Deloitte ranks digital signage firm PlayNetwork on Washington state Technology Fast 50

PlayNetwork Inc. announced today that for the third year in a row it has earned a place in the top ranks of Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Washington State. PlayNetwork was named Tuesday by Deloitte & Touche LLP as the 17th fastest-growing technology company in the state with its growth rate of 476 percent during a five-year span from 2000 to 2004.

Technology Fast 50 companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2000 and $1,000,000 in 2004, be headquartered in Washington, and be a "technology company," defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. PlayNetwork, with its proprietary media management system and professional support services, provides high-profile retailers and restaurants with customized media (music, messaging, digital signage and other media) services to enhance their stores with a branded customer experience.
This is especially impressive when you consider that all of the digital signage network owner's sites rely on the manual changing of DVDs every month (for their video narrowcasting networks, anyway. I don't know how they handle their audio-only networks). Quite a logistics operation. You can find out more about their award here.
