MINNEAPOLIS, May 5, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNIN), a Minneapolis-based digital signage provider, continues to provide RoninCast(r) software and supporting services for the ongoing growth of the Thomson Reuters Infopoint digital signage network as it reached 250 displays in over 40 countries in early 2009.

"Thomson Reuters Infopoint has proven to be a great product for news and information distribution to the out-of-home market and we are very pleased to be a contributing factor in its substantial growth over the past two years," said James (Jim) C.
