A well-known inner city attraction, the Edmonton City Centre (ECC) connects to two downtown hotels and more than 6 million square feet of offices in Alberta’s capitol. As of June 2011, the ECC walkway sees more than 4.5 million pedestrians per year with a weekly average of 87,200, according to Canadian Out-of-Home Measurement Bureau (COMB). This intense level of traffic sparked the conversation of installing video walls to increase revenue at local retailers, as well as entertain the passersby.
