Web Signage, after being the first digital signage software worldwide to be delivered through the Windows Azure cloud computing platform, now introduces the full support to the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructure.
Windows Azure CDN is a continuously expanding data storage infrastructure distributed in 18 locations, spanning over USA, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. Windows Azure CDN is able to archive the content produced with Web Signage in a global cache, in order to make it available to the player that requires the data for the visualization on a digital signage display, with the maximum bandwidth from the closest location, on planetary scale.
In this regard, a project involving the partner A-Tono, a company leader in the development of solutions for the interactive and multichannel mobile marketing solutions is in the implementation phase.
A-Tono is using Web Signage and Windows Azure CDN to create and delivery multimedia content between the Italian headquarter in Milan and the Brazilian branch of Rio de Janeiro, as it was a single geographic area.
