Aap!Motion - Pedestrian Motion Panels

Aap!Motion is a new communication medium from Aap!Global that creates animated motion pictures through the use of static photo frames WITHOUT the need of complex electronics displays or moving parts. Sequential frames from any film clip can be overlain in a precise fragmented manner that, when seen through a specially designed optic lens, generates motion picture animation to the enjoyment of any pedestrian viewer.


Aap!Motion aims to combine the advantages and enjoyment of motion picture media with the size and impact of out-of-home placement. Aap!Motion can be installed in a variety of scenarios and will be enjoyed by people in motion whether on foot, escalators, moving sidewalks or even inside subway cars.

Possible examples include placement at Airports, Malls, Convention Centers, Cinemas, Casinos, Office Hallways, Arena/Stadiums - anywhere with large amounts of pedestrian traffic.

Aap!Motion pedestrian motion panels work similarly to Aap!Global's MetroVISTA subway tunnel advertising using the psychological phenomenon known as 'persistance of vision.' Aap!Motion boxes work at any pedestrian pace and will be effective in natural or illuminated light, with or without backlighting.

Aap!Motion consists of only 2 core elements - an optic lens made from strong acrylic plastic, designed to withstand outdoor environments and a printed picture, generated using an algorithm to separate and overlay the frames. Aap!Motion boxes can be made to any size, length or dimension.

Aap!Global can provide multiple options from fully finished pedestrian motion panels made to any specifications or merely the lens and printed picture from customer sourced media clip. The simplicity of the product lends itself to extreme flexibility in placement. Already installed traditional lightboxes can even be retrofitted with an Aap!Motion lens and print material to create a unique animated billboard.

What type of media content does Aap!Motion display?
Pedestrian units typically contain 2 to 5-second shots from existing TV commercials or client media - providing a unique opportunity to bring motion campaigns to the out-of-home marketplace.  Before they can be used, sequences must be converted for usage.  Aap!Global currently provides conversion services for clients.

What if viewers are moving from both directions?
The animation effect is reversible and will be enjoyed by either direction. For this reason animation sequences that work both backwards and forwards are recommended (Examples - A sequence of an individual drinking soda?

What type media content works best?
The animation effect can be created from any linear sequence of moving images, such as a shot originally recorded in film or video. A shot can come from an existing TV commercial or from stock footage. Live footage, computer animation, sequential stills, VR panoramas and object movies all work equally well.

A shot can originally be recorded at any standard frames-per-second rate.  Printed frame rate will be adjusted to match individual pedestrian speeds.

To ensure the quality of the experience, clients should provide the selected shot in the highest possible resolution.

Conversions are done each time a new shot is used for a motion panel campaign?

How long do conversions take?
