Agency 225 Selects Park Media Platform to Power Moto TV Network Digital Signage Pioneer Gary Halpin Leverages Blockbuster TV Success for New Motorcycle Industry In-Store Network

MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Park Media, a leading digital out-of-home enterprise software provider, today announced that it was chosen by point-of-sale broadcast leader Agency 225 to provide the software platform for Moto TV, a system of television networks delivering customized educational and entertainment content to motorcycle dealerships across the country. According to AdAge, digital out-of-home is currently the second-fastest growing digital media category behind on-line search, and Adcentricity recently projected the industry to hit $4.5 billion by 2013.

"The fast pace of the motorcycle world demands equally exciting, timely and customized content to grab riders' attention, and Park Media's enterprise software platform is uniquely able to deliver those elements over the Moto TV in-store network," said Brad Trotter, CEO of Park Media. "Given Gary Halpin's extensive experience in the out-of-home TV industry, we are honored that Agency 225 chose Park Media to provide the platform for Moto TV." Park Media has developed a versatile software solution for the delivery and management of sophisticated, multi-purpose content for enterprise digital signage networks. Unlike most off-the-shelf products, the Park Media platform uniquely provides unlimited flexibility and scalability, allowing Agency 225 to easily evolve and expand its Moto TV network to offer each dealership a uniquely engaging and localized customer experience.

An Advisory Board member of the Digital Signage Association, Gary Halpin built the Blockbuster TV in-store network while the digital signage industry was in its infancy. Under Halpin's guidance, this pioneering network grew to be one of the most successful in-store networks to date, and was featured in more than 7,500 Blockbuster locations worldwide. Now at Agency 225, Halpin continues to lead the industry with innovative digital out-of-home initiatives, focusing currently on Moto TV. Moto TV is a completely customizable network for motorcycle dealers, with content that is produced to not only entertain, but also to educate and empower the customers in order to initiate a sale. The network is already paying huge dividends for participating dealers and continues to roll out nationwide.

"We've seen many companies make the costly mistake of relying on a software platform that isn't designed to allow organic growth," said Gary Halpin, president of Agency 225. "Park Media was with us the entire way, offering one of the most flexible and scalable platforms currently available for enterprise-level in-store TV networks and providing us with invaluable resources when we needed it most. We did test other software, but found that the Park Media platform delivered everything that we needed and more. No one can launch and operate a network as big as Moto TV by themselves, so it was vital to find someone we could work with and trust, and Park Media was just the answer."
