PORTLAND, Ore. — Jaco Electronics Inc., a global distributor and integrator of electronic components and customized flat panel display (FPD) solutions, and provider of value-added logistics services, and DT Research, a leading developer of information appliances for vertical markets, today announced a partnership with Image Base International (IBI), a digital signage integrator and interactive media company.
This partnership has resulted in all three companies securing the digital signage contract for Portland’s International Airport — including state-of-the-art kiosks. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“We are very excited about partnering with two digital signage leaders on the Portland Airport contract, and look forward to forging a long and mutually beneficial relationship in one of the most dynamic areas of FPD deployment,” said Jaco’s chairman and CEO Joel Girsky. “The digital signage sector is an area of focus, growth and importance for Jaco as we are uniquely 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. We look forward to working with Jaco, Image Base International and Alliance Airport Advertising in offering dynamic communications to travelers within the Portland International Airport.”
