Web Signage is (ahead of Dynamax’s planned release of digitalsignage.net) the first digital signage software available through the Windows Azure cloud computing platform.
Edisonweb, the Italian software house that develops the Web Signage platform for digital signage, becomes officially a ‘Front Runner’ and announces the release and immediate availability of its solution for Windows Azure.
The solution consists of web based management application delivered as a service and a player software managing the multimedia content playback on digital signage displays. Web Signage Player has successfully passed compatibility tests conducted by Microsoft for the 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7.
Riccardo D’Angelo, CEO of Edisonweb told us “We are particularly proud of having achieved a first, in the software for digital signage arena, this important compatibility goal that will allow us to further shorten the release and development times and increase both scalability and performance, thanks to the great flexibility offered by the Windows Azure platform.
The compatibility with Microsoft’s cloud services of the Windows Azure platform, strengthens the offer towards the international markets: both software and infrastructure will be available as a service supplied through the Microsoft data centers spread throughout the world. Web Signage is always supplied by the nearest Windows Azure datacenter to ensure the highest performance.
Also, thanks to the evolution from SaaS to IaaS, a set of more flexible distribution and resale agreement, including OEM and co-brand formulas will be available to partners.

Its good to see other digital signage firms taking advantage of cloud-based services. Screenfeed has built our infrastructure using Amazon’s Web Services which is very similar to Microsoft Azure but its been around longer. We’ve had great results.
I believe Signagelive and MediaSignage.com are both using Cloudbased services as well.
