Travel Scene: Airport Poetry in the Digital Age With Monster Media

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - May 21, 2010) -  One shudders to think about the hours of boredom ensued by layovers and flight delays. Travelers now have a way to stay busy during their downtime with a groundbreaking multi-touch display that turns everyone into Edgar Allen Poe.

Monster Media, the global leader of out-of-home interactive advertising, has created the first ever multi-touch display of this size used in an airport environment. The massive nine linked LCD screens allow users to access a word bank to create and submit original works of poetry through a simple touch. For inspiration, participants can view previously submitted poems.

This approximately 8' by 12' multi-touch experience broadens the boundaries of immersive technology and allows for greater user engagement. With this innovative feature, the number of people capable of executing their works of art at one time is limitless. The dual-touch technology, multi-touch's precursor, only permits one user to activate the system at a time. 

"People who thrive on being busy now have something new and productive to do that will keep their minds off watching the clock while they wait," says Chris Beauchamp, CEO of Monster Media. "A multi-touch system has never been done on this scale before and we are thrilled to fuse together this groundbreaking technology with such a catchy concept."

Monster Media and Clear Channel Airports joined forces with Outdoor Advertising Group and Creature to present Microsoft Hotmail with this experience in the Seattle Airport (SEA-TAC).

SEA-TAC is a new venue for Monster Media, who currently has over 30 installations in airports domestically. This permanent system is the first to have multi-touch added to the gestural and mobile phone technology that already exists on all Monster airport displays. 

The Microsoft Hotmail ad will launch on May 21 and run through June 30. Monster Media will monitor the display around the clock and track the total number of users to provide Microsoft with an accurate ROI.
