Charlotte, NC (February 2015)* – T1V, a provider of interactive touchscreen technology, has merged with Cenique by purchasing the assets of Cenique USA, LLC, now dba Cenique Global. Cenique Global will operate as a division of T1V, allowing the company to leverage T1V’s operational and support infrastructure, while continuing to focus efforts on supporting the digital signage industry with its low-cost Android media players, development services, and analytics solutions.
Scale Finance has provided part-time CFO services to T1V in recent years and Managing Director, Dave Gilroy, advised T1V on their acquisition of Cenique throughout the transaction process.
T1V merges with Cenique to expand its product offering in the digital signage market. The merger provides T1V new access to Presence Awareness technology based on Anonymous Video Analytics (AVA), which can be integrated with T1V’s Interactive Platform of touchscreen tables, touchscreen walls, and mobile apps to create the next generation of interactive technology.
T1V identified Cenique’s technology as an opportunity to differentiate and expand its product offering, while extending the benefits of Cenique’s low-cost, Android-based digital signage solutions to its customers in retail, enterprise, education, hospitality, and tradeshow markets. The move comes as Cenique Global has experienced rapid growth since its inception in 2013. “Cenique is a leader in digital signage solutions for both DIY and commercial integrators alike, offering a range of solutions that are low-cost, flexible, and that feature cutting-edge technology,” explains Mike Feldman, CEO of T1V. “What’s more – we’ve identified many opportunities to integrate Cenique’s AVA (anonymous video analytics) software with our own T1V Platform – providing additional features and metrics that we can now extend to our customers.”
Ron Levac, General Manager of Cenique Global, adds: “we quickly recognized the benefits of working with T1V – together, with the expanded support structure and financial backing, we are in a better position to support our existing and future CMS clients, and to expand the scope of our flagship video analytics technology to new and exciting applications.”
*NOTE: This transaction was subsequently unwound with T1V divesting Cenique USA assets late in 2016
