In a unique project that is as technologically challenging as it is visually arresting, Dataton WATCHOUT™ multi-display presentation and production system has been used to promote Samsung Electronics Australia’s latest generation of LED LiVE televisions throughout Australia.

When Samsung Electronics Australia and its Brand Experience Agency Jack Morton World Wide were looking for a way to promote the image quality of the company’s latest flat-screen TVs, they hatched (no pun intended) a plan to build a 6-metre tall giant hummingbird covered with TVs of various sizes and mounted at different angles. more

Brazilian Soccer Museum is top of the league with Dataton WATCHOUT

Inaugurated in April 1940, the Estádio Municipal Paulo Machado de Carvalho (colloquially known as ‘Pacaembu’) has been transformed by the addition of a new Museu do Futebol (Soccer Museum) which covers 6,900 square meters yet has been built without any alteration to the classical design of the arena’s exterior.
