Monster Media, an interactive technology pioneer and designer of
award-winning digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising solutions, has

interactive charging stations adding another layer of convenience to the
evolving passenger travel experience.

The Interactive Charging Station network includes kiosks in three select
airports: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL),
Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Dallas/Fort Worth
International Airport (DFW). Kiosks are ADA compliant and patent pending
by Monster Media and use embedded touch-enabled LED screens. They allow
travelers to charge their smartphones, tablets and laptops, keeping
vital lines of communication open to family, friends and business
Wireless’ 4G LTE network will be used to deliver digital ads to the
kiosks, including messages from Verizon.
Clear Channel Airports’ management of advertising programs at ATL, ORD
and DFW offer ideal placement for Monster Media’s charging stations. The
new kiosks feature built-in cameras that allow travelers to snap a quick
selfie to share with their families, friends and colleagues via social
sites. Campaigns can also reach across channels, prompting travelers to
connect to the brand via social media and email when prompted by
on-screen advertising content. The kiosks’ software captures usage
metrics to provide insights on campaign effectiveness to brands.
“This network gives advertisers a powerful new option to deepen their
audience exposure and consumer engagement with extended dwell time, and
at the traveler’s leisure,” said Jon Sayer, president, Clear Channel
Airports. “This work with Monster Media underscores our commitment to
reinventing air travel experience for both maximum convenience and
advertiser benefit while engaging with the connected consumer in
“The interactive charging stations present advertisers with a way to
slow down the busy traveler, present them with a free service, and in
exchange, capture their time and attention to view messages from
advertisers,” said Chris Beauchamp, CEO, Monster Media.
