The morning press - digital signage news for July 25

Here are some of today's interesting clips from the web:

  • Focus Enhancements Receives NASDAQ Delist Letter - Focus Enhancements, Inc. today received a staff determination letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market Inc. stating the company's common stock is subject to delisting from the NASDAQ Capital Market for not meeting the market value of publicly held shares requirement for continued listing. (Companies get this letter when they fail to meet some ongoing NASD requirement, typically having their share trade at below $1 for a month or more)
  • Wireless HD Gets a New Standard Effort - An Israeli chip startup pushing a form of whole-home, uncompressed wireless HD has teamed up with Sony, Samsung, Sharp, Hitachi and Motorola to create a WHDI special interest group. The company, Animon, already has products out on the market that offer wireless HD using the same 5 GHz spectrum used by Wi-Fi.
  • Out-of-Home Advertising Evolves to Include Technology - According to Experian Consumer Research, out-of-home advertisements tend to be rated positively by consumers and they also seem to have success in capturing the attention of consumers. Using technology to build upon traditional advertising techniques has helped bring out-of-home advertising up to date, and has also kept it at the top of its game in terms of appealing to consumers. (Well, duh.)
  • Aisle Sensor Data Avalanche To Hit By September - The data from several unrelated retail sensor projects—all of which track consumers electronically during their shopping experience—will be hitting IT desks soon, as no fewer than three such efforts are going to be announced by September.
