Digiplex Chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “We continue to make significant progress in strategically expanding Digiplex’s theater and screen footprint in leading markets around the country. At the end of our fiscal second quarter we were up to 159 screens in 16 locations, and added another two theaters with an aggregate of 19 screens in Sparta, NJ and Solon, OH subsequent to Q2. We are transforming each acquired facility into a digital entertainment center that adds significant incremental value to our operating base through accretive revenue, EBITDA and free cash flow generation. Digiplex has come a long way in less than a year since our April 2012 IPO and we are well positioned to achieve the 100 location/1000 screen goal we set for ourselves as a corporate milestone, and in the process we will continue to focus on creating incremental value for all our stakeholders.”

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.
