Team Tightrope and BrightSign come together for the ultimate digital signage solution for large out-of-home networks.

Available from Almo Pro AV, combine the powerful features of the Carousel software with the unparalleled performance of BrightSign‘s XD230 Networked Interactive Player and you’ve got the most sophisticated digital signage platform that can scale to the largest of deployments.

Brian Rhatigan, Business Development Manager for Almo says “Tightrope Media Systems’ Carousel digital signage software has now been optimized and certified to run on BrightSign’s XD230 hardware platform. With no moving parts, solid state reliability, and low power consumption all at a fraction of the cost of a PC based media player, this is a very attractive option when considering a digital signage roll out. In addition to the cost savings on the hardware, Carousel adds additional functionality to BrightSign players that is not available with the free BrightAuthor software which is included with the XD230, like real-time emergency notifications, and advanced data integration with Facebook, blogs, and calendars such as iCal, MS Exchange, & MS Sharepoint.”
