Yeager Airport Offers Big Screen Discount for
Charleston Area Alliance Members

Yeager Airport now is offering advertising opportunities on its new 156-square-foot electronic display.

The first 10 Charleston Area Alliance members to sign a one-year contract will pay $200 a month. The package includes 100 digital displays per day.

The large-format, 20mm Galaxy Pro Permanent Outdoor Video LED monitor is mounted on the terminal area side of Yeager's parking facility. The 17-foot by 10-foot screen is computer programmed on a pre-timed schedule. It displays local information and advertisements, providing media that is more efficient and cost-effective.

"We are very excited to add this new advertising format," said Yeager Director Richard A. Atkinson. "Our advertisers will have an inexpensive way to share their messages with target audiences that is very easy-to-update to reflect current promotional messages. It's like Times Square moves to Yeager Airport."

All advertisements can be scheduled for display based on a business' needs and current availability.

It would be visible to the more than 1 million combined passengers and meeter-greeters who pass through the airport annually.

The sign LED matrix is 128 rows by 256 columns. Advertising images need to be 256 pixels wide by 128 pixels high. Acceptable formats are GIF, Animated GIF, PNG, JPG, JPEG, BMP and TIFF. For AVI files, the display can support up to 1,200 message frames and a file size of 64 MB.

For more information on the display system, contact Terry Hill at (304) 344-8033.
