Wireless iPad Remote Controllers Manage BrightSign Video and Graphic playback.

AVR has developed a product they've named, TheSolution, which wirelessly controls a BrightSign HD1010 interactive digital media player with an iPad or iPod. Using their multi-touch screens, user can select, play, pause, resume and reset videos and graphics on the BrightSign player from virtually anywhere. BrightSign's open platform gives digital sign integrators the opportunity to build such unique applications easily to provide added value and customization for specific applications. Initially designed for and already a proven success at trade shows, the ipad/ipod BrightSign controller solution has helped demonstrate a number of booth displays with rave reviews.
