Advertisers can purchase advertising time slots from AirMedia to reach thousands of airport passengers daily.

This number is expected spike significantly this year with the influx of travelers who will come for the 2008 Olympics. To date, 538 digital frames powered by DT Research’s WebDT Signage System have been installed in the airport. Throughout the coming months, AirMedia will install additional digital frames in other major airports powered by DT Research’s WebDT Signage System.
The WebDT Signage System provides a system comprising industrial-grade signage hardware, content management software and device management software. It can deliver dynamic advertising, information, news and training displayed in up to eight zones on each screen. Content scheduling and playback are controlled remotely by secure wireless media players.
