Amscreen’s technology is Sharper than ever – new exclusive partnership will bring Outdoor Digital Signage to the masses

Bolton, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 8 April 2014

The exclusive agreement will enable the creation of the most technically advanced large screen digital display solution. Using Amscreen’s patented networking and content delivery systems, the plug and play screens will now make a fully connected and scalable network an affordable reality for both existing and potential outdoor players.

Following Amscreen’s success in deploying the largest, most innovative and flexible network of indoor digital screen systems, the all-new sunlight readable Outdoor screens will combine all of these benefits to deliver the largest and most scalable digital 6 sheet screen product in the market. The screen sizes and integrated technology make it an ideal candidate for outdoor use within bus shelters and roadside as well as window and indoor mall installs. The new format screens will all have the option of utilising Amscreen’s market-defining OptimEyes audience measurement technology, providing advertisers and estate owners with complete transparency and accountability on campaigns as well as audience traffic flows and profiles.

Simon Sugar, Amscreen CEO, commented, “The launch of our digital six sheet offering is a key milestone in the industry. Until now, no product has been designed specifically for the large scale needs of existing and potential users of digital signage. We’re pleased to have collaborated with Sharp to bring an outstanding product to market at an affordable price. We are still in the prototype stage, but initial feedback from customers in our target sectors has been fantastic and look forward to rolling out the screens towards the end of the year.”

David Woodward, Sharp Devices Europe President, added, “We’re pleased to announce this exclusive partnership with Amscreen that has enabled us to deliver a great solution to the Outdoor space. With the screens set to roll out later this year, we are certain that this technical partnership and our global sales and marketing collaboration will benefit customers in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.”
