Signagelive, a global provider of cloud-powered digital signage solutions, has partnered with U.S.-based custom computer manufacturer Seneca to deliver bundled digital signage solutions at an affordable price point, according to a company announcement.
"Seneca is the ideal organization to partner with to create turnkey integrated solutions for Signagelive," said Raffi Vartian, COO of Signagelive. "Their expertise further allows us to bring an inexpensive, yet powerful product, backed by full warranty and support, to the signage marketplace."
Signagelive's Display Edition products are ready for purchase immediately by end-user customers and resellers alike, the company said. The first bundled product, priced at $999, includes a three-year Display Edition Signagelive license, a Seneca X4-525 media player and a three-year warranty. End-users can contact Signagelive directly and integrators can contact Seneca to enlist in their reseller program.
"We are excited Signagelive chose Seneca to partner on integrated turnkey solutions. The bundled product aligns with our strategy to simplify technology in the visual solutions marketplace," said Scott Falso, director of market development at Seneca.
The bundled solution features an Intel-powered Windows 7 embedded media player with 2GB of memory and 320GB of internal storage, preinstalled with Signagelive Display Edition software. Customers simply order the bundle, unpack the media player, plug it in and enter the six-digit activation code into Signagelive, activating the three-year license. Should hardware replacement be necessary, customers can deactivate the existing media player, activate the replacement and it will download and display the appropriate content.
The companies collaborated on optimizing the X4-525 media player; extensive testing was done to ensure the bundled product stood up to the rigors of long-term deployments and is capable of anything the Display Edition was designed for, including multizone content, video walls, RSS tickers, live video via IPTV and more, the announcement said.
