Sunrise Ticker

Highline Capital

When TPG Architecture (NYC) designed a multi-function room for their Manhattan client’s financial firm they had envisioned a ticker-tape element that would appear as if folded into the corners and embedded into the surface of their island bar.  The desire for a product that was proven to have a long lifespan and would require little to no maintenance made the concept of using LED technology most appealing.  Trying to incorporate both functionality and finesse, TPG sought out Sunrise Ticker, a custom manufacturer of LED displays, to take their design from imagination to fabrication.

To ensure proper fit, production was closely coordinated with on-site contractors, Lehr Construction Corporation (NYC).  The 1.75” thick stainless steel enclosure was formed with virtually no seams to create a trendy pendant feature above the bar. Weighing approximately 5 lbs. per foot the L portion of the ticker is discreetly suspended from the ceiling by thinly threaded aircraft cable.

A custom-tailored software program allows the client to select which stocks they would like displayed in the feed as well as provide the option for dynamic programmable messages.  A three-tiered program, the Stock Builder application updates figures every 15 minutes, Image Key allows users to create bitmap images for the display, and Text Builder converts text into bitmap images.  A controller application matches stock quotes with the stock icons in the custom library and displays them accordingly. Controlled by an actual PC, the sign can be remotely accessed.
