Inks Multiple Deals for High-End Digital Signage Products
Wegener Corporation, a leading provider of equipment for digital signage, television, audio, and data distribution networks worldwide, announced the receipt of multiple orders for its digital signage products from an undisclosed international customer. Approximately $233,000 of the equipment purchased in these orders was shipped prior to the end of the fourth quarter and the balance is expected to ship in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
The orders were received in the final weeks of August for Wegener products including iPump 562 and 6400 Media Players. The products will be operated in satellite-based Compel network controlled environments utilizing both DVB and IP broadcast technologies. These networks are capable of supporting live broadcast and file-based signage applications. The equipment will be used to expand existing networks as well as support new deployments of digital signage in retail and transportation networks.
“The efficiency of satellite technology, whether direct broadcast or IP multicast, has no equal when distributing media to large signage networks. Couple this with Wegener’s ability to manage these large networks and you have a powerful tool for direct, focused communication,” stated Troy Woodbury, President and CEO of Wegener Corporation. “We are very enthusiastic about our international opportunities. Our partners are expanding their businesses using Wegener products and we believe we will see a continuous acceleration of growth outside the US.”
