This system creates a functional solution to an everyday problem apart from location-based services has created the verdict of the jury. The combination of a classical process with telemetric data and an intuitive guidance system as despite some weaknesses in the user interface with great potential.
MOI – FYC consists of a large touch screen with a card reader. The operator Finn Park offers the users of parking spaces alone is by swiping the card’s parking lot of information. Important component of the system is the positioning and routing to the host vehicle.
A continuous signs and park management was the goal that Palko Interactive has implemented this way for Finn Park.

They offer the users in addition to routing to the car additional information about attractions and services in their immediate surroundings, such as shopping, restaurants, or attractions.
Amaliehaven is a care home for older people who want to keep the comfort of your own home, but need 24-hour care.

In the category Retail Design the new, fully digital shop Interior of the real estate offices Dahler and Company, which was developed by Visual Art was Germany. With the aim to lure customers into the store and dispense more and more paper products, an overall modern, contemporary image was transported.In shop windows, marketing messages were communicated. Digital Estate exposés were integrated on the wall on one side of the store, also shown on large touch screens. iPads assist the customer service.
The customers get the opportunity to examine objects in the store. The jury was impressed with the solution that was perfectly suited to the target group and in interaction with the whole store design creates an emotional experience space. On the one hand a successful counterpoint to the competition is set in the network, on the other hand the franchise concept remains recognisable.

LEDCON SYSTEMS GMBH AWARD
For shop window LED display of Den Norske Bank, the company together with LEDCON Systems GmbH received the Special Award 2013. The winner is not a traditional digital signage project and yet from the moment the jury was fascinated how it effectively and efficiently reconciles the simple clarity of this lighting system in form and function.
A total of 620 high-resolution LED video display modules were installed in the newly designed flagship stores of the bank. In the four stores in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim there is a video surface that is ideal for information, advertising and entertainment, and immediately catches the eye through the creative arrangement of the modules developed. The LED display in the window is perfectly integrated into the design of the stores. This was made possible by the attachment of devices to a single vertical rod, concealed cabling and painted in company colours.
The individual LED modules are arranged so that, despite the extensive LED installation still gets enough sunlight into the room. The solution architect is a thoughtful and detailed elaborate tool that artfully blends as an information item in the physical design. The system was also creative with its back – an aspect which normally gets little attention in the digital signage. The project succeeds where few digital signage projects can claim: designers and architects love it.
