3M GTG presents the MetaTwistTower digital billboard at Munich Airport

The forum is fully equipped with state-of-the-art communications technology and catering facilities to support sporting activities, live broadcasts, presentations, demonstrations, conferences and launches of all sizes.

3M GTG was commissioned to develop a digital display system under the roofed section of the MAC Forum, and the company sought to redefine the classic approach of a digital billboard with the concept of a media installation in keeping with the venue’s spatial arrangement and uniqueness. As a result, the MetaTwistTower was created – a 10.6 metres high triangular tower with a 41m² rotating and revolving LED surface.

The installation has three layers, each with three LED panels on precisely engineered rotation and folding mechanisms. These nine connected elements can be adapted in format and orientation (square, landscape or portrait), and unfold to give a powerful performance with never-before-seen dynamics.  Switching between these formats, and the movement of the panels, is an integral part of the visual performance. When combined with synchronised content, the MetaTwistTower delivers a high impact advertising and media production tool for large-scale, public audience communcation.

The MetaTwistTower was showcased for the first time at Munich Airport‘s 20th anniversary event displaying the advertising campaigns of three major brands, as well as key highlights of the four day programme, including anniversary festivities, musical acts, comedians and live sports broadcasts. 

The iconic installation is now a major attraction of the airport and has set a benchmark for how brand owners can embrace digital to create greater impact and excitement with target audiences.
