Forrest Media launches Scotland's largest double digital display

Forrest Media has launched its newest digital superstructure in the heart of Glasgow;  The ‘Xpressway’
A spectacular ‘V’ angled double digital display, overlooking the main arterial Clydeside Expressway, delivering huge numbers of vehicles (over 1.75m fortnightly impacts) to and from Glasgow and connecting on to the M8 for Edinburgh and the West, the Clyde Tunnel and the M74 South, as well as to the centre of Glasgow itself.
Each face displays an impressive 50 square metres of high resolution image, mounted onto an instantly recognisable L.E.D. Forrest ellipse.
The site will operate as a 1 in 4 (1 minute loop) and early adopters include Facebook, Pepsi, Las Vegas Tourism and Land Rover.
Marc Keenan, Forrest’s MD stated “The Xpressway is, without question, the largest and most impactful advertising site in Scotland and is already being asked for by name.”
“This latest development brings our Glasgow premium digital offering up to 12 giant screens across the city and we will continue to invest in only the best, with further announcements coming very soon”.

Forest Launch ‘The Magnificent Seven’

Forrest is the first OOH Media Owner in the UK to deliver a geographically robust full giant digital offering encompassing an entire city.
With cover of 418,776 and 45.19% reach of the Greater Glasgow population,  no other media (with the exception of TV) can deliver such tremendous audiences to an advertiser.
Glasgow is the UK’s third largest city* and the Forrest Glasgow CityScreen Network offers Digital Out of Home advertisers a tremendous opportunity to target the 1.2 million Glaswegian population,  offering unavoidable impact at every major entry point into the City.
Available from the start of 2016, the 7 screens cover the main Northern, Eastern (Jan 2016*), Southern and Western approaches to the city, in conjunction with Forrest’s flagship Central screen on Union Street and the addition of brand new screens at the Quay Leisure Complex and the Glasgow Gateway on the Clyde Expressway (the cities’ busiest artery in and out of town).
The seven screen network guarantees exceptional impact and prestige for any advertiser.
The screens – all 44 sq.m or more in size (a 48 sheet is only 18sq m)  – deliver exceptional D3 L.E.D. premium resolution and have been specifically developed in high traffic stand-alone locations.
50% of the screens offer full motion capability.
