The visual content displayed includes "Digital Hachiko" using the latest holographic display technology and "Shibuya Hachiko Monogatari" created to further popularize the story of Hachiko, the symbol of Shibuya.

The audio and video systems were specially selected for an immersive experience. Sony's original wave field synthesis technology that realizes three-dimensional sound was adopted for the audio system. 48 units of Barco's bezel-less video wall system, Barco UniSee, were installed making the front, right and left sides walls one big display (220 inches, width 4,854 mm x height 2,732 mm x 3 surfaces).

By combining the sound with three-dimensional presence and high-definition seamless video on three sides, it forms a digital art space where you can experience "immersive feeling" like never before.
