LAS VEGAS, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hi-Tek Media is proud to announce a partnership with iSIGN Media Corp. (“iSIGN”)  (TSX-V: ISD) (OTC: ISDSF), to provide marketing services to mobile devices, combined with Security Alert Messaging (“SAM”) in specific metropolitan areas in the United States. Hi-Tek Media will integrate iSIGN’s innovative proprietary Smart Antenna hardware and SAM solutions to be installed on stationary and mobile platforms to provide unique marketing solutions combined with security alert messaging.

To create this first of its kind network in the U.S., Hi-Tek Media is constructing mobile networks using iSIGN’s high technology hardware aboard emergency vehicles. The system provides broad coverage across specifically chosen locations and delivers an innovative partnership of SAM and commercial marketing delivery.

“Because the network is installed on emergency vehicles, it can remain operable during a crisis and will include a disaster mode that will interrupt marketing functions in a crisis,” said Hi-Tek Media CEO Michele Bedwell. “The network plan for 2300 Smart Antenna units will provide for improved public safety while offering a valuable new way for businesses to reach new customers and offer them integrated connectivity across social media and the web.”

Hi-Tek Media has chosen its home state of Nevada for the first network launch, with plans to expand to Texas, Illinois and Massachusetts during the first quarter of 2019. Planned expansions include eleven (11) states by end of 2019. 

The marketing element of this program comes with commitments from Hi-Tek Media to make iSIGN’s SAM, the public safety element, the first priority.

Hi-Tek’s expectations, based on clients and their operations in Nevada, Texas, Illinois and Massachusetts is that 1,000 SAM licenses as well as 1,000 Smart Antennas would be required during the first year of the partnership.  Revenue expectation for the first 24 months of the partnership is anticipated to be approximately $2.9 million.
