Brief: ONGC was the organiser of Petrotech 2014, one of the largest events of the Oil & Gas Industries. Apart from being one of India’s largest companies being the organiser placed a special burden of expectation on their exhibit and ONGC chose a full complement of Interactive technologies to ensure they exceeded those expectations. The booth itself featured a MotionMagix™ Interactive Wall on an LCD screen with engaging quizzes and games to keep booth visitors entertained and engaged. The most innovative section of the exhibit featured an unusual coming together of the real and the virtual worlds. 4 rectangular MotionMagix™ Interactive Floors were brought together to form a single square display. Our edge blending technology brought the display together seamlessly. The display featured a scatter effect that welcomed booth visitors as they walked in but the eye was naturally drawn towards an actual traditional lamp setting with real flowers adorning the base merging with a similar bunch of virtual flowers on the interactive display. The merging of worlds didn’t end there though – the booth was inaugurated by the Union Petroleum Minister, Mr. Veerappa Moily, in a ceremony that involved not only the traditional cutting of the ribbon but a unique component on the MagixKiosk™. A symbolic opening of a virtual curtain preceded the minister signing on the interactive screen to declare the booth open – a singularly unique way to bring the magic of Interactivity to blending on-screen content to the real world.
Impact: The mix of approaches was hugely popular as is evidenced by the Best Theme Based Display Award won by ONGC.
