This weekend, the electrifying world of Formula 1 racing descends upon Las Vegas, transforming the city into a high-octane spectacle of speed and excitement.

As these engineering marvels race through the heart of the Strip, making their way around iconic landmarks and neon lights, there’s an added layer of excitement for technology and racing enthusiasts alike. Amidst the roar of engines and the cheering of crowds, Acquire Digital’s innovative LED installations stand as beacons of digital artistry and technological prowess. These installations not only complement the dynamic energy of the F1 race but also offer a unique visual experience that parallels the thrill and sophistication of the event.

Las Vegas is one of the most iconic areas in the world for bigger, brighter, and more exciting displays. Acquire is well placed to enable this to happen with an incredibly flexible platform designed for these Spectacular LED displays.

Here’s a closer look at two of our standout digital installations in Las Vegas that are a must-see while you’re immersed in the race weekend festivities.

Digital Pylon LED Installation at the Forum Shops:

Imagine a towering LED structure, brilliantly lighting up the Las Vegas Strip. Our Digital Pylon at the Forum Shops is a marvel of modern technology. Listed as a ‘must see’ attraction by Visit Las Vegas, this iconic sign features a custom-developed pixel mapping matrix, allowing for individual control of its segments, and synchronized audio and other screens along the Strip to provide for an immersive experience of artwork and advertising.

What sets the Pylon apart is its dynamic live transitions, seamlessly blending advertisements with themed transition content, all powered by Acquire’s core engine platform. With content crafted by the renowned Moment Factory, the display showcases innovative designs that echo classical Roman architecture. As the F1 cars speed past, make sure to catch a glimpse of this mesmerizing display.

Step into the Cosmopolitan Hotel and be greeted by another Acquire masterpiece. Our lobby installation is a bold statement in digital art, offering dynamic, engaging content that captivates visitors. Its technological prowess allows for simultaneous, synchronized playout of multiple 4K videos per column, with a failsafe backup player ensuring continuous operation with the minimum of equipment.

The Acquire Studio platform enabled The Cosmopolitan to trigger some new event-led content specially commissioned and launched for the F1 event. Using all eight columns individually but synchronized to tell the story, and unique audio for each part of the space.

The Acquire platform was chosen to replace a previous installation due to the features, ease of use, and stability of the platform, and was installed in an overall display upgrade through 2021-22.
