Lamar Advertising Launches the First Interactive Digital Screen In a Canadian Public Transit System

Baton Rouge, LA – January 11, 2012 – Vancouver City subway passengers will now be greeted with a bright, interactive wakeup call on their commute to work. Lamar Advertising Company (Nasdaq: LAMR) has partnered with Monster Media Canada to light up the public transit system of Canada with their Monster Wall: the first interactive large LCD screen in a Canadian public transit system.

Located in one of Canada Line's highest traffic stations – Vancouver City Station – at the corner of Granville and West Georgia, the Monster Wall sits in the heart of downtown Vancouver's busiest business, retail and entertainment districts. Canada Line's Vancouver City Station experiences an average of over 750,000 boards monthly. The Canadian Telecommunications company TELUS is the first advertiser to launch a campaign on the Monster Wall screen.

“Using motion recognition, touch control and mobile device communication capabilities, the Monster Wall in Vancouver City Station will be sure to capture and hold the attention of daily commuters,” said Lamar Transit Advertising Canada Ltd. General Sales Manager Dan Maure.  “We are offering 21st century digital solutions to our advertisers with this innovative technology.”
