LAKESIDE RETAIL & LEISURE DESTINATION
EPOCH SCREEN NETWORK TO INSPIRE CUSTOMERS AND ELEVATE BRANDS
As one of the largest out-of-town retail and leisure destinations in the UK, Lakeside wanted to explore the latest digital technologies to enhance visitor experience, support tenants and help brands flourish.
ADI designed and installed a network of full-motion LED screens across Lakeside’s bustling indoor atrium, and more recently at its new external leisure development.
We specified our pioneering Epoch displays, which are designed to offer a more immersive viewing experience and enhanced versatility for the client, with screens that seamlessly revolve between portrait and landscapes formats.

Innovative brand activation
The complex project saw ADI install a triple Epoch solution in the central Atrium, including back-to-back revolving and rotating screens, and a large Epoch 330 on the lift-shaft below.
All three co-ordinated displays combine to deliver one of the most unique Digital Out of Home assets in the UK, and a powerful platform for advertising. The triple installation has featured campaigns for brands including Microsoft, Universal Pictures, and JD Sports, with multi-format video and dynamic movement that excites, grabs attention and establishes greater engagement between visitors and brands.
Unique Leisure Experience
Lakeside’s new leisure extension features a large outdoor plaza, which required a unique entertainment experience. ADI were commissioned to create an identical pair of gold Epoch 230’s, which are situated side by side to provide a striking installation. The displays function as part of a wider showpiece attraction, which combines the giant screens, lighting, water features and audio during perfectly co-ordinated hourly performances that immerse and captivate visitors.
The Epochs support artistic and atmospheric eye candy, while also providing commercial functionality to show standard 16:9 advertising formats. Additionally, they have been developed by ADI to be able to form one single, super-wide synchronised digital canvas, which grabs attention due to the scale, movement and vibrant content.
The technically challenging installations have arguably created one of the most sophisticated digital platforms that exists in a UK retail and leisure venue. The Epoch screens are successful in delivering brand appeal, placemaking and visitor engagement, helping Lakeside achieve its objective of a day-out destination experience, while providing new valuable media revenue opportunities.
