Carousel Digital Signage launches software update with BrightSign integration
Carousel Digital Signage, a division of Tightrope Media Systems, recently launched its 7.3 software release for enterprise grade digital signage. The update improves integration with BrightSign media players and Apple TV, according to a press release.
The software can automatically configure all BrightSign players, removing the need to write SD cards for each player. It also enables remote adjustment of settings and firmware updates as well as secure storage of settings on the server.
The software also includes a tvOS app to help streamline the configuration and deployment of Apple TV devices as digital signage media players. It can also manually disable air play to display important messages such as weather updates or security bulletins, according to the release.
"We're rolling out new automated features to centralize player configurations, firmware updates and network management tasks, while also driving closer collaboration between IT departments and AV integrators to streamline network and player maintenance," Eric Henry, president, Carousel Digital Signage, said in the release. "The overarching goal is to centralize as many of these jobs as possible to the desktop or mobile device, and remove the expense of rolling trucks site to site to install and maintain each player on the network."
