We have an increased number of case studies, including Center Parcs, Very Beauty and Littlewoods, in which the live experience has been created to inform the DOOH campaign with compelling content. We have used a proprietary tool called Liveposter to implement these new initiatives, which allows the deployment of live data and content to change the creative on digital panels either singularly, nationally geo-targeted.
