Their vocalizing a need for a high quality directional audio solution that according to them didn't exist in the digital signage market was a big factor in our decision. So far the response has been overwhelming and manufacturing is struggling to keep up with demand.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 25, 2008
Dakota Audio, the global leader in full range directional audio devices, announced today its official entry into the digital signage marketplace with its plans to exhibit at the Digital Signage Expo East in Philadelphia, PA next month.
According to Dakota Audio's founder and CEO, Lynn Mader, "It's the natural evolution for the marketing of our directional audio arrays. If you get right down to it, we have been producing directional audio for flat panel displays like those used in digital signage since Dakota Audio's inception over ten years ago."
Prior to digital signage's retail advertising application for flat panel displays, the most common need for controlling sound electronically was in the museum market. Museums were very quick to appreciate that greater control of audio between exhibits would increase the museum's ability to have more exhibits on display in close proximity to each other. Over the past ten years Dakota Audio has been able to realize over three quarters of the museum industry as their clients.
"Our decision to formally enter the digital signage market was brought about by the requests from our customers," said Mader, who went on to say, "Their vocalizing a need for a high quality directional audio solution that according to them didn't exist in the digital signage market was a big factor in our decision. So far the response has been overwhelming and manufacturing is struggling to keep up with demand."
Next month Dakota Audio is set to release a new directional audio mini line array that is the result of specific customer feedback. This all new directional speaker will maintain the hallmark of all Dakota Audio products with a very small form factor and great sound.
