Lightbox, known for offering audio-enabled screens in shopping centres and other high-traffic areas in the United States markets at scale, will benefit from the addition of FrontRunner’s innovative WindowFront™ projection, audio and light recognition technologies, which can turn any retail window into a large-format, full-motion digital display.

“The windows of empty retail shops around the globe are quickly becoming immersive canvases, changing the future of public space,” says Nathan Elliott, Founder and CEO of FrontRunner. “Lightbox Unlimited, powered by FrontRunner Technologies, will digitally transform how we interact with new age media on a large scale, during this period of accelerated change.
