Supply vs. demand gets a little more lopsided

Are we past 400 yet?
Remarkably, there are yet more companies entering the digital signage marketplace with their own easy-to-use, easy-on-the-wallet hardware and software solutions. There’s agreement there are at least 300 companies out there and some clues that it might actually be more like 400.
Whatever the case, supply far outstrips actual demand.
Another solution was announced today, and it may be absolutely brilliant, or more likely it’s pretty much like scores of others. The company behind it has a primary business of design and manufacturing keyboards and keypads and EPOS terminals, so I am thinking this will lean more toward conventional than groundbreaking.
BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ — Electrone Americas Ltd., Co., an international manufacturer and reseller of advanced IT equipment and solutions, is launching a new digital signage solution—Electrone Digital Signage—centered on a powerful online software platform that allows users to create and control a complete digital signage network via the internet.
