BrightSign and signagelive have teamed up to ensure full compatibility between their products.
Distributed in 35 countries, signagelive’s cloud-based digital signage software can now be paired with the pristine HD quality and high reliability of BrightSign’s PC-less digital players. During #ISE2012, signagelive will be providing live demos of the new BrightSign-driven solutions and examples of real life applications at its Stand #10P115.
Initially, Signagelive is launching two new versions of signagelive that support BrightSign’s popular line of four network-enabled players: the BrightSign Standard Edition with full screen media support, and a BrightSign Pro Edition with multi-zone content capabilities.
“We selected BrightSign players for their proven reliability, advanced features and ability to get the most out of our signagelive platform,” said Jason Cremins, CEO of signagelive. “For the first time, the BrightSign range of networked devices can be integrated with signagelive to provide a solution that rivals the technical capabilities and stability of more expensive PC-based solutions. It is my belief that our combined offering provides the best price/performance of any digital signage solution available today.”
“We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to expand our worldwide presence with a leading software brand like signagelive,’‘ said Jeff Hastings, BrightSign CEO. “BrightSign and signagelive are both strong, well-respected brands with loyal customer bases that continue to grow. We view the combination of our brands as a win-win situation that will accelerate business opportunities for everyone involved, including the distribution and reseller channels.”
signagelive delivers a ‘software as a service’ (SaaS) platform for digital signage. The software provides the tools for layout creation, content uploading, scheduling, delivery, playback and reporting of digital media content over fixed and mobile Internet connections.
BrightSign offers four networked models that are compatible with the signagelive solution. The HD210 and HD1010 provide Ethernet ports for wired networking connections. For increased mobility and versatility, BrightSign also offers solid-state media controllers with built-in Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n) capabilities. By eliminating the complexity, clutter and restrictions of connecting cables, the wireless HD210w and HD1010w models save time while lowering deployment costs because users don’t have to run network cabling to spaces that normally wouldn’t have them.
With the benefits the BrightSign players and sinagelive software provide, combining them makes a compelling solution for a broad range of vertical sectors ranging from single-screen solutions in schools to thousands of devices around the world for retail brands and digital media owners.
