We are the Digital Signage programming specialists - those who are really dedicated to this industry and its requirements and are not tied to products or third-party companies.
We work for manufacturers of digital signage software and products, for integrators and solution providers, for distributors and for applying companies.
We solve your technical issue, connect your digital signage solution to your database, integrate data from Autoscout24, Immobilienscout24, Facebook or YouTube, expand the capabilities of your player and CMS, let your content interact with smart phones, create templates, manage your project, accompany your production in China or simply help if you need urgent reinforcement.
When you talk with us, you will get solutions of some of the most experienced specialists in the industry. You don’t have to explain us about resolutions, font sizes, proof of play, SoC, 24/7 or what to consider when a GB content is deployed to 2000 players. We know the requirements and pitfalls of a digital signage system from the scratch and have been working for decades in this business.
Of course we provide our services confidential and with customer protection.

CEO and founder.
I have been programming since I was 10 years old - when computers had a few kilobytes of memory. In 1993 I developed the first digital signage software in Germany (the term "digital signage" did not even exist yet) and worldwide there were hardly any companies that created similar software. At first we had to send hard drives by post office, later we sent CD-ROMs, a few years later updates were possible via internet. Since 1993 I have been working for my own company and other companies in the digital signage industry.

II have been programming since I was 10 years old - when computers had a few kilobytes of memory.

Since 1993 I have been working for my own company and other companies in the digital signage industry..
In my professional career I have run through all possible stages of a digital signage project: from conception to content production, from assembly to marketing and of course through all stages of software development and deployment.
For my last employer, I was also responsible for idea, concept, hardware development and production monitoring of digital signage tablet screens in China.
I am your contact person, your interface to technology and software developer teams.
There are eleven development specialists working in my team – each with multiple years of experience in digital signage. On demand I have 40 freelancers in all areas of development, for all operating systems and all relevant programming languages..

After delivery you may use the programmed modules to our agreement, there are no additional revenues requested or license-based invoices created.
if we can use existing solutions, we will offer them to you and use them in arrangement with our customer. This saves time and money. Of course we do develop entirely new software and concepts where necessary or requested.
We are no integrators, no agency, don’t sell our own software licenses but provide only individual services to our customers. However if the contract demands these services, we are happy to bring in our partners.
