Aerva to Drive State-of-the-Art LED Display at Fountain Square

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - Fifth Third Bank and the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) have joined forces to install a new state-of-the art LED video display driven by Aerva's AerWave digital signage technology. In 2006, 3CDC picked Aerva to drive its very first digital LED display after the $48 million renovation of Fountain Square -- and Aerva's technology continues to drive the newly installed LED display.

The new higher resolution video display stands 30.5' high by 42.5' wide and will offer unparalleled viewing angles and clearer, crisper image quality and is matched by Aerva's AerWave v4.8, which is used by the outdoor and place-based industry to manage high-profile, large-scale networks reliably and securely.

"Fifth Third Bank was a mere 13 years old when the Tyler Davidson Fountain was dedicated in 1871," states Mike Michael, President and CEO of Fifth Third Bank, Greater Cincinnati. "Today, Fountain Square has become the heart of our City, an epicenter of civic, social, and commercial life and the front yard of Fifth Third's headquarters. We're proud to be partnering with 3CDC and Aerva to present a modern, state-of-the-art LED screen and high-definition viewing experience for those who live, work and visit our home town."

John Fox, 3CDC's Vice President of Events & Programming, said, "Aerva's innovative technology platform with real-time interactivity from users in the Square, from social media, have been noteworthy in the industry. Now we believe the new display can fully take advantage of Aerva's capabilities and showcase a world-class public display to our community."

"We are pleased to extend our seven-year relationship with 3CDC into the next phase for Fountain Square and appreciate the validation of our technology by renewal of the software to drive the new display," remarked Sanjay Manandhar, CEO of Aerva Inc.
