The winners of the 2018 DIGI Awards have been announced by NewBay Media’s Digital Signage magazine. The DIGI Awards recognize the integrators and solution providers who have gone the extra mile to ensure success for their customers. Additionally, the best New Products for the digital signage and DOOH (Digital Out of Home) markets are honored.

The DIGI Award Winners are listed below. In February, NewBay will be highlighting select winners in detail, in a DIGI Awards special section of the Digital Signage Best Practices Guide.

“As Chair of the Judges Committee for the DIGI Awards I congratulate all the winners,” said NewBay Media executive editor David Keene. “The entry process through the fall of 2017 saw another great crop of applications and innovative products. While digital signage is now so pervasive that it’s often taken for granted– or part of the AV world in general– dedicated digital signage and public display and networking technology as well as content platforms are evolving with new features, and designers, integrators and end users are pushing the boundaries of place-based and interactive systems. From fine-pitch LED in unusual entertainment applications to merchandising at the highest levels to employee-facing systems for corporations, the DIGI Awards are still the best look at how digital signage and DOOH best practices are defining a new digital landscape. ”
