When Fujitec, a leading Japanese company in the manufacturing and installation of elevators, escalators, and moving walkway systems, approached O2K with a vision to transform the conventional elevator experience into an immersive sensory journey for its user, it wasn't just a project - it was the creation of a whole new world.
With its global presence and reputation for safety, reliability, and innovative design, Fujitec needed an AV solution that would match their high standards. And that's where O2K stepped in - taking on the challenge to elevate the elevator experience to new heights. The result was nothing short of extraordinary - an out- of-the-world experience that was the first of its kind in the world. In their 25 years of providing AV solutions, this project stands out as a testament to O2K's commitment to innovation and excellence.
As exciting as the project was, O2K understood that the challenges presented by Fujitec's requirement were no easy feat. Nevertheless, the team eagerly embarked on the project, employing their experience and expertise to deliver a unique and innovative solution that brought the client’s vision to life.
The initial phase involved a detailed analysis of the project requirement including a thorough research on various types of displays, including LCD, LED, and Active LED, that would perfectly provide this immersive experience. The team was tasked with finding a product that could withstand the physical demands of a moving lift. Their diligent efforts paid off when they identified LG's OLED displays that provide high- resolution and dynamic color contrast, meeting the installation’s unique requirements. Happy with the outcome, Fujitec approved the design without any reservations.
The O2K team faced numerous challenges during the implementation of the project, ranging from unexpected delays due to Covid-19 to design and infrastructural hurdles. Each challenge was tackled by the O2K team with creativity and persistence, leading to an extraordinary experience for the lift users.
The team at O2K tackled this issue by developing a special mounting mechanism that securely held the displays in place despite the high-speed lift movement. The mechanism was carefully designed with toughened glass to protect the floor displays and prevent any damage during fast movement. This solution not only met the technical requirements but also ensured the safety of the displays and the lift users.
With all the visual elements in place, O2K installed a 5.1 audio system to complement the immersive video experience in the lift area. The audio system had to be carefully tuned in a reflective environment and placed inside the lift to ensure an immersive audio experience.
An effective visual component was essential to the success of the project. Recognizing the importance of this aspect, O2K developed visually stunning and highly realistic immersive content that took passengers on a thrilling ride to the skies for an unforgettable experience.
After the completion of the lift and its first successful ride, Fujitec expressed their satisfaction with the final outcome, stating that 'Just after a couple of requirement briefs, they proposed a design that matched our concept and vision. They truly delivered a world-class project.' Fujitec further acknowledged the tangible value that the project would bring to their business and their clients.
With 25 years of Experience and a dedication to excellence,O2k continues to raise the bar of complex project design and innovative execution.This Project is yet another example of their ability to turn obstacles into effective AV Solutions,enabiling them and Fujitech to take their success to new heights.
