Bank of America - latest network failure (bsod)

Much has been written here about the disappointing execution of Bank of America's digital signage network--poor screen placement, primitive TV/bank content mix, etc.--but the feared black-screen-of-death ("BSOD") captured across at least nine screens in a high-profile location during rush hour is without doubt a new low. Network operators, this is a lesson on why local cache-ing of content ("store and forward"), PC redundancy and/or local service should be non-negotiable criteria for your digital signage technology.

Maybe the "no sync" message on the screen is meant to signify that the bank and Creative Realities, its digital signage provider, just "don't get it"...

The truth has been spake! Locally cached content is critically important, especially for banks with thousands of locations.

However, efficient reliable content distribution is a more significant challenge than purchasing inexpensive caches.

Banks would be wise to focus their energy on vendors with expertise distributing to large, multi-location enterprises via satellite, 3&4 G cellular, and WAN. When you find mulitcast content distribution proponents, you probably want to speak with them exclusively.

Bank of America seems to continue to be pretty focused on the print and more traditional signage vs. going digital... is it true that traditional signage can drive similar results of digital signage in the financial institutions, for a small fraction of the investment i.e. no screen installation, etc?

There don't seem to be many digital screens at BofA locations yet, are they just getting into it? Who does the screens for BofA anyway?

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
