Times Square will soon be receiving three state-of the-art phone kiosks by Titan. These kiosks will be equipped with digital screens capable of showing both HD video and static images of advertisements lasting seven seconds each.

Despite the popular belief that no one uses payphones in this age of growing mobile technology, Titan claims to MediaPost that it actually still receives sufficient revenue from payphone usage by tourists and residents alike. However, Titan, which currently owns 2,552 payphones and 1,762 kiosks totaling a potential for more than 5,000 ad spaces, is hoping to add a new revenue source in the form of advertising. Pending the success of this pilot, the company has the capability of growing their business substantially.
