DSA announces industry excellence award winners

April 18, 2011 by Dave Haynes

The Digital Screenmedia Association has announced its inaugural Industry Excellence Award winners, honors intended to recognize the best digital signage, mobile and self-service kiosk technology deployments across a variety of vertical market segments.

The list below lists the winners and, nicely, provides the backgrounders on what the projects were about and point to videos so you can actually see. I like the way Digital Signage Expo has been producing case studies as follow-ups to their awards, but this is a nice way of going at it, as well.

“We were extremely proud of the high caliber of entries for our first year in launching the awards,” commented David Drain, DSA executive director. “As you review the award-winning entries and watch the videos on our website, you will discover innovative and effective uses of screen media technology for the benefit of the customers and the organizations that deployed them.”

Full credit to David, as these awards were selected by a large committee comprised mostly of people who have actually built or managed networks (as opposed to people who write about it).

The winners of the three other categories, Industry Deployer of the Year, Network Operator of the Year and the Screenmedia Integration Award, will be announced next week at the opening keynote at Customer Engagement Technology World in San Francisco.
