C-nario and AOpen, a leading small form factor (SFF) computer system manufacturer and a digital signage solution provider, today announced a partnership for the digital signage market. AOpen will integrate C-nario’s C-sign digital signage solution with its Digital Engine platform, and will market the integrated system to small and medium businesses (SMBs) across the United States.
The integrated system will be launched at Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW), to be held November 10-11, 2010 at the Javits Convention Center, New York and the system will be displayed at AOpen’s booth (#421).
AOpen’s Digital Engine is of course a compact and efficient media player, comprising various options, including TV tuner, Bluetooth, wireless LAN and mounting kits. Digital Engine offers a complete solution for digital signage applications, supporting high-definition video output. The system is shock and vibration proof, and it can be tailored to fit the user’s requirements.

AOpen has extensive experience in the digital signage sphere, and a wide distributors network that can distribute C-sign to numerous businesses across the United States. The integration of Digital Engine’s quality and ease of operation, with C-sign’s unique features, opens new horizons for small and medium businesses.”

This is great news to AOpen’s distribution partners that have been promised this over 3 months ago before AOpen’s San Francisco partner forum.
Getting these self-contained software bundles (from reputable software manufacturers) into broadline distribution will also help adoption and increase sales through the VAR channel.
We are hearing more MFG’s are following suit with similar bundle deals, enabling their partners sell ‘out of the box’ DS solutions.
