Ping HD offers a little background on its EngagePHD content management system.

It used to be that Commercial Integrator had the inside track on Ping HD, a digital signage specializing integration firm that develops software and clues us in to dynamic digital signage projects with its sports venue customers — and its less mainstream marijuana dispensary customers. However, the secret is out and Ping HD’s EngagePHD content management system (CMS) software is helping it make high-profile friends such as Samsung, LG and most recently BrightSign.

Digital signage player maker BrightSign says it has earned preferred vendor status for its Series 3 media players with Ping HD and that its media players integrate with EngagePHD CMS.

In a press release, BrightSign calls the integration with Ping HD “yet another milestone in the company’s effort to partner with top CMS providers.” It recently announced compatibility with CMS providers ComQi, Four Winds Interactive and Signagelive.

“Our work with Ping HD underscores BrightSign’s commitment to partner with leading digital signage CMS providers, giving them the reliable, affordable hardware to bring their content to life,” says BrightSign CEO Jeff Hastings.

“We’re pleased to be working closely with Ping HD to bring successful digital signage solutions to the restaurant industry and beyond.”

For Ping HD’s part, “We’ve created EngagePHD to be a very robust, feature-rich content management system for our customers, and we rely on BrightSign’s players to reliably serve up that content, without fail,” says Ping HD Kevin Goldsmith.

“Tightening our collaboration with BrightSign is a great win for our customers, giving them a best-of-breed solution that encompasses some of the best content tools and digital signage hardware on the market today.”
