Digital Signage Magazine, the technology and solutions magazine for digital signage and DOOH media, has announced the winners of its 2013 DIGI Awards, recognizing the best new products for the digital signage market. Awards were presented in three categories – Digital Signage Applications, Content for Digital Signage and New Products – with Audience for Android submitted by Capital Networks Limited, winning the Judges Choice award.
“The DIGI Awards recognize the resellers, integrators and service providers who have gone the extra mile to ensure success for their clients, thereby furthering the digital signage industry as a whole”, said David Keene, Executive Editor at NewBay Media.
Capital Networks Limited, a leading global provider of dynamic digital signage content creation and management software, announced the release of the latest addition to the Audience software platform — Audience for Android – in June 2012. Powered by the android operating system, the Audience for Android media player and software bundle provides a high performance, low cost alternative to traditional Windows OS based digital signage deployments.
“We’re very pleased with the recognition and feedback we’ve received regarding the new Audience for Android solution,” said Jim Vair, Vice President of Business Development at Capital Networks. “We were interested in releasing a product and establishing a ‘high-water mark’ of what customers should be able to expect from Android OS media players and ensured that our Android OS media player had the advanced features that help customers reach the full potential of their digital signage deployments. Due to the fact that the android solution provides a user friendly, low cost alternative, it’s less prohibitive to those looking into digital signage for the first time while offering current operators the opportunity to expand or increase the number of individual, unique screens in their network more cost effectively”.
Along with the ability to take advantage of the advanced Audience content management system, some of the key features found within Audience for Android include:
- Real time scheduling
- Support of single and multi-zone layouts
- Full screen H.264 video playback
- Support of live data feeds
- As Run Logs for content verification
- Command and Control features for emergency messaging
Capital Networks will be showcasing Audience digital signage solutions including Audience for Android in booth #619 at the Digital Signage Expo taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 27-28.
“As Chair of the Judges Committee for the DIGI Awards–administered by NewBay Media’s Digital Signage magazine– I want to congratulate all the winners of 2013 DIGI Awards”, said David Keene. “Each year, the task of choosing winners becomes a more daunting one, as the world’s top digital signage and DOOH providers continue to raise the bar for excellence”.
