"The DIGI Awards recognize the resellers, integrators and service providers who have gone the extra mile to ensure success for their clients, thereby furthering the digital signage industry as a whole. Additionally, we recognize the best New Products for the digital signage and DOOH market," said David Keene, Executive Editor of Digital Signage and Chair of the Judges Committee for the DIGI Awards. "We honed in on the entries that really stood out in showing us not just technology packages but how digital signage and DOOH best practices are playing out, in the field, with real-world solutions and products."

In 2011, FWi helped Washington State Ferries launch a digital signage network that featured a new visual paging system to communicate effectively with all passengers, including those with hearing disabilities. Washington State Ferries is the largest ferry system in the United States serving more than 22 million riders with its fleet of more than 20 auto-passenger ferries.

Receiving recognition from Digital Signage is a tribute to our company's commitment to continuous innovation and excellence in the marketplace."
