CBS Outdoor Debuts First Ever High-Definition Video “Platform Posters” in New York’s Times Square

3 min read

CBS Outdoor has unveiled the world’s first-ever high-definition video platform poster, the Video Two-Sheet, as part of HBO’s True Blood® campaign. This state-of-the-art New York transit advertising campaign is located at Times Square subway station, one of the world’s most iconic, heavily trafficked subway stations.

CBS Outdoor is launching the first-of-its-kind campaign on behalf of HBO, which is promoting the third season of True Blood, premiering on HBO, June 13 at 9 p.m. As part of the promotion, HBO will be showing commuters a preview of the new season of True Blood using an ultra-thin 10-inch LCD screen, with audio, embedded into traditional two-sheet posters as part of HBO’s Times Square Subway Domination.

The unique design of the self powered Video 2-Sheet brings traditional subway posters to a new level of engagement. CBS Outdoor worked with its partners Engagement Media and Standout Graphics to create this new digital media format.

“CBS Outdoor is very excited to showcase our latest digital media format with HBO,” said David Lane, vice president, digital media, CBS Outdoor. “The combination of digital media and print gives us the opportunity to create unique, personal and engaging experiences for the consumer on behalf of our clients. We continue to innovate and bring new first-of-its-kind digital media formats to market which will enhance our client’s campaigns.”
