Kuori is the first manufacturer to receive Google’s EDLA certification for outdoor digital out-of-home (DOOH) displays. Their Android-powered commercial displays are fully compatible with Google Mobile Services (GMS), require minimal power, and can withstand extreme conditions. Kuori aims to establish Android as the industry standard for large outdoor screens, as there is currently no universal operating system in place. Their modular and mass-customized Outdoor Digital Displays are widely used in various environments, offering improved customer experience and reducing electronic waste.
Similar certification systems by Google have already existed for mobile devices “MADA” (less than 17″) and for Android-TVs “TADA”. However, Kuori is the world’s first manufacturer to implement the Google framework for DOOH advertising on large outdoor and indoor screens. Certified Android screens enable an updatable and upgradable long-term standardized solution with continuous software and hardware development.
“There’s currently no industry standard for the software in large outdoor screens and they are commonly run with various non-standard open operating systems. Until now, there hasn’t been a universal operating system that’s common to everyone or that is reliable and easy to use. No other current provider in the world is running certified Android on large outdoor displays,” says Jarkko Jokelainen, CTO at Kuori. “This certification from Google tells us that they share our view of creating an industry standard, and our view is that Android will take over as the main DOOH operating system.”
With Android-based devices, Kuori expands the functionality of their screens, allowing control over heating, cooling, and more. The screens are certified by Google, enabling native support for digital signage applications. As an EDLA provider, Kuori offers mobile device management solutions, including zero-touch enrollment, mass-scale fleet deployment, over-the-air updates, and user-friendly remote management capabilities. Their goal is to provide a standardized, continuously developed solution for the DOOH industry.
