Sunrises and sunsets are the most photo-worthy moments of the day, not just because of their beauty, but also as symbolic representations of new beginnings and endless opportunity. Audi wanted to tap into this imagery to tease the launch of its latest models, as a way to convey a sense of renewal. To accomplish this in a creative and eye-catching way, Astral installed a camera on a digital billboard, capturing the real-time city skyline in the background. These images were updated regularly and overlaid with the campaign headline, promoting the launch events.

Mediacom and COMBE collaborated with Astral to execute a major campaign at Montreal’s Central Station to promote the new line of beard care products from Just For Men.
By adapting facial recognition technology, a beard recognition device was built into a digital mural. Every time a bearded man was detected, a message played and spoke directly to him.Another example of how Astral is fueling brand possibilities.

DIGITAL • DIGITAL SUPERBOARD
McDonald’s, through its Media Agency, OMD, made use of Astral Out of Home’s Momentum service to boost its campaign, McJoueur. McDonald’s wanted to intensify the debate that is raging in the Greater Montreal area: who, between Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk, created the best McDonald’s burger? Each of the Montreal Canadiens created their own signature burgers, and put theirs to the test. Consumers could buy both burgers and then vote on their favourite. For maximum impact, large format digital boards in the Greater Montreal area were specifically chosen for this campaign. The digital outdoor campaign showed the real-time popularity of the burgers as they were purchased in McDonald’s restaurants.
Momentum, Astral Out of Home’s new service, brings life to digital ad campaigns by including dynamic content and allowing updates on campaigns in real-time.
