Harris Broadcast Communications has strengthened its presence in the digital out-of-home (DOOH) market in Russia with the appointment of Moscow-based DigiSky Group as its first DOOH reseller, who has achieved the Specialist Partner status in Harris’ Partner Program, in the country. The announcement comes on the heels of Harris’ exhibition and presentations at Integrated Systems Russia last week, its first Russian DOOH show.
DigiSky is a managed network provider that designs, implements and manages DOOH networks for customers in retail, education, entertainment, government and other vertical markets. The company specializes in the design and installation of complete DOOH solutions, and supports satellite and terrestrial-based delivery systems for its customers’ DOOH networks across Russia.
With numerous offices and a network of 50 resellers, DigiSky will significantly increase Harris’ local specialist sales and customer support services in this rapidly growing market. The company will distribute Harris Digital Out-Of-Home products and systems throughout the country.
“Harris has many years of experience in applying digital technologies to enhance business operations and communications for our customers worldwide,” said Denise MacDonell, director and general manager for digital signage, Harris Broadcast Communications. “The DigiSky relationship enables Harris to offer a strong blend of market-leading technology and recognized local sales and support to customers across Russia.”
Harris DOOH solutions — including the InfoCaster™ digital signage system and Punctuate™ business management software — enable the creation, scheduling and distribution of dynamic, targeted content. Users spanning many sectors including sports, hospitality, retail and live entertainment, can leverage this content to operate profitable, scalable video networks that enable better business.
“Harris is a world leader in broadcast technology and has used this experience to create products as advanced as InfoCaster, which in our opinion is one of the best digital signage products worldwide,” said Vladimir Kozlov, CEO at DigiSky Group. “We are confident that Harris DOOH products and systems will prove popular among our existing and new customers.
“With InfoCaster and other Harris technologies, we can provide our customers with high-quality solutions and services. We are happy to be the first reseller of Harris digital out-of-home solutions within the Russian territory,” concluded Kozlov.
