The most common question we have been getting from network owners these past few months is how we think VUKUNET is doing.
From a PR perspective, NEC Display Solutions has been pretty quiet about it, either having nothing to say or much more likely, simply going about doing business – especially as we hear of a number of pilots ongoing (especially in Europe) and transactions moving through their system.
Two things publicly we do know though are, that:
- VUKUNET have a new promotional video up on their YouTube account (also see above)
- We’ve persuaded Pierre Richer, President, NEC Display Solutions North America to do a warts and all presentation, entitled ‘A Corporate Startup: How we launched VUKUNET‘ at The DailyDOOH Investor Conference in NYC, October. Pierre told us “Many people understand how to get private equity funding, but for many, it will be a first hearing how a conservative 115 year old Japanese, handed over millions of dollars to a non domestic business unit”. Not only that, he added “and all to try and create a new business with a technology that didn’t exist while being a total departure from it’s core business”.
