BrightSign to Partner with Philips Signage Solutions at InfoComm 2013
Market Leaders in Their Respective Fields Collaborate to Offer Industry’s Most Compelling Solution for Multi-screen Digital Signage Applications
LOS GATOS, CA – (June 11, 2013) – BrightSign, LLC®, the market leader in digital signage players, today announced that MMD, the name behind Philips Signage Solutions and Philips Monitors worldwide, has chosen BrightSign as a core solution provider of digital signage controllers to power multi-screen applications such as video walls, digital menu boards and other projects that require synchronization across multiple screens. The companies have chosen InfoComm 2013 (June 8-14 in Orlando, FL) as the venue to formally announce their partnership, and to educate show attendees about the very latest techniques to deploy eye-catching, multi-screen digital signage applications in virtually any setting.
“Simple video walls of just a few years ago have given way to a new wave of multi-screen applications that simply weren’t technically feasible until recently,” said Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “Philips signage displays can be tiled together in any configuration – at zero, 45 or 90 degrees – creating near-limitless possibilities for creative installations that engage and attract patrons in restaurants, offices, museums and other public settings.”
Both BrightSign and Philips Signage Solutions will host educational workshops in their respective booths on Wednesday, June 12 through Friday, June 14. At 1:30pm each day, Philips Signage Solutions will host BrightSign workshops in its booth ( #1743) to educate attendees about the many multi-screen applications made possible with the combination of the company’s new Philips VL Series commercial-grade LED displays and BrightSign’s new XD digital signage players (register at http://philipsbrightsignworkshop.eventbrite.com/). BrigthSign will conclude each of these workshops by giving away a BrightSign XD230 digital signage player to a randomly chosen workshop attendee. Additionally, for those InfoComm attendees who want to dive into exactly “how” it’s done, BrightSign will explain the simple steps for creating multi-screen presentations using BrightSign’s digital signage players and its BrightAuthor software in their daily workshops at 11am and 3pm at its booth #4645 (register at http://brightauthorworkshop.eventbrite.com/). Attendees are encouraged to register in advance or drop by these workshops to see for themselves how to easily and affordably deploy multi-screen installations in a variety of applications.
“BrightSign’s players are the perfect engine to drive our new Philips VL displays,” said Craig Rathbun, managing director at MMD, the name behind Philips Signage Solutions worldwide. “The BrightSign XD players are highly capable and can pass-through whatever Full HD content we send their way. In addition, the company’s BrightAuthor software supports portrait, landscape and even 45-degree orientation, allowing us to mount our displays in striking configurations for added visual impact.”
Philips Signage Solutions will display an impressive video wall in its booth at InfoComm 2013, featuring its newly announced Philips VL displays powered by BrightSign’s XD digital signage players. Installers, integrators and other InfoComm attendees are encouraged to visit Philips’ and BrightSign’s booths (#1743 and #4645, respectively) to see for themselves how the companies are redefining what is possible in multi-screen digital signage applications.
