NEW YORK, April 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vistar Media, the leading global provider of technology solutions for out-of-home (OOH) media, today announced that Lamar Advertising Company, one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in the world, selected Vistar’s content management software (CMS), Cortex, to power its network of digital out-of-home (DOOH) billboards across the U.S. The agreement follows a partnership forged in 2023 in which Lamar chose Vistar to run its Denver Transit DOOH network.

Lamar offers advertisers the largest network of digital billboards in the U.S., boasting nearly 5,000 displays serving over 5 billion weekly impressions. Lamar deployed Cortex to its entire DOOH network in less than six weeks with zero downtime. The smooth transition underscores the effectiveness of Vistar’s Cortex software suite, purpose built for the distinctive demands of DOOH networks.

Sukhvinder Singh, SVP, Technology & Innovation at Lamar Advertising shared, “Having partnered with Vistar for over a decade, we were confident in their proven track record of success and trusted the unique technology they have built to power a DOOH network of our size. We have a shared passion for impactful OOH advertising, and we’re excited to expand on our partnership with Vistar to continue connecting advertisers with audiences that matter to them. The speed and efficiency with which we deployed their technology across our network was truly impressive.”

“Lamar’s nationwide footprint, paired with the sheer size of its digital billboards, allows advertisers to reach consumers with unparalleled creative impact,” said Eric Lamb, SVP, Enterprise Solutions at Vistar Media. “A network of this scale and influence deserves industry-leading technology to support it, and Vistar is thrilled to expand our CMS partnership across Lamar’s billboard network.
