Ryarc, a digital signage software provider, has announced that Ultimate Media has selected CampaignManager as the company’s digital signage software platform. Ultimate Media launches into 2009 expecting to double its current network size in the next 12 months. At present, Ultimate operates approximately 300 screens in 250 venues in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
Ultimate Media Group operates digital signage networks in 2 key environments- health club venues and bar/night clubs. Screens are all portrait orientation and feature 50-percent third-party advertising and 50-percent venue promotional content. Programming utilises a simple 60 second cycle with 3 x 10 second advertising spots alternating with 3 x 10 second venue promotional spots.
Peter Cope, director of Ultimate Media Group, stated “After evaluating other major digital signage software solutions, Ultimate Media selected Ryarc based on its track record of success with other large out of home media companies; commitment to continual development and refinement and excellent service and training support.”
Ryarc is working closely with Ultimate Media to grow the network and convert their traditional poster network to digital. Ultimate currently has nearly 10,000 static posters in the market and over the next 10 years, the company envisages that around half of these will become digital advertising sites. The balance of these locations will be phased out due to the increased inventory delivered by a digital network.
Ben Mooney, sales and marketing manager of Ryarc, stated, “Ryarc is pleased Ultimate Media selected CampaignManager to power their digital out of home network. CampaignManager provides them a very scalable and reliable platform and we look forward to working with Ultimate and supporting them as they expand their network.”
