Digital signage and narrowcast networks are rapidly rising to the forefront of today’s retail environment. They offer the promise of brand building, sales lift and corporate communications for companies seeking to deliver targeted, on-site messaging that influence purchasing decisions and improve the customer in-store experience.

"We are excited to have the NEOCAST Media Player XF recognized as best new product for the digital store by our peers at Globalshop 2005," said Ken Goldberg, CEO of Real Digital Media. "While it’s clear the long-term value proposition of digital signage and narrowcast networks resides in the scalable management and distribution of content offered by our NEOCAST Media Server software, the discipline of the digital signage field starts with architecture and hardware. Real Digital Media has made significant investments to ensure our media players are optimized for large scale digital signage networks. We are pleased these efforts were recognized by our peers and future clients at Globalshop.”
