ATLANTA, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- LBi Atlanta announced today the launch of a new microsite for the 100th anniversary of Denon, one of the world's premier manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment components. The all-Flash site, aimed at audiences across Asia, Europe and the United States, is translated into 14 languages to celebrate Denon's legacy.

LBi's creative approach is concentrated around an interactive three-dimensional timeline that takes users on a journey through the past 100 years, stopping at each of Denon's major achievements. Weaving in memorable societal events to anchor the legacy in a cultural context, each Denon innovation is captured in a postcard-like image, which can be expanded to see details about the achievement.

"Our challenge was to bring Denon's anniversary celebration online in a way that drove the digital engagement of audio enthusiasts and built momentum for the release of the anniversary product collection," said Lisa Harper, Managing Director, LBi Atlanta. "We succeeded by translating Denon's 'Legacy of Firsts' celebratory 100th anniversary concept into an engaging, user-friendly, interactive microsite."

The microsite also features a Countdown Clock, which builds anticipation leading up to Denon's anniversary, Oct. 1, 2010. A section called Minds Behind the Brand houses Denon leader biographies, while In Praise of Denon showcases the brand's legacy of recognition, and Products of Tomorrow provides a preview of the special edition anniversary collection, to be unveiled in August.

"LBi really brought our 100th anniversary celebration to life through this site," said Vaishali Benner, Director of Strategic Marketing at D&M Holdings, the parent company of Denon. "We're extremely pleased with this execution and appreciate LBi's speed and dedication in facilitating this endeavor."
