Systems Contractor News - For many years now, the organizations running transportation hubs have looked to technology to help improve the trips of millions of travelers. We’ve seen flip-board timetables replaced by digital displays that can provide better, up-to-the minute information, and we’ve heard how directed audio announcements can improve the sound quality of a bustling space. But more and more, those in charge of transportation spaces are finding innovative ways to calm their weary passengers through art—which is not, of course, a huge leap from what many AV installations are already doing in these spaces.

Systems Contractor News - Manufacturers are continually recognized for their latest innovations—be it a glowing review in a magazine or a more formal award presentation. But integrators are often the unsung heroes of the AV world. ANC is thrilled to be recognized as one of the top installs of the year for our work at Pier 17 at Seaport District New York. A year-round public space that features restaurants, outdoor bars, and a venue for concerts, it’s also home to over 2,000 square feet of 4mm outdoor LED.

Sixteen:Nine - ANC got its start about 20 years ago as a rotational signage company that primarily serviced the pro sports business, and through the years, ANC has grown into a big tech services provider that’s been putting in the visual systems for many arenas and stadiums. More recently the company has found itself getting into digital out of home media, creating the same kinds of visual spectacle you might see in live sports, but instead in public areas or mass transportation hubs. A lot more than a conventional AV systems integrator, ANC is doing a ton of R&D and using product that will do things like light up the whole 360-degree view of an area with sync’d content. You might think, “Well that’s not all that new,” but ANC’s CTO Mark Stross explains why what he’s cooked up is different.
