“Como entidad que promueve la industria de la radiodifusión ante los responsables políticos y el público, we saw the need to have a large format screen in the main lobby that would act as a reference point for the community., to say 'these are the broadcasters'. With so much car and pedestrian traffic passing by, vimos que un gran pare videowall de señalización Led curvo era una ponderosa herramienta de visualización”, adds Tow
