Carousel Digital Signage has announced the integration of Carousel Cloud with BrightSign’s BSN.cloud, eliminating the need to physically configure BrightSign media players while accelerating digital signage network deployments of any scale in the cloud.
Carousel Digital Signage introduced Carousel Cloud last year as a subscription-based SaaS platform. Carousel Cloud is a suitable solution for any business or enterprise seeking an off-premise hosted digital signage service with limitless scalability.
Interoperability with BSN.cloud means that Carousel Digital Signage users can quickly deploy a complete digital signage solution with minimal infrastructure and maintenance, limitless scalability, and low total cost of ownership.
The BSN.cloud integration adopts the successful Carousel Digital Signage model to achieve these benefits. A Carousel Cloud engine running on the BrightSign media player immediately configures the device for content playout upon connection.
This eliminates the need to manage settings, enable SD cards, and work through other configuration processes that often delay deployment. End users and integrators can subsequently manage, monitor and control players through the BSN.cloud Control Cloud, a free cloud-based subscription for all BrightSign media players.
“The ability to deploy this integrated solution directly through BrightSign’s BSN.cloud interface aligns with our strategy of simplifying digital signage for any customer, and for networks of any scale,” says JJ Parker, CEO, Carousel Digital Signage. “Our goal is to take our customers directly from shrink wrap to digital signage, without the time and complexities of managing physical configurations on media players, or the concerns of ongoing maintenance.”
“We are pleased that our longtime partner, Carousel Digital Signage, has taken advantage of the BSN.cloud Control Cloud service we recently launched,” adds Jeff Hastings, CEO of BrightSign. “We expect the value will be immediately apparent to our mutual customers moving forward.”
Carousel Cloud brings the standard benefits of any cloud service, eliminating the expense and maintenance associated with traditional hardware servers. Instead, Carousel Cloud delivers a lightweight, software-defined architecture that is centralised within an offsite IT infrastructure, with the ability to easily scale networks.
The result is an enterprise-wide digital signage platform that keeps the focus on content development and audience engagement, with expansion limited only by the size of the organization. Carousel Cloud’s centralised platform also accommodates more users from more locations, keeping playlists fresh and networks dynamic.
Carousel Digital Signage will participate in the BSN.cloud Partner Pavilion (Booth 2815) at the Digital Signage Expo, which takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from March 27-28.
