BrightSign, LLC and Signagelive jointly announced this week that Signagelive has recently deployed a new interactive kiosk mode feature for all BrightSign Series 3 and Series 4 players, as well as for Bluefin’s BrightSign Built-In solutions.
The update, which we believe is being pushed to all Signagelive Administrators this week, is further evidence of Signagelive’s commitment to continually update, improve and optimise the user experience on the company’s platform. Signagelive’s digital signage platform is used globally by over 2,000 organisations to manage their networks. Supplying digital signage software and services to multiple markets including retail, education, and hospitality, to over 46 countries across EMEA, Americas and Asia Pacific.
The update allows users to configure any BrightSign device connected to a single-touch touchscreen to be used as a kiosk. When the BrightSign player is not being interacted with, it will play the scheduled content from Signagelive as a normal Signagelive media player. When a user interacts with the touchscreen, the player will trigger the content that is published to an Interrupt – this can be a web page or Widget. Once the user has stopped interacting with the screen, the player will revert to the scheduled content until the next interaction.
To ensure this solution is suitable for retail kiosk deployments such as in-store product catalogue or ordering solutions, data like usernames and passwords are cleared between sessions to further protect the security of users’ personal information.
Signagelive began the BrightSign Kiosk Mode update on October 17th, with the update completing over a 24-hour period as users’ BrightSign players connected to the Signagelive platform. No user intervention was required during the course of this update, which has been made available to all Signagelive licensees at no charge.
Note that on Wednesday October 31st, 2018 during New York Digital Signage Week, BrightSign are holding a Happy Hour at the Press Lounge (some of you may remember this incredibly popular event from last year). The Press Lounge is the swanky bar on the roof of the Ink48 Hotel and features 360-degree city and Hudson River views.
