Capital Networks marching into military market

Capital Networks Ltd., a Markham, Ontario-based digital signage software provider, has entered into a strategic partnership with US-based World Media Net, a Government-Certified digital signage reseller with extensive experience in the military sector.

World Media Net will be providing Capital Networks' Audience™ digital signage platform to military bases across America, Canada and worldwide. Over 20 military institutions have already ordered the Audience™ solution and clients include Scott Air Force Base, Fort Eustis – home of the US Army Transportation Corps – Malmstrom Air Force Base and McConnell Medical Air Force Base and Medical Center.

The significant take-up of digital signage systems is in direct response to a new US Government Directive that stipulates better communication with all personnel on military bases following the shootings at Fort Hood. The Capital Networks software will provide them with a centralized platform for their digital signage and emergency notification system.

Together, Capital Networks and World Media Net will provide military clients with pre- and post-sales support and consultation, systems training and help in creating broadcast content.

"Until recently, military bases weren't using digital signage; they still relied on power point slides and these wouldn't be broadcast to all areas of the base – to housing quarters for example, where personnel live," James Vair, VP Business Development at CNL, commented. "Over the past year, we've seen a steady rise in the number of bases taking on digital signage systems and this has accelerated in the past couple of months after the Pentagon's new directive to improve communication and emergency notification. We are delighted to be working with World Media Net because it is a highly qualified firm focused on the military market. The partnership ensures that more bases benefit from our industry leading signage solution, as well as World Media Net's in depth understanding of what military institutions need to make the system work."
