CMPi and ActiveLight Launch Digital Signage PublicationsSuccessful partnership expands to series of quarterly magazines (January 28, 2005)
CMP Information, Inc. has announced its partnership with ActiveLight, Inc. on the publication of a series of quarterly magazines that highlight the business trends and technological innovations of digital signage display. The first of the publications arrives February 2005 in anticipation of the Digital Signage Showcase LIVE event at the 2005 NSCA Systems Integration Expo.
The release comes on the heels of the most recent edition of the Dynamic Digital Signage Resource Directory, which for three years has marked a thriving collaboration between CMP Information, Inc. and ActiveLight. The directory has become a vital tool for retailers, dealers, and consumers who use electronic signage in retail and public spaces.
The Digital Signage Quarterly publications will be timed for distribution as follows:
? February 2005: Digital Signage ShowCase LIVE. Pre-NSCA show/ Digital Signage ShowCase LIVE issue; editorial coverage of the DIGI Awards (Digital Signage Innovator Awards) entries will be included. Bonus distribution at NSCA.
? May 2005: DIGI Awards special issue. Highlighting the winners of the first annual DIGI Awards, with recognition of achievements in three categories: retail, transportation, and corporate installations. Bonus distribution at InfoComm, and at the Digital Retailing Expo in Chicago.
? October 2005: Fourth Annual ActiveLight Dynamic Digital Signage Resource Directory. The Annual Resource Directory returns for another successful year to help match buyers and sellers of digital signage products and services.
? December 2005: DIGI Awards special issue/call for entries. Includes detailed information on the 2006 DIGI Awards.
?Weve seen unprecedented interest in the Dynamic Digital Signage Resource Directory, and have been very pleased with our relationship with ActiveLight, says Adam Goldstein, Group Publishing Director for CMP Information, Inc. ?There has been a lack of coverage of the burgeoning digital signage market. The Digital Signage Quarterly publications will provide much-needed information to end users as well as the AV channel on buying and using Digital Signage equipment.
The CMPi/ActiveLight Digital Signage Quarterly will cover the most pressing issues facing those involved in digital signage, including display, content creation, installation, networking products, and current market trends.
?Theres clearly a need today for a publication devoted to addressing the current issues in the rapidly growing digital signage industry, said Brad Gleeson, president and CEO of ActiveLight, Inc. ?Our aim is to provide the periodical that unites the industry and inspires excellence.
