LOS GATOS, CA – (February 1, 2017): BrightSign, the global market leader in digital signage media players, and ONELAN, a global leader in digital visual communications, today announced integration between all BrightSign Series 3 and 2 players and the ONELAN CMS 3.0, as part of both companies’ ongoing commitment to provide scalable enterprise-level solutions to customers across multiple platforms.
With the addition of the BrightSign’s market leading player lineup, customers will have even more flexibility to select the right player and display for their budget and needs. The ONELAN CMS supports both the latest and legacy player versions so companies with existing BrightSign networks can also take advantage of ONELAN’s Enterprise CMS.
The new integration gives BrightSign players access to the enterprise features of the ONELAN CMS, including management and control from a central location.
With several different hosting solutions, ONELAN’s CMS offers the customer flexibility with either on-premise or cloud hosting. The CMS is scalable to 50,000+ players and can be added to over time to ensure the demands of a growing network can be met.
Perfect for large retail networks, the ONELAN CMS partnered with BrightSign players uses a ‘Store and Forward’ content delivery mechanism. This delivery method ensures that all BrightSign players will play content even if Internet connection is lost. Within a retail network requiring local content differentiation, meta data tagging can be used to hyper localize based on any number of different tags. This allows local content to be delivered from a central location, thus saving on admin and IT maintenance costs required to control large networks with local content differences.
Continued uptime is critical for maintaining a network within a public facing retailer or QSR. The ONELAN CMS includes the ability to fully maintain, monitor and remotely configure all players. This player management facility ensures central control over content distribution and player health, and results in maximum network uptime. With the use of sophisticated role-based permissions within the CMS, content can be managed and approved by the appropriate users and ensures enterprise level workflow management.
Jeremy Copp, ONELAN CEO commented: “We’re delighted to be expanding our reach into the Retail and QSR markets by bringing ONELAN’s Enterprise CMS and BrightSign players to market together ultimately giving more choice and flexibility to our customers.”
Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO, added, “Our partnership with ONELAN is a further example of BrightSign’s collaboration with leading CMS providers. ONELAN and BrightSign are committed to supporting customers with diverse applications and needs, and share a commitment to delivering content with flawless reliability. We are delighted to work with ONELAN to deliver on that commitment.”
ONELAN will be showcasing its CMS running on BrightSign Series 3 players at Integrated Systems Europe 2017, from February 7th to 10th at the RAI, Amsterdam on stand 8-F275.
