Buy your DS stuff on eBay … no really

March 24, 2008 by Dave Haynes

So I was doing my regular cruise of eBay watch items, ever on the hunt for rare, gilded Tammy Faye Bakker make-up trowels (bless her soul), when I stumbled across something I didn’t actually expect to see on the auction site’s hallowed pages – digital signage stuff.

Behold — a digital signage player from a Seattle company called Local Vision, which has made the interesting market positioning decision to sell their stuff on eBay.

I’m not sure what that tells potential customers, but it’s a big market and not everybody’s selling to the Fortune 500 and media conglomerates.

Root around and you can find actual products from other companies (you get the sense these are leftovers somebody back in a company’s IT ghetto is trying to peddle for beer money) and some items with only the most tenuous association to digital signage.
