news A Cloud Management Platform for Digital Signage Networks BrightSign LLC has announced the new BSN.cloud – a robust player-management platform driven by BrightSign OS 8.0 – the commercial-grade operating system purpose-built for digital signage. Within the Control Cloud level, the B-Deploy feature enables complete configuration of players remotely, dramatically reducing install times and making player setup or provisioning an almost automatic process. Large-scale rollouts are greatly simplified via new options for automat- ically setting up large groups of players simultaneously. And for small-scale rollouts, a new on-screen setup process utilises QR codes for easy player setup via mobile phone. The Control Cloud also includes access to view real-time health information of the player and the ability to change configurations and deploy operating system updates in real-time without having to ever physically interact with the player. Appspace, Carousel Digital Signage, Creative Realities, Diversified, Four Winds Interactive, Mvix, Reflect Systems and Sig- nagelive are just a few of our partners in the process of using the BSN.cloud APIs to integrate their software with the BSN. cloud management platform. Regardless of the software chosen for a project, all BrightSign players can connect – at no charge – to BSN.cloud and take advan- tage of all the Control Cloud services described above. The other two clouds within BSN. cloud are the Management Cloud and the Content Cloud. The Management Cloud is a data-driven cloud service that delivers a complete set of digital signage network management tools to the end-user. It collects and stores data about performance measures that are important to network managers. 8 KIOSK solutions Just the ticket for India’s newest metro Travellers on India’s newest Metro system, in the Northern city of Lucknow, are buying travel tokens through Zytronic projected capacitive touch sensors.
