Pro-Direct LDN 19

Recursive designed and developed a unique 4k playback platform with interactive touch-based podiums installed at the ground breaking Pro Direct retail store in London. Designed to bridge the gap between bricks and mortar and online, the unique system allows high resolution video and images to support the product launches of all major brands such as Nike and Adidas. It does all this in real-time using links to the instore CMS as well as taking live feeds from all of Pro Direct’s social feeds.

Creating Concepts

We deployed our own unique in house content system called Pixel to drive the content throughout the Pro Direct store. Pixel is capable of connecting directly to any CMS system, to dynamically allow the remote publishing of content directly into the store as part of the overall business workflow. It also consumes live social feeds and allows multiple layers of interaction, with fuly synchronised playback of multiple contect feeds across video walls and multiple screens.
