Capital Networks partners with World Media Net to drive digital signage solutions to the military market

Capital Networks Ltd (CNL), a provider of broadcasting and dynamic digital signage software, has announced a new strategic partnership with World Media Net – a government-certified digital signage reseller with experience in the military sector.

World Media Net will deliver CNL’s Audience digital signage platform into military bases across America, Canada and the world. More than 20 military institutions have already ordered the Audience solution, and clients include Scott Air Force Base, Fort Eustis – home of the U.S. 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 U.S. Government directive that stipulates better communication with all personnel on military bases following the shootings at Fort Hood. CNL’s Audience solution provides military bases – which are often spread out over wide geographic areas, even across different countries – with a centralized platform for their digital signage and emergency notification system. This ensures that any emergency messaging is communicated consistently, within seconds, to military and civilian personnel, wherever they are. 

“CNL’s Audience solution provides a perfect fit for military organizations. For a start, it’s very user-friendly so doesn’t require a team of IT people to run it; it’s an all-in-one system unlike competitor’s offerings that have several complicated pieces of equipment running simultaneously,” said Robert Wolgamotti, director at World Media Net, who has more than 10 years experience in the U.S. Navy, as well as almost 25 years expertise in broadcast media networks. “The other benefit of a single system is that it can be rolled-out to multiple sites quickly and easily, which is important because military bases are usually spread out over large geographic areas, sometimes across states, countries and continents.”

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, said. “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.”
