Samsung plaudits for Signagelive channel partnership18 February 2016
Cloud-based digital signage technology platform provider Signagelive has achieved Platinum Partner status on the new Samsung SSSP (Samsung Smart Signage Platform) Partner Programme, for continued technical support of the platform and outstanding commercial success further to securing a large number of high-profile contracts. The announcement was made by Samsung during ISE 2016 last week.
Signagelive and its network of strategic channel partners have sold several thousand licences since the launch of the original platform in 2014. Existing clients include the Lithuanian Post Office (PostPay), Maceys Convenience Store, Blinds.com and Vodafone Hutchinson Australia, which has purchased more than 1,000 SSSP licenses to date, making it Signagelive’s largest SSSP project.
Signagelive was one of the first companies to develop a commercial offering for the Samsung SSSP and as a result, all Samsung Smart displays, regardless of size and orientation, have been configured to support Signagelive software as standard.
At ISE 2016, Signagelive presented its latest system on chip (SoC) software version which is fully compatible with a range of near field communications (NFC) and Beacon technologies. Signagelive’s ability to support contextual and responsive digital signage applications means existing Samsung SSSP users can take their static digital signage networks into the interactive world for minimal investment.
Signagelive’s cloud-based SoC software, written in HTML5 for cross platform functionality, provides full support for different content formats including static images, HD video, web pages, IPTV, multi-zoning for different media types, image layering, RSS feeds, portrait support and screen on and off control. It also comprises optional proof of content and delivery functionality for better network and campaign management.
“To be awarded Platinum Partner Status is a formidable achievement,” commented Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive. “We have worked in close partnership with the Samsung SSSP technical team from the outset to develop a portfolio of out of the box applications for key industries so the Samsung SSSP could be promoted as a turnkey solution. Our ability to support contextual and responsive applications significantly enhances that offering.”
