The MARC Goes Digital With an LED Video Wall As cities grow, so does the demand for optimised urban spaces that speak to evolving mobility and consumer preferences. A statement piece amidst other high-rise buildings, The MARC (Maude and Rivonia Corner) in Sandton continues to challenge the status quo with its innovative design. The multi-use space is in the heart of Sandton, the epicentre of Johannesburg’s growth and development; attracting busy professionals and curious travellers alike. Eris Properties wanted to create a people-centric space to match the authenticity of a neighbourhood of class. Fine-detailed finishes aside – what really distinguishes this precinct from its surroundings, is its ability to create a sense of community where people live, work and play. When it comes to creating a lasting impression, it’s all about building an immersive environment for shoppers who value experience over products. The MARC partnered with DMX to elevate the on-site experience through captivating sensory solutions like curated background music and a high-impact digital signage solution. There is no denying the visual impact that dynamic content has on a customer. At least 80% of shoppers say digital signage captures their attention, making it the trendiest and most effective way to deliver on-brand messaging. For that first great impression in a high foot-traffic area, DMX installed a 2x4m LED video wall outside Entrance 1 facing Maude Street. “The MARC has been designed to deliver a unique, accessible and universal shopping journey for the contemporary consumer. Introducing captivating content through the LED screen speaks to our brand message of delivering the highest quality of customer experience.” – The MARC Marketing Manager, Pascalina Makwela Replacing printed signage with a digital alternative inspires engagement and reduces printing costs and deployment time by at least 90%. The DMX cloud-based Content Management System (CMS) allows marketers to skip tedious overnight print installations by enabling them to update content in minutes.
