Continuing a partnership that begun at last year’s Digital Signage Expo, Tightrope Media Systems and BrightSign are partnering up once again to demonstrate integrated digital signage technology at this year’s tradeshow in Las Vegas, Mar. 10-13.
The two companies aim to leverage each of their platforms in order to provide large out-of-home networks and video walls on a tightly integrated, robust and scalable signage architecture.
Tightrope and BrightSign announced the partnership for the first time at DSE 2014.
“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,” says BrightSign CEO Jeff Hastings.
More from BrightSign’s press release:
The combination of Tightrope’s strengths in advanced content creation and management, and BrightSign’s market-leading technology and signature reliability, results in a winning solution for any business or network operator to manage an affordable and sophisticated digital signage network.
This year, Tightrope and BrightSign will demonstrate seamless integration between Tightrope’s Carousel digital signage system and BrightSign’s next-generation XD2 players. The companies will exhibit two spaces apart (Tightrope at 2631; BrightSign at 2131), demonstrating how the integrated platform produces stunning videowall displays; as well as highly scalable and manageable networks for enterprise-level businesses and organizations.
New features of the integrated platform including portrait mode display and H.264 video streaming support to enhance visual capabilities for any signage network or application. Additionally, newly available media player synchronization for videowalls ensures that Carousel can drive content to multiple BrightSign players, which collectively deliver video and graphics across many panels for cohesive output and display of stunning visual content.
BrightSign XD2 networked media players, to be shown in the North America for the first time at Digital Signage Expo, 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.
