Minicom Digital Signage and JVP Present at the 5th Annual Digital Signage Investor Conference in New York City (October 5th & 6th 2010)
Minicom Digital Signage (MDS), a leading manufacturer of advanced multimedia platforms and media distribution solutions for the Digital Signage industry, will present at the 5th Annual Digital Signage Investor Conference in New York City. For the first time, Ronni Guggenheim, CEO of MDS, will present alongside leading Israeli digital signage authority and investor Gadi Tirosh, General Partner of Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP). This conference for digital signage investment brings together both company and investor to discuss raising capital, business opportunities and deal-making.
Established nearly one year ago with a seed investment by JVP Venture Capital, Minicom Digital Signage technology is today deployed on over 400,000 screens worldwide in out-of-home environments including retail central, educational facilities, health care centers and other critical nodes of activity. The system developed by MDS enables broadcasting from a single media player or video server to one or more digital displays over secure cables. With easy to install cabling and a management radius of over 600 meters (nearly 2,000 feet), the MDS solution simplifies the management of information on screens creating a user-friendly system for customers.
Ronni Guggenheim, Minicom Digital Signage CEO, speaking on the second day of the conference on the CEO/Founders Panel, says: “MDS has successfully closed a round of funding, during a period of scarce resources and economic turmoil. MDS has relentlessly built its leadership position and is now a market leader in providing infrastructure solutions to the digital signage market, allowing for significant Capex and Opex savings to the DooH network operators. Even in difficult economic times, JVP Venture Capital has recognized the potential in MDS to becoming an industry leader, thus enabling MDS to explore inorganic growth options and to establish itself as a full scale infrastructure platform to digital signage networks.”
“JVP invests in opportunities that bring together related but disparate systems and digital signage, which sits at the nexus of media and technology, is a prime example,” said JVP General Partner Gadi Tirosh speaking on the Investors Panel on October 6th. “With innovative and user-friendly technology MDS is poised to build on its market-leading position and lead the emerging digital signage industry. Now more than ever before, we need to invest in entrepreneurs that will transform the digital signage industry for years to come.”
