LOS GATOS, CA – (January 31, 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 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 the Internet connection is lost. Within a retail
network requiring local content differentiation, metadata 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 rolebased
permissions within the CMS, content can be managed and approved by the appropriate
users and ensures enterprise-level workflow management.
Jeremy Copp, ONELAN’s 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
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.
