Celebrating the VMAs with World’s Largest Flying Video Screen

Celebrating the 2016 VMAs with the World’s Largest Flying Video Screen

On August 24th, MTV and Branding By Air made history with a 250 foot wide video screen flying along the Hudson River in New York City. The event promoted the 2016 “MTV Video Music Awards” on August 28th, 2016.

A First in Aerial Marketing History

For this aerial stunt, Branding By Air in collaboration with Remarkable Media used live projection mapping technology to project video content on one of our Jumbo Banners, effectively creating a “deviceless” augmented reality on a scale never seen before. The flying cinema screen, announcing the MTV’s VMA 2016 performance by Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, was almost as wide as the Statue of Liberty is tall, and could be seen from miles away in the New York City area. The success of the flight ensured us a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as creators of the Largest Aerial Projection Screen in the history of advertising.
