then, they join a queue where they are entertained
and informed by digital signage.
Visitors can use custom 3D facial scanners to
capture their faces; later on, they're used in
a highly interactive experience.
Next is the Hall of Light, a choreographed,
synchronized, dramatic audio
and light installation in a tunnel that leads
to the elevators. The Hall of Light captivates
visitors, setting the tone for the rest of the
experience. Inside the elevator, special
lighting effects and mirrors energize visitors
as they climb to the top.
After exiting the elevators on the 91st
floor, visitors reach the Transcendence
space. This is an epic, story-driven,
multi-sensory immersive experience that
Kenzo Digital designed. It's filled with infinity
mirrors from floor to ceiling. Carefully placed
directional audio sets the tone for what
visitors are about to experience. At night,
architectural columns come to life with an
amazing light show that is achieved with
integrated lighting and two-way mirrors.
Transcendence is one of the largest
infinity rooms in the world. The sound
design contributes to the experience of the
space. It's a 3D soundscape and, because
of that, every part of the room is a different
experience. From there, visitors move to an
interactive space where they can connect

to hundreds of reflective orbs hovering
around them.
On the 92nd floor, visitors make their way
to Unity. There, they can scan their wristbands
and see the image of their face (which
they scanned earlier) visualized in the clouds
on a 50-foot-long, floor-to-ceiling videowall
that creates a one-of-a-kind experience
during which visitors feel they are one with
the clouds. There's simply nothing like it.
Detailed Planning, Close Coordination
Putting together a massive project like Summit
One Vanderbilt, as well as delivering
it on time, necessitated detailed planning
and coordination. The project had to be
completed within a small window leading
up to opening day on October 21, 2021.
For Electrosonic's scope, that meant one
year. The company had to collaborate
with more than 30 trades, manage an
often-changing schedule and continue to
support the on-the-fly designing that was
happening. Another consideration, of
course, was the COVID-19 pandemic and its
associated dilemmas.
Logistics were a major challenge. Observation
decks like Summit One Vanderbilt sit
more than 90 floors up on top of skyscrapers,
and they involve unique spaces like elevators.
It's not as simple as installing interactive

screens and other audiovisual equipment. It
took in-depth planning and maneuvering just
to get the logistics right.
Electrosonic was responsible for engineering,
programming, building, installing,
commissioning and testing all the technology
systems at Summit One Vanderbilt,
including the audio systems, LED displays,
audiovisual and lighting control systems,
and experiential technologies that run the
show. When the system integration phase
was complete, the team handed over the
site to Electrosonic's onsite support team.
