True Colours gets UK BrightSign distribution deal13 December 2012
True Colours Distribution, the technical division of Midwich, has announced a UK distribution deal with digital signage developer BrightSign, on the back of the US company’s recent successes in Europe and Australia.
A worldwide provider of digital signage controllers, software and networking solutions for the commercial digital signage industry, True Colours believes that BrightSign is an excellent addition to the company’s portfolio.
“I am delighted to be able to offer our customers the unsurpassed digital signage capabilities of BrightSign’s slim OS,” said Dave Raymen, technical director at True Colours. “A market-leading solution which is simple to understand, cost effective and reliable, it also delivers exceptional Full HD video quality with a solid-state platform you can depend on.”
True Colours said that BrightSign technology fits perfectly alongside its existing portfolio as it can be sold as part of a preconfigured display bundle with a hosted service, offering customers a scalable and cost-effective solution. Alternatively, customers who already have screens can purchase the player as a stand-alone unit.
Whether used for a single site or to manage a worldwide multi-site hosted solution, the BrightSign system is scalable using the free BrightAuthor software. The visual-based interface enables users to easily create full-screen or multi-zone playlists for looping displays, and implement BrightSign features such as day-parting and networking. Simple data integration, or Live Text, can be used to connect Twitter feeds, stock tickers and other public and private databases to PoP displays, menu boards, waitlist, manufacturing or corporate displays and more.
