The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America’s independent
    entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.


    Bell continues to expand into new markets such as Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville and Nashville. The company offers local businesses a variety of advertising solutions from outdoor and indoor advertising to social media management. Bell is one of only two companies based in Montgomery, Alabama to have made the list and one of 56 in the state of Alabama.


    “It’s an honor for Bell Media to be recognized as one of Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing Private Companies,” said Scott Bell, founder and CEO of the company. “Our advertising offerings have been extremely well received, but it’s the talent and determination of our team that drives our growth. We couldn’t be more proud of the team and offerings we have in place and look forward to continued
    expansion in the Southeast and beyond.”


    The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’ s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years.

President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

    Clinton, NJ - Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the introduction of BC-HDKat6a cable, its newest category cable designed for use in the Pro AV industry. Building on the success of Kramer’s extremely popular, high-performance BC-DGKat623 category cable, the new BC-HDKat6a cable has been built to the same exacting standards and offers virtually identical performance in tests with 4K signals.

    Kramer’s BC-DGKat623 cable works flawlessly with Kramer’s unique DGKat twisted pair technology. Similarly, the new BC-HDKat6a cable has been engineered to deliver the same level of high performance when used with HDBaseT signals. HDBaseT has become a very popular method for the long distance transmission of today’s digital AV signals, and now there is a competitively priced cable from Kramer designed specifically for this use.

    Kramer Electronics category cable recently outperformed competitive cables from several high-profile industry manufacturers in the Redband Radio and AVNation independent InfoComm 2014 Cable Challenge. In testing 4K signals sent via HDBaseT transmitters and receivers, Kramer’s cable achieved the best performance registering measurements of 0.362, 0.482 and 0.362 errors per billion in three successive tests utilizing a Quantum Data 980 test generator. Utilizing the same set up, competitor’s cables measured from 0.845 to 14.468 errors per billion. Additionally, the BC-HDKat6a was tested and accredited in an Alliance Recognized Testing facility, met the requirements set by HDBaseT Alliance and therefore work perfectly with HDBaseT devices.

    With the introduction of the BC-HDKat6a cable, Kramer now offers the industry two outstanding cables for carrying digital video including HDBaseT signals, both with incredible performance. Kramer cables ensure reliable installations that benefit both dealer/integrators and end-users.

    Pro AV professionals can rely on Kramer cables for the very best performance in any Pro AV installation.

    Kramer’s BC-HDKat6a cable is available in bulk spools of 1000ft (305m). Complete product information for all of Kramer’s products can be found at www.kramerus.com.

    BroadSign digital signage software and BroadSign Xpress used in select Saudi Arabia banking branches.


    Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, August 12, 2014. 4C Solutions Ltd has selected BroadSign International, LLC’s cloud-based digital signage software to power its network coverage of banks in Saudi Arabia.


    4C’s presence in Riyad Bank consists of over 200 screens across 150 branches. Completion of the initial deployment is expected for the end of Q3 2014, with hopes to expand the network from half to all of the bank’s locations in 2015. 4C also uses BroadSign’s platform for its 50 Saudi Hollandi Bank branches.


    “Banks are extremely sensitive to security and only BroadSign’s trusted platform and excellent support allowed for integration with Riyad Bank’s LAN,” said Karim Assad, Chief of Engagement and Motivation at 4C. “This connection, along with BroadSign’s cloud-based nature, allows for rapid deployment and contributes to 4C’s competitive advantage.”


    A market leader in the banking venue, 4C enhances a customer’s journey within the bank by using advertising-free content inclusive of bank messaging, news and entertainment feeds. Loops of 12 minutes in length are compliant with cultural norms by running news from the nation’s number one broadcaster, Al Arabiya, and National Geographic.


    “BroadSign’s flexible and automatic approach to campaigns allows for content scheduling based on screen location inside of the bank,” added Assad. “This is appreciated by bank management, especially given that dedicated content can be scheduled to Saudi Arabia’s separate branches for men and women.”


    4C screens are located in the main banking space and high-net-worth areas. Riyad Bank displays are a mix of existing and new LCD screens, while Saudi Hollandi Bank features 62” screens in self-standing kiosks with BroadSign Xpress smart players inside. 4C uses the Android-based BroadSign Xpress for almost all of its media player requirements, due to its attractive price, small size and solid performance.


    “In the past, banks have tended to avoid cloud-based software offerings due to strict regulations regarding network security, but the tide is starting to turn,” said Skip Beloff, Vice President of Sales at BroadSign. “4C is a predominant and respected player in the banking sector and this standardization on both the BroadSign platform and BroadSign Xpress is a strong testament to the security of our service and its many user benefits.”


    If you are interested in joining over 200 networks already running on BroadSign digital signage software, sign up now for a 60 day free trial of the platform. Quotes for BroadSign Xpress smart players can be requested here.

    1,000 screens in 500 buses across Sao Paulo inform and entertain millions of mass transit users.


    Sao Paulo, Brazil. July 22, 2014. - Prominent Brazilian digital signage transit network, Nemooh Servicos de Mídia LTDA, has deployed its first 1,000 screens in 500 buses with BroadSign International, LLC’s digital signage software platform. Expansion plans involve attaining 4,000 screens in 2,000 buses by the end of 2015.


    The vandal-proof, 22” LED displays in Nemooh Mídia buses are viewed by 11.3 million people in Sao Paulo per month, playing real-time news, entertainment, sports and health tips spaced between the likes of bank, telecom and government ads. A typical content loop is 60 minutes of 15 second slots- a format suited to commuters who watch the screens on lengthy daily rides.


    “Having worked in digital media for over 15 years, I can say that Nemooh Mídia brings the most advanced technology to Sao Paulo’s buses,” said Luciano Ramo, Executive Director at Nemooh Mídia.


    He continued, “operating on ad-based revenue, BroadSign allows us to present advertisers with proof of play reports instead of memory card solutions, and provides our network with proven strength, reliability and stability. Nemooh Mídia aspires to be the biggest digital signage network in Brazilian buses and views BroadSign as a safe bet given its many other enterprise-level customers.”


    “This deployment is the result of a partnership that began in 2007 upon realizing that BroadSign and Nemooh Mídia shared a vision of digital out-of-home’s potential in Brazil,” said Skip Beloff, Vice President of Sales at BroadSign. “Years later, our shared success is recognized by Nemooh Mídia’s 23% and growing market share, along with a strong presence of BroadSign customers across the country.”


    A testament to its support of and integration in Brazil’s digital signage industry, BroadSign is the Conference Sponsor of the first Brasil Signage Expo, held on September 18 and 19. Attendees are invited to book a meeting with a BroadSign representative to discuss how BroadSign’s digital signage software can meet the needs of their networks.
