Utilizing Avery Dennison’s Vela™ smart window film, ActiveScene can be retrofitted to any window or glass surface. Controlled electronically, the film becomes opaque upon command to create a dynamic canvas where users can project a unique AV experience to their audiences, making use of previously underutilized glass wall or window space. When ActiveScene is not in use, the glass remains transparent.
“ActiveScene™ is a game-changing solution that brings together the best of Avery Dennison and Sharp/NEC,” said Rich McPherson, Senior Product Manager at Sharp NEC Display Solutions. “We’re always looking for new and exciting ways to provide customers with innovative solutions, and ActiveScene gives users the ability to transform unused space into dynamic video canvases with the push of a button.”
Ideal for a wide variety of applications, ActiveScene™ can be used to transform glass storefronts into large advertising displays, corporate conference room windows into dynamic privacy screens, glass-fronted museum vignettes into informative signage and more. Compared to standalone projection or LCD video walls, ActiveScene™ provides a turnkey, multi-function opportunity without bezels to distract from the image. The solution is available with three NEC Projector options – PX1004UL, PA803UL or P605UL – offering multiple brightness options to meet the needs of almost any space.
“Our partnership with Sharp/NEC enables us to mix the physical with the digital,” said Abby Monnot, Marketing Director at Avery Dennison. “The ability to transform existing real estate into an interactive, engaging solution that draws users in elevates what companies can do and gives them the opportunity to communicate like never before.”
The ActiveScene™ complete digital display solution from Sharp/NEC and Avery Dennison includes the NEC projector, lens and standard mount, VELA™ film, VELA™ designated controller, media player, basic Content Management System (CMS).
