Passport selected as a key technology for Ogilvy Digital Labs
ComQi, the leading digital in-venue media management company today announced that its Passport platform had won the award for Best New Product for Digital Signage at the 2013 Digi Awards. The Passport application allows users to use their smartphone to control content on a digital signage screen to play games, select videos on demand, get money-off coupons and link to their Facebook and Twitter feeds. The product has been received very well by the market and has been deployed in cinemas and fast food outlets in the US and Israel. The Digi awards is sponsored by New Bay Media and is the only industry award program that recognizes the outstanding integrators, content providers and product manufactures focusing on digital signage.
Passport is the winner of the “Best New Content Management Software, Web-based” category. It was selected as the winner because the Passport uniquely uses a URL to connect any piece of content on a screen with a smartphone, versus download a mobile application. The platform then provides a wide variety of experiences including product information, coupons, loyalty programs and interactive gaming such as trivia, group buying and media selection.
