Digital Signage Group Honors STRATACACHE with "Best of Class" Digital Signage Rollout for a National Retail Campaign
February 11, 2008 -STRATACACHE was recently announced a recipient of the 2008 DIGI Awards, which honor excellence and innovation in the digital signage industry. The Digital Signage Group named STRATACACHE winner in the Retail Application category, recognizing the best digital signage rollout for a National Campaign.
STRATACACHE's winning nomination highlighted its technology and its role in AT&T Mobility's digital signage initiatives. AT&T Mobility's implementation of a large digital signage network played a critical part of AT&T's re -branding initiatives. In 2007, AT&T Mobility launched its new Experience Stores that integrate digital signage and media to create the ultimate customer experience and a new way to shop for communications and entertainment services.
In addition, AT&T Mobility leveraged an extensive in -store digital signage network to promote the most highly -anticipated tech product of 2007, the Apple iPhone. iPhone kiosks were placed in every store as part of the product launch. The result -the largest single rollout of digital signage in retail of 2007.
STRATACACHE ActiVia for Media digital signage software is the enabling technology behind AT&T Mobility's digital media network. ActiVia is a highly -optimized, web -based solution providing centralized configuration management, monitoring, content scheduling, reliable distribution, playlist control, and reporting for digital signage networks.

Fourteen winners were honored in seven categories for the 2008 DIGI Awards including Retail, Corporate, Entertainment, Education, Healthcare, Public Venue and Judge's Choice. This was the fourth year for the award program, which recognizes outstanding resellers, dealers and integrators of digital signage.
"We are honored to receive this award for the highly successful AT&T digital signage rollout," says Steve Bannister, STRATACACHE VP of Engineering. "The size of the project, its geographical distribution, and the short time frame from inception to delivery all point to the superior design, implementation, maturity, and power of STRATACACHE's digital signage solution. ActiVia for Media couples the best digital signage management architecture with the best content distribution system available."
The judges of the 2008 DIGI Awards were five industry players including David Keene, Executive Editor of Digital Signage Magazine and DIGI Awards Chairman, Alan Brawn, principal of Brawn Consulting, Bill Collins, principal pf Decisions Point Media Insights, Ed Weil, Sourcebook Director -Content, Inc.
