D3 Completes Fifth LED Display for Forrest Media CityScreen Network

Wednesday, July 23, 2014


Birmingham, UK / July 23, 2014– The European Headquarters of D3 LED, LLC (D3), a global technology company that manufactures turnkey LED display solutions, today announced the completion of another high-profile LED billboard display for Forrest Media, the longest running privately owned outdoor advertising company in the UK. Located in Manchester, UK, this is the fifth LED billboard display the company has delivered for Forrest Media’s premium CityScreen network.

Retrofitted using the infrastructure of an existing Forrest Media digital sign, CityScreen Manchester is a 9m x 7m LED display that is prominently situated in the popular Piccadilly Gardens area. The 63 square metre display is elevated above the entrance to the City Tower and can be viewed from across a busy public square at the city centre.

D3’s robust turnkey solution included a patented 320mm² LED module design that can be manipulated to suit a variety of canvases while providing unmatched flexibility for retrofitting existing structures. D3 tailored its construction principal to complement existing steel structures at the CityScreen Manchester site; executing a considered approach for successful deployment and efficient ongoing service maintenance.

Mas“We are delighted to be working with Forrest Media on the second phase of this prestigious network,” said Sean Morrough, managing director at Dynamic Digital Displays Europe. “We are passionate about what we do, and our ability to offer clients real innovation with our turnkey LED solutions is why we have become a major player in the digital-out-of-home market,” concluded Morrough.

Advertisers were quick to take advantage of the new display, which is located in an extremely busy pedestrianized area with heavy footfall. British Airways, KIA and Paco Rabanne were named as the first brands featured on CityScreen Manchester when it launched in June.
