Features and Enhancements Highlights

  • Geotargeting
    Take advantage of location and relevancy by automatically playing ads on a taxi screen or bus display as it passes points of interest. Catch your audience’s attention and make brands top of mind with advertising generated at the perfect moment.

    Our geotargeting feature enables users to target moving screens to a geographical area. When screens move into the targeted area, geo-conditional content is triggered.
