Digital Future is an Estonian-based outdoor media group active in digital out-of-home (DOOH), traditional billboard advertising and digital signage.

In traditional non-digital OOH, the group's company MegaMedia is the leader in standard 6x3m and large wall billboard formats, offering complementary long-term digitization potential. Digital Future also has an extensive track record in providing custom LED solutions with full service package and in digital signage, and managing content on behalf of its clients.

Within media the company owns the largest media group n the Baltics, Postimees Grupp, which is active in print and online media, television, radio and printing services.
By acquiring Digital Future, the media group enters the attractive OOH market, which has been the fastest-growing segment within traditional media, providing thus an excellent growth platform both in Estonia and developing digital outdoor markets in Latvia and Lithuania.
