Founder David Dalzell

David founded ONELAN in 1988 and successfully developed some of Europe's earliest FDDI high-speed data networking products for both commercial and military customers. David saw the potential for Digital Signage at a very early stage and became one of the industry's leading pioneers. Since the first Net-top-box (NTB) digital signage appliance in 2000, developed in true entrepreneurial style in the family barn, the company has gone from strength to strength, expanding globally and becoming the award winning trusted supplier it is today. Sadly David died in January 2013, but his vision continues to be driven forward by the Board of Directors taking the Company on to achieve even greater things.
