Haivision will showcase its newly acquired CoolSign digital signage technology for the first time at ISE, and will demonstrate how its existing line of IP video systems combine with CoolSign technology to deliver intelligent video, graphics, and data to any desktop, display, digital frame and mobile device.
"Until now there has been a dividing line between video streaming and the world of digital signage, forcing integrators and their customers to jump between platforms and products for different visual communication applications," said Peter Maag, executive vice president at Haivision Network Video. "At ISE 2011, we will demonstrate how the addition of CoolSign digital signage technology to our portfolio positions Haivision as the only company capable of delivering end-to-end technology solutions for enterprise communications across all media delivery platforms and networks. This represents a major step forward in terms of simplifying integration challenges and managing what is displayed on screens everywhere and anywhere."
Haivision says that CoolSign is a feature-rich signage solution that incorporates sophisticated and patented technology to control, schedule, distribute, display, and monitor digital media, and that can scale to meet the demands of digital signage deployments of any size. CoolSign is said to be able to manage media displays from complex video walls, to synchronised flat panels, to highly distributed picture frames.
"The cost and headaches involved in reconciling different systems to create a comprehensive media delivery solution are simply too much for most integrators," said Lou Giacalone Jr., CoolSign founder. "Haivision's unique ability to offer a single-vendor solution that addresses streaming, signage, store-and-forward, and interactive applications simply and cost-effectively makes our company the true leader within the marketplace."
