Summer has officially arrived at the Orlando International Airport, and millions of travelers are in for a big treat. The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority held a press conference today to unveil new content for their massive video wall canvas, which Synect helped launch in September of 2016, and provide their latest summer travel estimates. Click Orlando reports that more than a million passengers will pass through MCO between now and July 8 in a video that features the video wall and new content.
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.
It’s been another banner year for Synect.
