Mercury Online buys remote rebooting devices

Digital signage software provider Mercury Online has purchased a number of remote rebooting devices from Nighthawk Systems in an apparent bid to make their digital signage players more reliable. There's a vote of confidence if I've ever heard one :) From the PR:

"Nighthawk Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:NIHK), a leading provider of intelligent wireless power control products, announced today that Mercury Online Solutions has placed an order for 75 remote rebooting units, including 25 of Nighthawk's NH8 rack-mounted units and 50 NH100 units. The units will be installed in multiple, widespread locations as part of Mercury Online Solutions' ongoing three-year digital communications contract with one of the nation's largest financial holding companies.

In a recent article in the Dynamic Digital Signage Directory titled 'Building the Digital Signage Network,' John Kirkpatrick, Chief Sales Officer of Mercury Online Solutions, stressed the importance of being able to monitor and reboot every location remotely in order to have an efficient, effective digital signage network. Mercury Online has utilized Nighthawk products to remotely reboot digital displays for customers since the fall of 2002."

Sure thing, but I think I'll use a Linux-based digital signage system and not have to worry about hardware rebooting cards.
