The BrightSign platform is a reliable, non-PC, solid-state digital sign and kiosk controller system designed to manage any digital sign or interactive display. The BrightSign controllers deliver high-quality, high-definition video, images and audio. Users can play media automatically from flash memory cards. Interactive features include support for touch-screens, buttons, mice and other input devices. BrightSign also supports networking for remote content delivery, scheduling of content playback, synchronization of multiple displays for video wall applications, and zones for displaying multiple content windows on a single screen.
BrightSign’s product line-up includes a freestanding tabletop display that creates high-resolution video displays instantly without external power or wiring, two looping sign controllers, three interactive sign controllers, and four networked sign controllers. The four networked controllers include two simple looping media players and two full-featured interactive sign controllers that can be connected via WiFi or Ethernet. Across the entire product portfolio, each model offers a different level of functionality, so customers only pay for the features they need. All controllers are dependable, compact and unobtrusive.
