SHARJAH, U.A.E. — NEC Display Solutions has confirmed that the very first customer to receive its new 15 series commercial displays for digital signage will be Span Image Kenya.
Cyrille Nabutola, director of communications for Span Image Kenya, said that Span Image and NEC have been working closely since the launch in December 2007 and now has the fastest growing installed base of networks in the region.
“Our rapid expansion plans require us to be quick to deploy the latest technology at our disposal, and it is a sign of our growing importance that NEC is launching this new model series with Span Image first as their exclusive partner in Kenya,” he said.
NEC, with its head office in Munich and Middle East & Africa regional office in Dubai, has a market share of 23.6 percent in this product segment in terms of number of screens sold and leads the field by a clear margin in the last audited numbers late in 2007. The sales volumes of the 32- and 40-inch format models are particularly notable. NEC Display Solutions is in first place for 32-inch screens and second place in 40-inch screens in the manufacturer rankings with 23.9 and 17 percent market share respectively.
