France's Largest Retail Digital Signage Network

FNAC, France’s largest retail chain of personal computers, books and music, added an expansive digital signage network as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide their customers with an enhanced shopping experience. A network of 1,500+ BrightSign controllers are the vanguard of a project delivering coordinated content and stellar playback quality to some 3,000 displays at 80 of FNAC’s retail stores strategically located throughout France. At the project’s completion, as many as 4,000 BrightSign units will be installed at FNAC outlets across nine European countries.

With its extremely reliable and feature-rich solid-state media players, BrightSign has reached a milestone in the digital signage industry as it allows system integrators to offer powerful and cost- effective digital sign solutions to retailers as never before.
