MediaTile Expands Connectivity Options

MediaTile Expands its Cellular Digital Signage Connectivity Options with Cellular-to-Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi, and Satellite IP Network Support

Scotts Valley, California, USA, December 20, 2007.   MediaTile today announced that it has expanded the network connectivity options for its popular plug-and-play Digital-Sign-in-a-Box™ signage solutions.  MediaTile Digital-Sign-in-a-Box solutions are immediately available with integrated support for a wide variety of networking options that give customers the maximum flexibility in signage placements.  Connectivity options now available include the original cellular-broadband support and direct-connect LAN support, and new options for cellular-broadband to Wi-Fi support, satellite-IP support, and standard Wi-Fi support.

“With these new connectivity options, our clients can now select the networking option that is best suited to their specific deployments – even if that means a mixed, or hybrid, network option across locations,” said Keith Kelsen, CEO and Chairman of The MediaTile Company.  “No matter what the choice, our customers will continue to benefit from highly integrated solutions that are the most robust and easiest to deploy and operate digital signage networks in the industry.”

The new Cellular-to-Wi-Fi option is expected to be a popular favorite among customers including convenience stores and gas stations that need to add an independent network connection easily at each location, and have multiple displays within a close proximity.  This option delivers an independent and secure network, with maximum placement flexibility and a lowest-cost of operation on a sign-by-sign basis.

The new support for site-based Wi-Fi will be beneficial to retailers and companies that already have an on-site network, ready access to network specialists who maintain the LAN, and the necessary bandwidth to support a promotional digital signage broadcast network.  Similarly, those customers with the resources to deploy and support a satellite-based IP network environment at each location can also take advantage of MediaTile’s newly introduced Wi-Fi support to connect multiple displays within a close proximity.
