MediaTile Cellular Digital Signage Deployed at Rolls-Royce Corporation for Corporate Communications Broadcast Network

MediaTile Cellular-Based, All-in-One Displays With Web-Control Eliminates Costs and Complexities of Digital Signage Networks

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - MediaTile today announced the successful deployment of the first facility-wide cellular-based digital signage network for Rolls-Royce Corporation in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. The MediaTile all-in-one, cellular digital signage system was critical to the success of this corporate communications project as it required no IT resources to "network" two 1 million square-foot facilities and satellite offices where the signs were deployed. Using the MediaTile system, Rolls-Royce deployed the entire network in half the time and at half the cost as compared to traditional digital signage networks.

"The need to communicate with employees who may not have easy access to computers and email has always been a challenge at our site in Indianapolis," said John Gallo, Vice President, Business Operations for Rolls-Royce Corporation. "The beauty of the MediaTile system is that it allows us to supply real-time, useful information to our employees using state-of-the-art technology. There was a bit of a 'wow' factor when high-definition monitors were being installed throughout the site and that was followed by a general appreciation for the information being supplied. Rolls-Royce is excited by the possibilities this new system has introduced."

MediaTile displays are individually or collectively controlled using the MediaTile Broadcast Portal -- a hosted, web-based application that eliminates the need for customers to license, download or configure any software or servers to control their virtual broadcast network. The MediaTile Broadcast Portal is a secure, hosted application that is accessible from any standard web-browser.

"From the corporate communicator's chair, it's a natural fit," said Chuck Gose, Internal Communications Manager for Rolls-Royce Corporation. "Using MediaTile's technology not only saved us money by not needing additional IT infrastructure and installation, but it reduces the challenges of managing content thanks to the user-friendly broadcast portal."

The MediaTile system gives the corporate communications department a whole new way to communicate and connect with their employees. In addition to the lobby deployments, the 32" all-in-one MediaTile displays are deployed in all break rooms across five locations in Indianapolis. The broadcast network highlights company news, announcements, charitable events, recent awards and recognitions, policies and procedures, and visiting dignitaries. The network can also play video clips for training and educational series.

"Rolls-Royce is a perfect example of the type of company deploying next-generation digital signage networks that eliminate IT complexities," said Keith Kelsen, Chairman and CEO of The MediaTile Company. "With its unparalleled simplicity and sophistication, MediaTiles are enabling more companies to deploy television-like broadcast networks in far more places than ever before -- in banks, convenience stores, on gas-pumps, in retail stores, lobbies and facilities."
