BrightSign and Tightrope announce closer links for Digital Signage Expo and beyond27 February 2015
Tightrope Media Systems and BrightSign have announced they will evolve their partnership throughout 2015 starting with Digital Signage Expo (DSE) in March. The companies are developing innovations to more effectively power videowalls and large out-of-home networks on integrated, scalable signage architecture.
Central to the partnership is the integration of Tightrope’s Carousel digital signage system and Brightsign’s XD2 players. The companies will exhibit two spaces apart at DSE and demonstrate how the integrated platform produces videowalls and scalable networks for businesses.
Tightrope’s integrated platform includes new features such as portrait mode and H.264 video streaming support to enhance visual capabilities for any signage network or application. Additionally, newly available media player synchronisation for videowalls means that Carousel can drive content to multiple BrightSign players, which collectively deliver video and graphics across many panels.
BrightSign XD2 networked media players, are being shown for the first time in North America at DSE, all feature faster HTML5 and graphics processing as well as Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability to simplify the powering of BrightSign players in remote locations.
BrightSign CEO, Jeff Hastings, commented: “Our respective companies are committed to technology innovation and continued integration work to provide our integrators, VARs and end-users a leading solution for sophisticated and robust digital signage roll-outs in all shapes and sizes.”
Eric Henry, signage solutions lead, Tightrope Media Systems, added: “We continue to bring more depth to our partnership, with dedicated project managers from both companies working together to develop new features and functionality for our combined customer base of resellers, integrators and end users.
“Digital Signage Expo is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the most recent innovations from our combined efforts.”
