Jaco and DT Research Partner on Digital Signage
Jaco Electronics and DT Research announced they will collaborate with digital signage integrator and interactive media company Image Base International.
Jaco Electronics, a distributor and integrator of electronics and customized flat-panel displays, and DT Research, a developer of information appliances for vertical markets, announced they will collaborate with digital signage integrator and interactive media company Image Base International (IBI) to design and install digital signage and kiosks for the Portland International Airport in Oregon.
"We are very excited about partnering with two digital signage leaders on the Portland Airport contract," said Jaco Chairman and CEO Joel Girsky, in a joint statement. "The digital signage sector is an area of focus, growth, and importance for Jaco as we are positioned in the industry as a supplier, designer, and integrator."
"A digital signage system significantly enhances the airport experience," said Dr. Daw Tsai, president of DT Research. "Digital signs can provide airport travelers with accurate, up-to-the-minute flight, gate, and baggage-claim information. Travelers can watch dynamic advertising while waiting for the next flight. Interactive kiosks provide rapid access to specific content for travelers in a hurry."
IBI president and co-founder Catherine Oaks added, "When Alliance Airport Advertising approached us about creating large flat-panel screens for their main concourse and interactive, informational kiosks to enhance the baggage claim area, we were pleased to have the opportunity to bring in Jaco to manage the sales procurement and logistics process and DT Research for their hardware and software implementation expertise. Going forward, we will continue to proactively seek similar and related projects we can all collaborate on, and have already submitted several proposals."
