Winners were honored in 12 distinct categories with Audience for Android submitted by Capital Networks Limited, winning Product of the Year in the Media Player category.

The Signage Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the most innovative products of the year in the digital signage field. In its inaugural year, the award program is honoring the outstanding product development achievements of digital signage manufacturers whose products are considered exceptional in the advancement or development of the digital signage industry, as well as their ability to best serve end users and consumers.
