BrightSign Joins TMM Communication in Celebrating Golden Screen Award for France’s Largest Retail Digital Signage Network

80 FNAC Stores Use 1,500 BrightSign Networked Controllers to Drive Over 3,000 Displays

BrightSign, a worldwide leader in standalone and networked controllers for digital signage applications, congratulated its French distributor/integrator TMM Communication today on being awarded the 2010 Golden Screen Award (Ecrans d’Or) for the best digital signage installation in the retail category by the French Digital Signage Association, APCAD. TMM received the award for its FNAC installation, which uses 1,500 BrightSign networked sign controllers to drive more than 3,000 displays at 80 FNAC retail stores throughout France. FNAC is an international entertainment retail chain and the one of the largest retailers of its kind in France.

TMM’s BrightSign project was among 34 entries competing for the Golden Screen Awards in the Retail, Corporate and Creative Content categories and was selected by a jury of six independent experts. More than 500 attended the presentation of trophies, which took place last month at the Casino de Paris Theatre in Paris

The digital signage solution TMM designed for FNAC uses BrightSign players with a solid-state platform to deliver full-HD video and image-quality displays at all 80 retail stores. The solid-state design provides higher reliability, supports networking for remote updates and is significantly more affordable than PC-based solutions, both on unit pricing and network service pricing.

To provide simple, easy updates on a daily basis, all of the BrightSign players are networked and managed from FNAC’s head office using BrightSign Network and the interface software TMM specifically designed for FNAC.
TMM is continuing with a number of projects for the retailer. At the completion of the projects, 2,000-3,000 BrightSign units will have been installed in FNAC stores, including outlets outside of France.
