  • Secured £212,000 of funding through the Innovate UK SMART grant
  • Patents pending across North America, Europe and APAC
  • Built several proof of concept systems generating 15 metre tall images
  • Secured key sales partnership with major media agency
Information Due to ongoing investors discussions, the Lightvert campaign has been extended by a further 7 days and will now be closing on the 1st April.

Idea

ECHO from Lightvert is a new, patented, DOOH advertising technology. With a single small reflective strip down the side of a building, we can create a fleeting but striking image in the eye of a viewer. From a relatively small footprint, ECHO can produce images up to 200m tall, making them some of the largest adverts in the world.

Major advertising and media houses like R/GA, M&C Saatchi, Kinetic Worldwide have shown interest, as have property companies like Cushman & Wakefield and Savills, who will help us identify sites to turn into new urban icons.

We’re Crowdfunding to produce the first commercial ECHO unit, so we can disrupt a market that we believe has seen little innovation in decades.
