EXCOGITARE REACHES THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL

Second year running with PepsiCo for hospitality at the event

First in 2016 at Milan, then 2017 in Cardiff, Excogitare has provided multimedia skills and technologies for the two events.

In Milan, the 600 square meter area of PepsiCo, the sponsor of this major trophy, was equipped with 2 large LED walls, a video camera system for show cooking, a lighting system, loudspeaker system, and an audio system with DJ consoles. Excogitare and Bluefactoryevents also collaborated to produce an interactive application for Gatorade, where guests could take selfies in a “Champions” environment and personalize their Gatorade bottle.  The “Champions” photos then powered intense activity on the web.

In Cardiff, besides the hospitality area of the Village, equally sparkling, rich in design and technology, Excogitare also organised audio-video and lighting installations for an internal PepsiCo event with around 250 guests. This included a show of about an hour where every brand of the group involved in the UEFA sponsorship showcased their activities in diverse ways: videos, presentations, talk shows, parkour performances and soccer ball tricks…  concluding with the live singing of the UEFA anthem, the presentation of the trophy and the participation from their hotel in Cardiff of the fantastic Black Eyed Peas, the group chosen this year for the opening ceremony.

WITH PEPSICO AT MILAN DESIGN WEEK

Following a good start, the second time was great as well

Directly involved with PepsiCo US and working closely with the PepsiCo design department, headquarted in New York, Excogitare, Bluefactoryevents and Icet Studios created the space and audio, video and lighting installations for “MIX IT UP 2016 “at Superstudio 13 in Milan. An intriguing pop mix with design, music, fashion and culinary art, in collaboration with great talents from the international design industry such as Fabio Novembre, Karim Rashid, Lapo Elkann + Garage Italia Customs, Benjamin Hubert, Jeremy Scott, Design Group Italia and many others. 7 activities, 7 different concepts developed by 7 different designers for a single space, which experienced different moods with lights, sound and atmospheres, both during the day and night. An LED wall and monitors with interactive content, projections, lights, audio and VJ, with special effects including soap bubbles and smoke, were all followed by 360° recording, photo shoots and videos. The client’s trust in the team was reconfirmed for the 2017 edition with a new design in collaboration with Design Group Italia, Mathieu Lehanneur, Luca Nichetto, Fabio Novembre, Davide Oldani, Studio Job and Patricia Urquiola to offer an interactive and engaging showcase where the past, present and future converged in an exploration of how we eat and drink in a hyperconnected society. The project featured an LED wall, water screens, light effects, projections and DJ set.

In-situ LED wall with windows

Pharma company meeting for 250 participants

We decided to use a large 16x5m LED wall to bring to life create a meeting in the cruise ship terminal at Copenhagen. The main feature of the wall was its huge, very bright windows.
We also provided audio, video and lighting services in the break-out rooms, marketplace and poster gallery.

Simulating the degree of severity of psoriasis

The set-up of a stand for a major pharmaceutical company in an international congress of Dermatology (EADV 2015) in Copenhagen.

We used 45 square metres of AOTO 3.5 mm LEDs, for 3 large screens and multiple touch monitors. We also created several of the interactive applications on the stand.
Among these, the “PASI Projector” is of particular interest. This is an interactive system to display psoriasis marks on the hand and forearm, thereby attempting to raise awareness among doctors participating in the conference of this often neglected disease.
The interaction was facilitated by means of a special monitor with object recognition and a projector with high luminosity.
The solution was designed and developed by Excogitare.

Mix tecnologico per evento Pharma

Eular 2015

Congresso internazionale reumatologia a Roma, stand di 145 mq per multinazionale Pharma dove abbiamo fornito alcune “chicche” tecnologiche. Un tavolo interattivo molto performante ha reso disponibili pubblicazioni scientifiche e studi clinici con percorsi interattivi generati dal riconoscimento degli oggetti. Excogitare ha sviluppato anche l’App interattiva dove un’operatrice ha illustrato ai medici materiale riservato. Il tavolo ha ospitato un monitor 55” seamless (unico al mondo) che consente un numero “illimitato” di tocchi simultanei e il riconoscimento di oggetti per forma e dimensione ma anche tramite “marker”. Il monitor è seamless quindi è possibile unire di più monitor per percorsi interattivi unici. 
Excogitare inoltre ha realizzato (sviluppandone anche l’app) un’installazione interattiva con 3 archi alti 2,60mt di cui 2 rivestiti internamente con uno schermo a LED curvo. Un percorso emozionale con contenuti video attivati da un sensore di posizione e un audio di impatto ottenuto grazie all’utilizzo di speaker direzionali ad ultrasuoni. L’ultimo arco ha proposto approfondimenti per sensibilizzare i medici sull’artrite reumatoide con l’utilizzo di monitor touchscreen.
Lo stand ha ospitato anche una scultura “in movimento” (realizzata da Gruppo Interfiere), che ha rappresentato il meccanismo di attivazione della molecola responsabile della malattia. 

Banco Popolare Group

Partners’ meetings in 5 cities

For several years we have managed partners’ meetings, AGMs and EGMs for thisItalian banking group. In particular, we have handled the construction of the US facilities, including audio, video and lighting, as well as directing events. We have also been managed the televising of contributions via the multipoint videoconference link to various meeting locations. Events like these require absolute integrity, professionalism and organisation with thousands of people gathering to follow the reports on economic the group’s forecasts and to vote for the approval of the budget. We have managed several multipoint meetings, where up to 14,000 people have attended and voted simultaneously in five Italian cities.

ECFC 2013 – European Conference on Cystic Fibrosis

A thousand people against 10,000 bacteria

Novartis required a stand to communicate the characteristics of a specific product.A game created for a major pharmaceutical company featuring an iPad and MicroTiles™ proved very popular with the 1100 players who took part in killing approximately 10,000 bacteria by hurling foam balls at a wall composed of 35 MicroTiles™. The game united individual players or pairs in a virtual battle against the bacterium “Pseudomonas aeruginosa”, the major cause of serious damage from cystic fibrosis, with the drug for the treatment of the disease. In addition to killing the bacteria, the game also included several striking, symbolic features, which enhanced the action of the players. The features of the game included:on-stand registration via iPad; issuing the “weapons”, the foam balls; players’ names and scores on the MicroTiles™ wall; and a match lasting 30 seconds with a free prize for the winner. The game produced great customer satisfaction and attracted a high number of participants and the client has decided to replicate the game at a future event.All the technology and digital content created for the stand, was realized by us.

12 plasma screens form the bow of a submarine

A journey into the human body

We took care of the system design and production of 12 animations in 3D, each synchronized to a video server with high capacity remote control.
The audio and soundtrack were produced in Dolby Surround 5.1.
The resources available in 2001 for this type of multivision were very different from this of today. In those years it was a real challenge and an ambitious project that certainly gave us the opportunity to develop a unique experience in this field. This was a project that is still talked about today and was a source of pride for the whole team.

EAACI 2014 – European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology

In Copenhagen with Christie MicroTiles™ and interactive monitors

In June 2014 Novartis asked us to create a stand for the International Congress of Allergology EAACI Copenhagen to coordinate local suppliers of audio and video technology for symposiums with 400 doctors. We designed and created a 100m2 stand, with a “simple” interactive where two handsets – operated with an Arduino interface card – enabled different content to appear on two 46″monitors. An area with a large screen size of 3.6 meters x 2.7 meters, composed of 81 Christie MicroTiles™, completed the visual concept of the stand.

EADV 2014 Annual Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology

Two stands and a symposium

We managed the technological equipment for two adjoining stands of 100 square meters each and provided technical support for audio and video with 186 MicroTiles™ and 30 LCD seamless monitors in various solutions with a touch screen videowall and we produced digital content. One particularly interesting feature was the realization of a multi touch table with object recognition. By moving a solid spherical shape or a cube, delegates could access different content via the application. We developed dedicated software and content using an infrared touch screen device. We coordinated the technical direction for a symposium with 700 participants and a private streaming link to room in anexternal location with another 200 spectators. We optimized the content of the slides in line with the graphics of the event and made short animations and walk-in installations. We also created a web application that after the event allowed a slideshow to be viewed online, synchronized with speech and video contributions.
Finally, we developed a portal from which all the local offices of Novartis worldwide could download the applications used on the stands with instructions and source files so that they could be customized, translated and re-used in local markets.

European Cystic Fibosis Society (ECFS) Göteborg 2014

Stand and workshops for 800 participants

We created a stand of 60 square meters: it was small but packed full of activities. We also co-ordinated local suppliers of audio and video technology for several symposia. For the stand we have created a “virtual tree” – a multimedia installation formed from 10 iPads which 110 users interacted with. We even set up an augmented reality corner. The iPad application was designed to visualize the results of a satisfaction questionnaire in real time. After answering a questionnaire the user could check how their feedback related to that of the nine other participants. The interaction was handled by a local server which controlled the iPads via wi-fi. Meanwhile, augmented reality was used with two iMacs and two printed books displaying scientific content. The pages of the books were fitted with electronic tags. Two web cams were installed into a pair of table lamps that shone on the books. The user could browse the book and when the web cam read a tag, its content appeared on the computer monitors as a 3D animation. The stand also featured two 55″ monitors, where related content could be accessed and controlled using an iPad. The backdrop of the stand was dedicated to medical topics with monitors displaying videos and questionnaires.

Novartis required an especially information-rich stand. We created a videowall using 58 Christie MicroTiles™ (a new type of video display using rear projection) combined An eye-catching irregular composition, and supported by a media player with 4x Full HD resolution, making it possible to display rich content with high quality video. The specially designed graphics and the highly innovative Christie MicroTiles™ engaged participants and persuaded them to stay longer on the stand

Multi touch with object recognition

Are you planning to use a multi touch table? We have developed a new solution that allows the recognition of objects with different shapes using any type of monitor combined with an infrared touchscreen frame. Resting a solid cylinder on the screen rather than a cube, you can access different content via the application.
The results obtained are similar to the Samsung SUR40 (the old Microsoft Surface), but with a much more readily available technology, far less expensive and with the advantage of being able to use a monitor of any size.
