THE BRIGHT SIDE OF SIGNAGE
®
“We always specify BrightSign players, especially for very large showcase installations,
because of their stability and the fantastic support we receive from the BrightSign
team. One feature in particular, the video overlays, was the world’s first on BrightSign
players. These overlays are an essential part of the experience, adding a strong
educational element to an exciting encounter.”
Abdul Bakhrani, CEO, DigiComm
“We pushed for Costa Coffee to adopt the BrightSign platform as it is so intuitive,
user-friendly and stable. BrightSign came through the exceptionally thorough trial
stage with flying colours. With the full roll-out, BrightAuthor continues to provide a
flexible and easy to use platform for managing and scheduling content playback in
each store.”
Terry Borden, Managing Director, Mood GCC
“BrightSign’s players are extremely capable and they can handle anything we throw
at them – there’s really nothing we can’t accomplish on the BrightSign platform.
In the case of Oil Can Henry’s, we used a single player to decode two video feeds
and simulate an additional two video feeds with MJPEG via IP, while simultaneously
managing database integration and interactive content on the touchscreens.”
Ray Heiser, president and CEO, c3ms Media
