Well one thing is for sure, you don’t need to worry about CoolSign any more – whether you were a competitor (software vendor), a channel partner or even an end user looking for a solution its days are now numbered.
The writing was on the wall for the company’s demise the moment they axed Drew Topel, one of the system’s key architects.
We know that some eyebrows were raised when we wrote “Notable absentees from the list are Haivision / CoolSign who were last year’s number eight” back in March when we published our DSTop10 for 2011.
However we are sure that many of our readers will now agree that with the events that have unfolded this year there was no way (and is no way) that CoolSign can be treated as a credible digital signage offering.
Haivision will no doubt continue the process of losing the CoolSign brand all together and we doubt if it will make any appearance at DSE at all.
