BrightSign is hoping to make a splash at ISE 2017, with the company set to debut its new Series 3 Player range at the show.
For those in-the-know, the BrightSign Series 3 Player range launched back in September with a number of new features to satisfy the digital signage industry. The range consists of seven new players that boast a slim profile under 1in in height that makes it possible to place the players virtually anywhere.
All of the new players integrate H.265 HEVC playback features and an M.2 interface for Wi-Fi antennae or a solid-state drive. The two product lines, XD and XT, offer a hardware accelerated H.265 video decoding engine capable of 4K HDR 10-bit video playback.
BrightAuthor software v4.6 enables a new feature on the HD, XD and XT players called Mosaic Mode, which allows a multitude of lower resolution videos to be played in multiple video zones that add up to the total resolution decoding power of the players video decoder. BrightSign Network, including the new B-Deploy feature, now supports media and player tagging for highly targeted content distribution to large networks of players.
BrightSign’s portfolio of digital signage media players is now comprised of seven players spanning four product lines. At the entry level, the LS423 is a fully featured, commercial-grade player offering an alternative to consumer devices often chosen for price-sensitive digital signage installations.
The HD223 and HD1023 add a more robust HTML5 engine and GPIO, serial and Gigabit networking. The two new XD players offer 4K support and can decode two 1080p60 videos simultaneously, while the top line BrightSign XT players offer better performance with the company’s fastest HTML and graphics engine and the most powerful CPU.
“We developed the new line of Series 3 players with the digital experience in mind,” notes Jeff Hastings, BrightSign CEO. “Digital Signage has become so much more than just graphics or video on a screen. Consumers expect an interactive and meaningful experience, and BrightSign technology makes it possible.”
