Haivision Acquires CoolSign

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Haivision, a provider of end-to-end H.264 IP video solutions, today announced that it has acquired the assets of CS Software Holdings, LLC, including the CoolSign product technology.

CoolSign is of course a veteran player in the digital signage market – established back in 1998 would you believe.

Mirko Wicha, president and CEO of Haivision Network Video told us “Haivision recognizes the opportunity for converging video streaming, IPTV, interactive media and digital signage,”

Lou Giacalone, Jr., CoolSign founder told us “It became obvious that Haivision and CoolSign had a perfectly aligned vision. With our substantial combined technical resources and deep industry expertise under one roof, we can deliver truly disruptive capabilities to the market.”

We understand that Haivision will maintain the CoolSign brand and simply place it under the Haivision umbrella. It’s likely also that it will make a number of cross product technical developments; for example perhaps introducing the Makito™ performance HD video encoding into the CoolSign solution suite and / or extending their Furnace™ IP video system with the signage control capabilities of CoolSign.

    Well, CoolSign is one of the few softwares that I actually thought it was pretty good (yes, I said it, I liked something else). good luck to them. I hope that these guys know where to enhance.
