PEARL MEDIA AND DECOBIKE WHEEL OUT ON-BIKE ADVERTISING ACROSS SOUTH BEACH

RETAILER H&M SIGNS ON AS INAUGURAL ADVERTISER

First-Ever On-Bicycle Advertising Allows Brands to Own the Streets, Reach On-the-Go Consumers With Ecofriendly Program

MIAMI – April X, 2013 – Pearl Media today announced the company has partnered with Miami Beach’s DECOBIKE, a revolutionary public bicycle sharing and rental program, to launch the city’s first-ever, on-bicycle advertising solution. The out-of-home advertising alternative provides brands a cost-effective way to reach consumers across 95 percent of the exclusive Miami South Beach market. Retailer H&M has signed on as the first advertiser, utilizing the eco-friendly, on-bike advertising to promote its 2013 Conscious Collection, a more sustainable fashion line, and to drive traffic to the South Beach H&M retail store.

“Our DECOBIKE program is custom made for brands like H&M who want to actively reach consumers in a new, non-intrusive way. Your brand goes where the consumer goes, offering millions of active impressions,” said Josh Cohen, President/CEO of Pearl Media. “We are providing greater coverage, consumer penetration and brand awareness in one the country’s most challenging but sought out out-of-home markets.

H&M ads will run on 40 bike stations and on the baskets of more than 900 bikes throughout Miami’s South Beach through April 14. Ads are viewable by cars on the street and passers-by. Pearl Media can provide brand ambassadors and street teams to supplement brand awareness and offer product sampling and distribution. Social media applications including QR codes and NFC tags can also be incorporated to drive retail activity.

“DECOBIKE is dedicated to providing and operating world-class public bike sharing programs to forward-thinking cities, providing easy-to-use, environmentally conscious transportation throughout Miami’s South Beach,” said Ricardo Pierdant, President of DECOBIKE. “We’re thrilled to have a great retailer like H&M as a partner. Importantly, the program kiosk ads are the only large format ads available in Miami South Beach, other than bus shelters. I’m confident H&M will benefit materially.”

Pearl Wins Gold at DSE for Interactive 3D Projection

Pearl Media’s Chevy Giant Claw Game wins another Gold Award.

Last night at the Digital Signage Expo Awards in Las Vegas, Pearl Media took home another Gold Award in the Public Spaces category for its seminal Chevy Sonic Giant Claw Game. In partnership with Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Starcom, the Chevy experience was the first-ever interactive 3D projection.

Using a single-minded idea and the latest 3D interactive technology, consumers were able to navigate the giant 3D projected claw using a 3 foot stick shift at street level, in front of Hollywood’s storied Roosevelt Hotel – on which the game was projected. Hundreds of people took control of the device in an attempt to win prizes. One lucky winner walked away with the Grand Prize: a 2012 Chevy Sonic.

The interactive experience is now a Guinness World Record winner for the World’s Largest Claw Game.

By using the exterior architecture of Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas as a giant canvas, Pearl Media projected a 51,000-square-foot 3D mapping projection experience entitled “7 Continents, 17 Wonders of the World” poolside at the hotel. The show featured images of the famed Swimsuit issue’s supermodels, including cover model Kate Upton, surrounded by 3D images such as elephants and Easter Island-style moai. Continue reading

WATCH TONIGHT SI 3D Projection by Pearl Media

Dear Friends of Pearl Media,

This Wednesday February 13, at 11:00 PM EST, Pearl Media will be creating global lasting impressions for the launch of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. It will be our largest 3D projection, and one of the largest ever conceived. You can watch it live-streamed, from poolside at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, at any of the following locations:

This 3D immersive experience will encompass 51,000 square feet of the Caesars Palace architecture – that’s almost the length of the Saturn 5 rocket! The content is titled “7 Continents, 17 Wonders of the World.” Imagine those 17 wonders – including Kate Upton –  surrounded by 3D effects, on a building canvas of that magnitude. It will truly be an awesome sight to behold. The Pearl team is extremely proud of this content, and we’re sure you’ll be equally wowed when you tune in.

It has been an incredible first quarter for us, thanks to you. Since January 17, we’ve made a downtown Los Angeles building disappear on behalf of LoopNet and projected a 2012 NFL season “Rajun Tailgate” recap for Pepsi in New Orleans at the Super Bowl. We’re also implementing a projection experience for the opening of Tommy Hilfiger’s first Beverly Hills store – on the same night as the SI Swimsuit extravaganza.

There will be more to come before this quarter is over, and we’ll keep you posted.

In the interim, please enjoy the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 3D experience – you won’t regret it!

Kind regards,

 

Joshua Cohen
President/CEO
Pearl Media

Pearl Media’s projection renders LA building invisible

Pearl Media and Creative i Use 3D Technology to Make Building Vanish in Downtown L.A.

3D Experience Visually Demonstrates That ‘If A Commercial Property isn’t Advertised on LoopNet.com, it Might as Well be Invisible’

LOS ANGELES – January 18, 2013 – In a first-of-its-kind experience, Pearl Media, a non-traditional media company specializing in groundbreaking out-of-home brand experiences and Creative i, a Palo Alto-based integrated communications firm, teamed to erase a building from Los Angeles’ storied skyline last night for CoStar Group’s LoopNet.com, the #1 marketplace for commercial real estate online. Using state-of-the-art 3D projection technology, the companies visually demonstrated that ‘if a  commercial property isn’t advertised on LoopNet Premium Lister, it might as well be invisible.’ Onlookers watched as the 12-story building on W. 9th Street between S. Olive and Hill Street vanished right before their eyes.
 

Want to see yourself? Watch the video here.
 
Creative i developed an integrated communications program for LoopNet built around a simple, powerful message. The program culminated in an exclusive, VIP event celebrating L.A. commercial real estate luminaries, for which Creative i turned to Pearl Media to develop the first-of-its-kind 3D projection experience. In addition to creating the 3D projection, Pearl Media handled the full event production for the evening. Grammy® Award-winning band Train also took to the stage for a special performance during the much-anticipated event.

“We wanted to drive home LoopNet’s message within a visual experience that’s big, bold and undeniably bodacious,” said Rick Mathieson, Vice President and Creative Director at Creative i. “This 3D projection delivers on that objective – big time.”

“The disappearing building experience demonstrates Pearl Media’s ability to push the limits of 3D projection, and simply and beautifully demonstrates LoopNet’s brand promise, while creating a lasting impression with its core consumers,” said Josh Cohen, President and CEO of Pearl Media. “The great benefit of 3D projection is that it works as a live experience, which can then be shared exponentially online and via social media. This program also allowed us to showcase our 360 production capabilities. We created a breakthrough 3D projection, as well as designed and produced the staging, lighting and event for this A-list act and client.”

Starting today, consumers can enter to win an American Special Telecaster guitar by Fender signed by the Train at www.LoopNet.com/LATrafficJam. There, fans can earn a second entry by sharing the video of the vanishing building after they’ve submitted their entry.

Pearl Media, a leader in 3D architectural mapping who specializes in transforming buildings into unique, vibrant, interactive out-of-home experiences, has created large-scale projections for clients including Lexus, Chevy, THQ and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment – among others. To successfully achieve the illusion, Pearl Media utilized state-of-the-art, high-powered projectors, as well as its proprietary advanced 3D mapping technology, lighting, sound, shadows and animation to precisely map the 3D projection to the contours of the building.

Founded in 1995, LoopNet.com is the most heavily trafficked commercial real estate marketplace online with more than 6.5 million registered members and nearly 3.5 million unique monthly visitors. With the addition of thousands of new members per week, the company continues to unveil new offerings in mobile solutions, email campaign management tools and more – all designed to help commercial real estate brokers, owners and others market their properties as never before possible.
