    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.

    Chicago, IL - Platt Retail Institute announces the publication of its latest Working Paper, "A Determination of the Revenue Potential From Digital Screen Advertising at a Major League Baseball Stadium."

    Sponsored by Digital Signage Expo and Intel, the Working Paper advances a methodology for valuing advertising messages that could be displayed on digital screens at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs.

    It was concluded that "the total annual revenue potential from digital screens at Wrigley Field is almost $18 million," according to Steven Keith Platt, PRI Director and Research Fellow.


    The research encompasses two approaches. The first is a market-based approach that considers advertising revenue derived from digital screens installed at comparable Major League Baseball stadiums. The second is a value-based approach, which assigns a value to an in-park sign that is seen during the broadcast of a baseball game by a television audience.

    The 57-page Working Paper may be purchased for $250 from the PRI website. It includes an in-depth analysis of digital screen assets and advertising rates at 12 MLB ball parks in the top 10 Designated Marketing Areas.
