BrightSign and Signagelive today jointly announced that Signagelive recently deployed a new interactive kiosk mode feature for all BrightSign Series 3 and Series 4 players, as well as for Bluefin’s BrightSign Built-In solutions.
The update—which is being pushed to all Signagelive administrators this week—represents “further proof of Signagelive’s commitment to continually update, improve and optimize the user experience on the company’s platform,” according to the joint anonuncement.
“The update allows users to configure any BrightSign device connected to a single-touch touchscreen to be used as a kiosk,” according to the joint press release.
When BrightSign media players are not being interacted with, they will play the scheduled content from Signagelive as normal Signagelive media players, according to the announcement.
When a user interacts with the touchscreen, the player will trigger the content that is published to an Interrupt – this can be a web page or widget.
Once the user has stopped interacting with the screen, the player will revert to the scheduled content until the next interaction.
To ensure this solution is suitable for retail kiosk deployments such as in-store product catalog or ordering solutions, data such as usernames and passwords are cleared between sessions to further protect the security of users’ personal information.
When the BrightSign Kiosk Mode update finishes
Signagelive began the BrightSign Kiosk Mode update on Oct. 17 and it should be completed within 24 hours as users’ BrightSign players connected to the Signagelive platform. No user intervention was required during the course of this update, which has been made available to all Signagelive licensees at no charge.
BrightSign showcased some of the Series 4 BrightSign media players at InfoComm 2018, including the XD4 and XT4. Series 4 players support Dolby Vision and deliver BrightSign’s fastest performance to date.
The XD234 and XD1034 will replace the current XD Series 3 models and XT244 and XT1144 replaced the XT Series 3 line.
The XT line support PoE+ and XT1144 supports HDMI In to deliver Live TV to end points either via an HDMI cable or streaming over a network.
