BrightSign is celebrating shipping its one millionth media player, with the company reaching the landmark milestone heading into the second half of what promises to be the company’s strongest calendar year.
“It’s pretty gratifying to think that there are now more than a million BrightSign players out in the field, powering rich digital experiences in dozens of countries across the globe,” says Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “This accomplishment is testament to the dedication of our engineers and sales force, but most importantly our customers – their faith in BrightSign enabled rapid growth that helped cement our place as the preferred media player for virtually any digital signage application.”
August was a month of milestones for BrightSign. In addition to shipping its one millionth media player, the company was included in the Inc. 5000. This marks the fourth consecutive year BrightSign has been included in Inc. Magazine’s annual listing of the top-performing privately held companies based in the U.S.
Inc. Magazine will honour all the 2017 Inc. 5000 designees at the Inc. 5000 Conference & Gala Oct. 10-12 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, Calif.
Last year, the company launched its all-new player lineup—which is now comprised of seven players spanning four product lines—including several new features, lower prices and a thinner, sleeker form factor.
Throughout its history, BrightSign has never been shy about making major changes in response to market conditions.
BrightSign was among the first media player manufacturers to embrace the future of 4K, which is now starting to bear fruit as the content continues to become available for end users in a variety of vertical markets.
