Las Vegas, NV–(PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE)–February 27, 2008–Digital Signage Expo — I.C.G., a leader in wireless digital signage solutions, today announces the industry’s first end-to-end wireless digital signage solution. Sidelining the high cost of hard wires and cumbersome implementation of traditional digital signage, I.C.G. combines their innovative wireless MobileMedia System(TM) and ViFi Adapter(TM) (video over WiFi) to bring a new standard to the industry.
According to industry research, by the year 2009 there will be over one million digital signs in North America. Traditionally, these digital signs require labor- and time-intensive hard-wire connections that are difficult — if not impossible — to implement. These wired connections are needed for the various parts of the signage solution, such as network connectivity, media player and memory storage device, to function correctly. With the North American market on goal to install about 135 million locations over the next 10 years, I.C.G.’s wireless solution redefines the industry standard by eliminating the costs associated with hard-lines.
“For many years, advertising firms have suffered from the inability to wirelessly transmit high quality audio and video to their venues. Furthermore, these same firms have overpaid for hardware, satellite systems and installation services,” said Kevin Howard, CEO of I.C.G. “We have developed a next-generation solution that is the most cost-effective on the market. With our MobileMedia System(TM) combined with the ViFi Adapter(TM), we are proving how wireless technology can revolutionize sales and marketing efforts for businesses of all sizes.”
I.C.G.’s self-contained, turnkey MobileMedia System(TM) eliminates the need for two, three or more unique and disparate components by bundling a 3G/4G wireless network module, a WiFi router, an integrated media player and hard drive. The MobileMedia System(TM) also enables cached content to be streamed over wireless links. The second element in the solution is the ViFi Adapter(TM), which receives the audio and video content over WiFi from the MobileMedia System(TM) and connects via a variety of video outputs to virtually any type of display. Supporting all media and content formats, as well as any Windows or Linux-based content management software, I.C.G.’s solution allows digital information to be multicast to numerous displays simultaneously.
According to Dean Talley, CEO of PlasMedia Productions, “I.C.G.’s innovative solution is the industry’s first true end-to-end solution for wireless digital signage. With annual digital signage advertising spending estimated by analysts to be $14.6BN by 2011, I.C.G.’s plug-and-play,
end-to-end solution uniquely positions them to be at the forefront of expansion in this market.”
