Technology, engineering and installation feats aside, one of the most impressive components of this feature is the innovative control system that YESCO designed to deliver content to the immense screen. " It was a challenge as there were no existing products on the market that could handle playing content files this large. To avoid requiring twelve, six, or even three computers to run the screen, we worked with our partners to develop a custom hardware / software solution that is capable of running the entire display from a single and very powerful PC," explains Brian Henry, Creative and Technical Director for YESCO's special projects team.
During the initial design process, the YESCO project team began to imagine the amazing content possibilities and opportunities that would be afforded by such dimension and definition. Providing a spectacular canvas to support and display the variety of national and international brands housed within the development was the most obvious priority for such an elaborate feature, though the opportunity to become a 'must see' attraction through experiential content segments and public interactivity was never overlooked. It was decided that four hours of each day would be dedicated to custom programming ranging from "mind-blowing" content illusions to supporting artistic animations and interactive special events all designed and created to cause viewers to stop, snap, post and tweet. In a heavily themed landscape, the Harmon Corner feature has defined itself as Vegas' first digital icon.
