The AQUOS Experience- Groundbreaking 26 feet tower of 43 Sharp AQUOSLCD televisions at Grand Central Terminal
Sharp revealed the groundbreaking tower of Aquos LCD televisions — the AQUOS Experience — in Grand Central Terminal, New York City’s treasured landmark. The AQUOS Experience will be on display throughout the month of December enhancing the holiday atmosphere in the terminal. The AQUOS Experience will stand a staggering 26 feet (8 meter) high on the bridge between the Main Concourse of Grand Central Terminal and Vanderbilt Hall. The structure will consist of 43 Sharp AQUOS LCD TVs in varying sizes, ranging from 19-inch screen class (18 ½” diagonal) through 52-inch screen class (52 1/32” diagonal), that form the shape of a tree. Video content, created by Fujisankei Communications International, will run in two to three minute vignettes, creating uniform scenic imagery that spans the height and width of the structure.
Sharp will be making a significant donation to The HOPE Program, a charity that equips its participants with the skills they need to find, keep, and advance in jobs. With Sharp’s donation, The HOPE Program will be able to launch the “Green Collar Project,” a new program to help people find green collar jobs in an environmental field.
