BrightSign announced today that OSM Solutions has launched a new line of do-it-yourself digital menu board systems featuring BrightSign network-enabled HD210 digital signage players.
Available online at MenuBoardsToGo.com, the turnkey systems are shipped pre-configured and loaded with the customer's content so there's no software learning curve, no programming of the SDHC card, nothing to learn about networking or central servers and no compatibility issues. The high-definition menu boards are ready to use as soon as they're plugged in, according to BrightSign, which makes them a compelling menu board solution for QSRs (quick service restaurants), cafes, coffee houses, bakeries, cafeterias or any counter-service business, the company said.
To celebrate the launch, MenuBoardsToGo is offering a 15 percent discount on all self-install kits for the month of August.
The new digital menu board kits are complete, all-in-one solutions that include a BrightSign solid-state HD210 networked media player; an LG commercial LCD monitor with a choice of screen sizes ranging from 42- to 65-inches; an LCD mounting bracket; an HDMI cable; and an SDHC card. With the August 15 percent discount, a $1,599 kit that includes a 42-inch monitor will only cost $1,359 — a savings of nearly $240.
"Clearly, this ready-to-use out-of-the-box approach is an idea whose time has come. It will appeal to the growing number of people in the food service industry who want to display eye-catching messages that are both timely and informative but, until now, have considered the deployment and management of digital menu boards as too technical and too costly," said BrightSign CEO Jeff Hastings.
