Second-Consecutive-Year

2015 International Digital Signage Awards Names Cineplex Digital Networks Content Creator of the Year

TORONTO, CANADACineplex Digital Networks (CDN), a provider of digital out-of-home (DOOH) ad networks was presented with the Overall Content Creator of the Year award at the 2015 International Digital Signage Awards (“IDSA”), for its second consecutive year. CDN received two additional category awards during the April 22 announcement, for Exhibition and Conventions, and Restaurant, Catering and Hospitality.

Tim Hortons’ Interactive Wall (pictured above) garnered the top prize in the Exhibitions and Conventions category. Created for the Tim Hortons 2014 Convention, the installation set the standard for CDN’s seamless synergy of creative and technology. The prototype was developed to showcase future innovation for guest engagement and entertainment within the restaurant. Showcasing localized information, interactive maps and infographics, videos, and multi-language support, the Interactive Wall was one of the highlights of Tim Hortons’ Restaurant of the Future, a fully functional future concept store that was built within the Toronto Convention Centre.

“We are extremely proud of our teams and of their continuously outstanding work,” said Nick Prigioniero, President, Cineplex Digital Networks. “CDN strives to be at the forefront of creative and technological innovation and working with top brands like Tim Hortons has helped us raise the bar within the QSR industry.”

“We are excited to hear of Cineplex Digital Networks’ recognition,” said David Clanachan, President and COO, Tim Hortons Canada. “The Interactive Wall was one of the hallmark features in the Restaurant of the Future and this award demonstrates CDN’s talent and commitment to delivering the best digital innovative experiences for our guests.”

NBC Wins the 2014-15 TV Season in Adults 18-49

There are still three nights to go in the 2014-15 TV season, but NBC has already declared victory, winning the September-to-May season among adults ages 18 to 49 for a second consecutive year.

The network averaged a 2.4 rating for the season in that demographic, just edging out CBS’ 2.3 and ABC’s 2.2. Fox brought up the rear with a 1.9.

NBC also was second in total viewers, with 8.6 million, far behind CBS, which won with 11.3 million. ABC came in third with 8 million, and Fox again lagged behind the competition with 5.8 million. It’s the second year in a row NBC finished No. 2 in total viewers and the first two times since 2003-04 the network has finished higher than fourth.

“We feel fortunate to follow our long-awaited victory last year with a second consecutive season-long win,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt, adding that the work of his entertainment, news and sports divisions “has been the key to transforming a broadcast network that three years ago had the Super Bowl on its schedule—and, yet, still landed in last place—into the network that is still the No. 1 prime-time and late-night champion this year."  

The biggest keys to NBC’s repeat victory were The Voice, the No. 1 unscripted series among 18- to 49-year-olds; NBC Sunday Night Football, broadcast TV’s highest-rated series in the demographic; and, of course, the Super Bowl, which was the most-watched telecast in U.S. history with 114.4 million viewers and was ultimately what kept CBS from overtaking NBC by season’s end.

That’s why CBS is already "pretty confident” it will take the top spot next season, CBS Corp. president and CEO Les Moonves told reporters last week. “We came in second to NBC in adults 18 to 49 by 122,000,” said Moonves. “That’s less than Paterson, N.J."—and they are airing the Super Bowl in February. But, for now, NBC has retained the crown.

Congrats to @matyryan voted ‘Goalkeeper of the Year’ for the second consecutive year by his 360 fellow footballers in the Jupiler Pro League in Belgium. Add to this a Belgian Cup & Asian Cup. After the Germany v #Socceroos game in Kaiserslautern, I was able to travel back to Mainz with Mat(a car mic up). We chatted about football, the past 12months & life. His mindset on what he wants to achieve and his professionalism to get there, means this is just the start. He is one of the realist guys in football. His love for his family and never forgetting where he has come from will never change. This is just the beginning for a genuine superstar. That car trip was a true highlight of the year for Local FC. Well don bro 🙌🏽 @clubbrugge_official #football #photography #changingthegame Photography #GERvAUS in Kaiserslautern by Chad Gibson/@localfc
