Here’s a shot of a video screen that’s also an interactive menu — a touchscreen for ordering drinks from the bar on the 8th floor lobby of the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. No one was ordering at 10am, which I guess is a good sign.

The Middle Show (with Loopt sponsorship) is located in the back of thousands of NY Taxi Cabs – the first and only comedy show exclusively for this new mobile platform. Each episodes is two minutes long, to try and entertain the rider – so they don’t get bored with crappy commercials. The Middle Show is a late night show for a multi-platform experience.

A couple of great video moments I captured while traveling through London and Amsterdam. The first was captured by me using my Flip Mino camera while leaving the London Underground last week. I believe it was Victoria station — several of the major Tube stops had the same set up.
The next was aboveground at Victoria station, I got out my camera to video the large video billboard behind me, when I saw an AdWalker — a human video billboard. I got a quick shot of him before he noticed me taping him!
Last example, this one a standard outdoor billboard outside the Schiphol airport in Amsterdam. Nestled in between the static billboards across the road was a single video billboard. Which one do you think got the most attention?

got an email late last night from co-judge, Jason Kilar of Hulu.com, he said:
Though I don’t have a picture of it, will share one example of video popping up in place that I was very surprised by: I was on a subway in Beijing in August and it was very interesting because there were plasma screens outside the subway car lining the tunnel at the window level and time-synched perfectly such that you were able to look outside the window from inside a fast-moving subway car yet watch what looked like a video-advertisement playing out in “normal” time. Crazy.
Here’s an example worth sharing – this video screen sits outside a meeting room at the Gaylord Texan Resort. It can be programmed from the main desk to show info about what’s happening inside the room and to show ads that promote resort events.
