September 28, 2005




Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading provider of audio/video distribution systems for digital signage applications, revealed today that one of the largest digital transit information systems in North America uses Minicom's Video Display System to deliver content to commuters.


ONESTOP Media Group (OMG) is a full service digital signage network operator. Its digital media network for the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) delivers real time transit information, news, sports, weather, entertainment and advertising to double sided 40" LCD screens on subway platforms reaching over 1 million riders weekly. As the network owner and operator, OMG funded the installation, sells the advertising inventory, and shares its profits with the TTC.


"Integrators like ONESTOP come to us because our video -over -CAT5 distribution system scales well for large digital signage installations, and because we make it affordable for them to deliver high quality, high definition video over long distances," says Saul Mishaan, President Minicom US.


ONESTOP Network chose Minicom because of its superior price/performance ratio. "Our electronics design team evaluated several video -over -CAT5 solutions and Minicom's solution had the best quality image output and design for the rugged environment in which we are deploying our systems. Also compared to other similar products, Minicom has the best price to performance available," says Steph Gagnon, Director of Operations ONESTOP Media Group.


The decision to use Minicom products was advised by Eclipse DS of Canada, a distributor who specializes in turnkey solutions for Digital Signage.
