What’s sticky and sweet and looks like Michael Myers? A winning entry into Synect’s caramel apple decorating competition, apparently. Last week we rounded up the team to cap off our fourth annual Harvest Week Celebration with a sugary contest to see who could create the best ghost, ghoul, or adorable critter.
Behind the Scenes
SIXTEEN:NINE is an online news and analysis publication focused on the digital signage industry. Founding Editor Dave Haynes is a voice of authority in a crowded design and technology landscape, which is why were thrilled when he invited Synect founder and CEO Yahav Ran to join him for a podcast on big digital canvases and digital materials.
Where does one of the largest video walls in the world start? For the Orlando International Airport, it starts with an international tour of airports to see the latest passenger experience technologies. And it ends with a custom digital media ecosystem—over 1,500 feet of digital materials that shape and enhance the airport experience.
One of the hardest things about working with video walls is that they simply must be seen. No picture, no video, no virtual environment can replicate the experience of standing in front of so many millions of vibrant pixels, all working in concert to deliver a visual show unlike any other.
It’s a challenge we’ve grappled with for years. Enter LG Electronics, who worked with us to develop a state-of-the-art traveling video wall using their beautiful, super-narrow bezel premium display.
InfoComm is the biggest event of the year for the commercial audiovisual industry, and this year Synect CEO and Founder Yahav Ran has been invited to share his expertise on big canvases. His talk is part of a series exploring video walls, projection, and other larger-than-life installations.
As we close the book on 2016 and gear up for the year to come, the Synect team has taken a little time to reflect, de-stress, and refocus.
A weeklong series of two-way employee and manager reviews raised our collective spirits—along with the occasional eyebrow—and gave each of us a unique opportunity to talk candidly about where we’ve been and where we want to go.

Last month, the press reported on the new, 700-screen video walls being developed at Orlando International Airport. The sophisticated content strategy for the airport includes live airport data like wait-times through security, destination time and weather, Flight information Display (FIDS) data, and more.
We kicked off our third annual harvest week with an epic decades-themed costume contest. The official winners haven’t been announced yet, but we had some legit 80s-style ensembles. We do our hair the way we do our video walls. Big. Happy Halloween from Synect.
