Clear Channel to Put People Out of Work With New Technology

magink.jpg

MediaPost reports Clear Channel is testing a new outdoor technology, previously mentioned here in 2003, from Magink that will replace vinyl with molecular coated plastic tiles which will react to an electrical current to form an image making changing billboard copy changes a matter of pushing a few buttons in a remote office. The technology will allow for multiple ads to appear on a single board and, with the ability to change images 70 times per second, potentially allow for video. While the cost to install these boards is five times that of vinyl, it will allow advertisers more flexibility, make more money for Clear Channel and eliminates the need for paper, vinyl, printing and labor costs. All you production and vinyl people better find something else to do.

I wi8ll be interesting what the various state and city regulatory types have to say. I have a group here in Omaha who are wanting to put up a simple electronic sign in front of their building and the Planning Board said NO!
