Tate Modern is a unique building which is divided into three sections: two front walls and a tower, in which a couple of boat systems were installed in each. The other two projectors were used for the projection of the logo at the top of the Tower, a lighthouse in the city of London to raise awareness of The One Campaign.

La instalación realizada por XL Video se componía de una pantalla Led de gran formato con un proyector Barco NX6 y un servidor de medios para manejar el contenido.
As Paul McCauley, project manager at XL Video explains, "It has been a challenge for us since the beginning, since we had a limited truck access as well as very short line-up and properly place the projectors in the tower . The end result has been incredible; brightness and image quality of Barco projectors 40k has been excellent, despite the projection surface, which was brown brick ".
