The St Enoch Centre shopping centre in Glasgow has unveiled a full motion digital outdoor screen with Ocean Outdoor.

Susan Nicol, St Enoch Centre’s general manager, said: "As well as the obvious commercial potential which the new screen will offers to advertisers, we also see excellent opportunities to use it to showcase community, cultural and civic information.

"We believe the screen will provide an excellent vehicle for interacting with visitors coming to Glasgow for events such as the Commonwealth Games and the MOBOs.

"However, now it is essential we think creatively about how best to utilise the allocation of viewing time which isn't dedicated to advertising, ensuring it is used productively to showcase the city's many attributes."

The 12.8 metre by 6.1 metre high definition screen is now located at the junction of Argyle Street and Buchanan Street.

Ocean Outdoor marketing director Richard Malton: "This is the first screen we are installing in Glasgow and the first full motion digital screen in a Scottish city centre. Glasgow was our first port of call and we had been looking at installing one there for a while.”

It is being suggested that the screen could be used to show events during the Commonwealth Games next year.
