Network to Span 1000 Premium Gym Locations Nationwide Delivering Theatrical Movie Previews, Music Videos as well as Fitness, Sports, Entertainment and Leisure Advertisements

Today, at the Digital Retailing Expo held at the Navy Pier Exhibition Center in Chicago, Real Digital Media (RDM), a leading provider of next generation digital signage technology products for establishing point of purchase marketing, promotions and corporate communication networks, and Magic Media Networks (OTC:BB MGCN), a network provider of digital signage and private television networks at high traffic Out Of Home (OOH) destinations, announced the official “National launch of Gym TV” destination television.

Using RDM’s family of NEOCAST digital signage products, Magic Media Networks previously launched the GYM TV destination television across 40 premium Gold’s Gyms and Worlds Gyms throughout Florida. Magic Media Networks is now funding the Health & Fitness digital signage network’s expansion across the United States. The network intends to encompass a minimum of 1000 premium Health & Fitness locations combined with a minimum of 14 National Advertisers. Gym TV will air First Run Hollywood Movie Previews, Music Videos, Fitness, Sports Entertainment and Leisure Advertisements.

“We are extremely excited about the national rollout of Gym TV,” stated Ken Goldberg, CEO of Real Digital Media. “The vision behind this network clearly demonstrates the flexibility, scalability and precision of our NEOCAST product line to help partners like Magic Media Networks drive the value of advertiser-supported narrowcast networks to their customers.”

The digital signage industry is growing at a rapid rate as the promise of delivering targeted advertising, promotions and corporate communication messages continues to hit the mark with retail, hospitality and food service industries.

“This is a very hot industry,” said Neal Weinstock of Weinstock Media Analysis (WMA), a consulting practice that produces syndicated and private market studies and analyses, specializing in the television and professional video industries. “Our firm has measured the opportunity in ad-supported digital signage at over 140 percent growth in 2004, and we think it can continue to grow strongly over the next few years. Companies like Real Digital Media are helping to continue this trend.”

Customers like Magic Media Networks are also helping to push digital signage network growth.

"Our vision is to own and operate premium digital signage and private television networks in high traffic leisure destinations,” said Gordon Scott Venters, President/CEO. “In order to achieve this, we needed to make not only a capital investment, but a strategic investment in a credible partner. Real Digital Media’s NEOCAST products won on both accounts. Not only are their products cost-effective, but their extreme reliability and scalability ensures our networks are up and running, serving both our advertisers and target audience."

“Gym TV delivers added value to our clientele because the network’s vision aligns with the active lifestyle promoted by Gold’s Gym,” said Drew Chesler, President of Gold’s Gym South Beach, located in Miami, Florida. “Gold’s members run over 550,000 miles a day, bike 235,000 miles a day, and lift 3.6 billion pounds a day. They are on the move, and Gym TV provides them with information on how to enhance their fitness, as well as provide them with entertainment programming during a workout.”

Magic Media Networks will be showcasing Gym TV in Real Digital Media’s booth at Digital Retailing Expo 2005 (#805).
