iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ISD) is pleased to announce that it has completed its Smart Antenna platform development.
"We are very proud to announce another industry first -a single all weather antenna unit that can now broadcast to mobile cell phones, including the iPhone, by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth?? at the same time," said Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "This is a project that we've been working on for the past ten months in order to address prospective clients' requests for a product that would reach iPhones, iPads and other Wi-Fi capable devices."
The Smart Antenna appears as a free and open access point to device users. Because users simply connect to the Smart Antenna and view content within the web browser that is available on their phone, there is no requirement to download anything to the mobile device in order to view mobile web content, which can include coupons, product info, videos, games, etc. Content can be interactive and support user polling and loyalty membership management.
The Smart Antenna includes a CPU, thus eliminating the need for an external CPU. The Smart Antenna can be connected with existing digital signage or point of sale platforms running Windows, Linux or MAC operating systems. The Smart Antenna includes an aluminum waterproof enclosure and was designed for extended temperature ranges from -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. As the unit draws less than 5 watts and is powered over an Ethernet cable with a maximum length of 100 m (300 feet) it can easily be installed indoors or outdoors and run off a battery for weeks if required.
"Having the ability to communicate via Wi-Fi strengthens our product line immeasurably," added Mr. Romanov. "We can now offer clients a product line that ranges from simple Bluetooth?? messaging with basic reporting, to Bluetooth?? broadcasting and full reporting or broadcasting utilizing both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth?? with full reporting capabilities. The Smart Antenna will significantly increase our Anonymous Mobile Analytics ("AMA") and related customer data."
