five weeks in order to present the system to Monster’s Board of Directors.
WSP brought Monster to VideoSonic in NYC to showcase some LED displays. VideoSonic assured that they could get the displays shipped from China by the time of installation, a task that many in the industry would call a miracle.
The project was finished on time and the Board of Directors was very impressed. Today, Monster utilizes the system to showcase user success stories, track social media, exhibit company goals and values, and greet and present to guests visiting the building. The system stands as a testament to what can be done, and how quickly it can be done, when distributors, integrators, and end users work as a team on a project.
