INFINITI sets up largest Video Billboard in the region
Arabian Automobiles and Infiniti are on a creativity spree thinking up stuff that will guarantee eyeballs and cocked up ears. Just a few weeks ago, it was the orchestration of a Q50 Red Sport driving experience for the choreographed sway of the Dubai Fountains. And shortly afterwards, it was a show set up on the banks of Sheikh Zayed Road, with its incessant traffic flowing fast by.
The entire white wall of the Infiniti Centre was converted into a projection screen and promotion videos kept filling that space in a larger than life display of talent and the car that inspired it all. Once again created to highlight the Red Sport 400, the conversion employs three-dimensional technology and localized video mapping, a world first. The video displays innovation and inspirational stories shared by individuals that have experienced their potential to the fullest.
People inspired by INFINITI’s initiative may take to social media and add to the vibrant ‘Unleash Your Potential’ campaign by uploading fun and engaging videos to express their individuality through the means of the concept.
