DOOH.com Rides The Rapids

DOOH.com had the pleasure of visiting the Lee Valley White Water Adventure Centre this week for some team activities on the rapids. After getting suited up and taken through the safety training we took to the Olympic White Water Rapids with our instructor Jorge.

Spending the afternoon riding the rapids was a unique and exciting experience for the whole DOOH team. We all came away with smile on our faces and certainly felt it the next day. It was all worth it though.

Vodafone serves sports news in largest dynamic DOOH campaign

Vodafone today launches a two week activation, with the campaign message ‘from here’, which sees the largest fully dynamic DOOH campaign the country has ever seen. Running in excess of 1,000 screens across seven media owners publishing sport headlines in real-time to the nation.

The task of delivering the latest sports headlines, provided by Perform Group’s Omnisport service, was one that production house DOOH.com relished. In this media first, headlines are pulled in automatically from Omnisport in real-time and served up to all screens nationwide in minutes, meaning nobody is far from the latest sporting news.

The DOOH activity was conceived by MEC, and the execution was a collaborative effort between client agencies Kinetic Active, Ogilvy, and Perform, and produced by DOOH.com.

Andrew Phipps Newman, CEO and Founder, DOOH.com, said:
“The Vodafone campaign brief of ‘accessibility, from here, wherever you are, with the UK’s widest reaching network’ perfectly exemplifies and reflects our execution. The UK’s largest dynamic campaign, reaching more people than ever before with an accessible off the shelf solution. Further proving our industry has evolved to a ‘dynamic by default’ service”.

Weather reactive DOOH for BMW Mini goes topless

BMW Mini, in its first Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) activation, launches this May with weather reactive triggers to promote the Mini Cooper Black and Convertible Editions. The campaign runs on multiple media owner networks nationwide from 22nd May for two weeks.

Utilising DOOH.com’s Context system, weather reactive copy promoting different editions of the Mini Cooper are displayed on individual DOOH screens depending on the likelihood of the customer to have the roof of their car down. Warm, dry weather publishes the Mini Cooper Convertible Edition with other conditions showing the Black Edition creative.

The DOOH activity was conceived by MEC, and the execution was a collaborative effort between client agencies Kinetic Active, Brooklyn Brothers, and Smoke and Mirrors, and produced by DOOH.com.

Andrew Phipps-Newman, CEO and Founder, DOOH.com, said:
“The beauty of the BMW Mini execution is in its simplicity. Using Context’s own in-built weather triggers, linear creative is delivered to screen without the need for complicated dynamic deployments, enabling the client to enact a contextual DOOH activation in days rather than weeks and at a price point reflecting this. Context is very much the enabler of rapid and cost-effective DOOH deployments.”

Enjoy Rekorderlig whatever the weather with Dynamic DOOH

This May, Rekorderlig, Molson Coors’ premium cider brand, launches a nationwide dynamic digital out of home (DOOH) campaign. The campaign, which runs on multiple media owner networks in seven regions from 22nd May for two weeks, features weather reactive and regionalised copy to stimulate both on-trade and off-trade sales.

The campaign creative utilises DOOH.com’s Context system to deliver the regionalised weather reactive copy, that also combines day-of-week to cater for on and off-trade purchasing habits, for full motion screens and simpler time-based callouts for static DOOH sites. Introduced by Rekorderlig’s own weatherman, the creative advises the viewer of the upcoming weather conditions and draws from a creative matrix of over 130 messages all delivered dynamically and contextually.

The DOOH activity was conceived by Saatchi & Saatchi, and the execution was a collaborative effort between client agencies Zenith Optimedia and Kinetic Active, and produced by DOOH.com.

Andrew Phipps-Newman, CEO and Founder, DOOH.com, said:
“Molson Coors have really hit the ground running for their first DOOH campaign for Rekorderlig by combining different types of data feeds to deliver unique messaging from a vast creative matrix, painlessly. The Context system combines technology and best practice production techniques, together they simplify the delivery process guiding the client seamless through delivery to sign-off, allowing what would have been considered Dynamic files to be supplied to a Linear workflow”

Interactive Thunderbirds Mobile Experience Across the UK

Halifax has collaborated with Greenhouse Group and Kinetic to create a mobile-interactive Thunderbirds-themed game as part of a wider campaign to reach those people who aren’t ordinarily engaged with saving.

Running from April 14, 2017, the two-week experience will tour digital out-of-home screens across six shopping centres with players interacting with the game through their smartphones. The game sees users steering a Thunderbird 3 rocket through their devices to collect coins and avoid obstacles.

The hyper-local technology supporting the game is provided by Meshh, a contextualised mobile specialist, which was brought to the project through Kinetic’s OOH technology startup-incubator, KineticX.

This mobile-interactive experience is part of a wider campaign with Thunderbirds running across TV, online display and social media. It aims to drive awareness of saving with the Halifax and targets the audience in unique and engaging way.

Tim Male, Head of Halifax Innovation and Communications told us “We know that saving is difficult to make a priority, so it’s vital that we look at different ways to target and make savings a bit more engaging. Kinetic’s expertise with OOH media, as well as the strength of its technology partners, has been invaluable for targeting our audience effectively, creating great experiences that celebrate the rewards of savings of any size.”

Vicky Wharam, Senior Account Director at Kinetic added “Today’s audiences are now interacting with mobile more than any other device, and are usually found in everyone’s back pocket when on the move. It made perfect sense to us to engage the public through their most treasured devices as part of Halifax’s Savings campaign. Utilising our great network of technology innovators through KineticX, we’re looking forward to seeing the results.”

The mobile-interactive screens will tour Eldon Square in Newcastle, Manchester Arndale, St David’s Shopping Centre in Cardiff, Bluewater in Kent, Intu Derby and Cabot Square in Bristol. Partner agencies include media planning consultancy Greenhouse GroupM, creative agency Adam&EveDDB, experiential agency Ambient Media and DOOH.com.
