Tightrope Media Systems and BrightSign have announced that they are evolving their partnership throughout 2015, with new innovations to more effectively power video-walls and large out-of-home networks on a tightly integrated, scalable and robust signage architecture.
The two companies says they are leveraging each other’s platforms within an integrated digital signage solution to enable these and additional benefits for their customers.
Last year at Digital Signage Expo, Tightrope and BrightSign announced a partnership to offer a cost-effective enterprise solution with a full suite of tools.
This year, Tightrope and BrightSign are demonstrating integration between Tightrope’s Carousel digital signage system and BrightSign’s next-generation XD2 players.
The companies are exhibiting two spaces apart (Tightrope at 2631; BrightSign at 2131), demonstrating how the integrated platform produces video-wall displays as well as highly scalable and manageable networks for enterprise-level businesses and organisations.
New features of the integrated platform include portrait mode display and H.264 video streaming support as well as newly available media player synchronization for video-walls ensuring that Carousel can drive content to multiple BrightSign players.
BrightSign XD2 networked media players 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.
Users of the integrated platform will also benefit from Carousel 6.5’s faster processing power, which accelerates content rendering at the creation levels.
The faster upfront rendering ensures quicker delivery to BrightSign media players across networks of any scale.
BrightSign CEO, Jeff Hastings, says: “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, adds: “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.”
