MediaTile Launches Mediacast 4.0; Fourth Generation Digital Signage Delivery and Management System – Increases Viewer Impact through Relevance and Simplicity

Scotts Valley, California, January 23, 2009. MediaTile, a world leading provider of cellular digital signage solutions, today announced that it has released Mediacast 4.0, its fourth generation, SaaS-based digital signage content delivery and management system. The new system was made immediately available to all of MediaTile’s 200 active worldwide networks today at 00:00 GMT. Mediacast 4.0 dramatically simplifies the process of communicating across a digital signage network with greater relevance, impact and influence. A new visual user interface and drag-and-drop capabilities make it much easier to create relevant playlists comprised of multiple zones and dynamic feeds. In addition, the new system is now available for OEM port-ins on industry standard all-in-one displays, and media players that support cellular, Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity options.

"In the same way that MediaTile’s Cellular Digital Signage has already revolutionized network deployments by improving ROI for our customers, our new Mediacast System will now help improve ROM [Return on Message™] by significantly reducing the time, effort and training necessary to deliver relevant content programming across a broadcast network," said Simon Wilson, CEO of The MediaTile Company. "Now in our 4th generation of a pure SaaS-based solution, we continue to lead the digital signage new media revolution by enabling more and more businesses to deploy and operate their own virtual broadcast network."

Mediacast 4.0 provides complete control over the media and messages delivered across a digital signage network. Users can deliver relevant content to the right place, at the right time, quickly, easily and securely. New features in the Mediacast System include:

  • A highly intuitive and visual interface with integrated video tutorials
  • Drag-and-drop multi-zone playlist creation with support for dynamic media
  • User definable links to external data sources and an extensible architecture
  • Online playlist previewing specific to each display
  • Visual and intelligent playlist scheduling

The system is now also available as an independent offering to OEMs, solution providers, and for private branding and labeling solutions. More information is available on the Mediacast System at www.mediatile.com/mediacast.

"With the Mediacast System, we are meeting customer demands for a powerful, yet easy to use, content delivery and management system that can significantly improve engagement through content relevance," said Mike Foster, SVP of Marketing for The MediaTile Company. "And, by making this powerful 'engine' available to other solution providers, we have essentially uncorked the ‘genie’ that has made MediaTile’s all-in-one, Digital Sign in a Box system a popular, award-winning platform."

The MediaCast 4.0 System is available as a new interface option to all existing users at no additional fee, demonstrating MediaTile’s “future-proofing” capabilities by providing continuous feature enhancements though its SaaS solution.
