BrightSign, Flixio Studios, Philips Commercial Signage and Peerless-AV Team Create Entry Signage at DSE 2013
BrightSign, LLC®, the market leader in digital signage players, announced today that it was selected by Digital Signage Expo (DSE) conference management to provide digital signage media players for the show’s entry display that greeted attendees as they entered the tradeshow floor. This is the third consecutive year that BrightSign has partnered with signage industry leaders to power the eye-catching display, further cementing the companies’ longstanding partnership with DSE.
“We’re enthusiastic about continuing our work with DSE, and we were honoured to be selected once again to power this impressive display,” said Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “Each year we strive to create a display that showcases what’s possible with digital signage today, and I believe this year’s installation has raised the bar yet again.”
DSE assembled an all-star team to collaborate on the entry display for this year’s show. Flixio Studios created a bevy of rich content that BrightSign’s market leading solid-state players distributed to 13 Philips displays secured with Peerless-AV mounts. All told, the mosaic-style installation covered an area of approximately 8 feet high by 16 feet wide, suspended 8 feet off the ground by giant columns on either side.
“This installation was to be the focal point of the show, so we were adamant about creating a display that showcased the very latest in digital signage technology,” said Chris Gibbs, president of Atlanta-based ExpoNation, LLC, the producer of Digital Signage Expo. “To that end, we assembled a team of leaders in their respective fields and believe that the final product conveyed the dramatic and exciting nature of DSE while welcoming attendees to this year’s show.”
This year’s DSE installation was visually stunning, offering a modern twist on a traditional video wall. The installation utilised a new generation of Philips Edge-lit LED display technology with 13 displays of 3 different sizes alternating in landscape and portrait orientation. Flixio Studios developed rich content that flowed beautifully across all 13 screens. BrightSign players provided flawless synchronisation, engaging viewers with dynamic motion graphics that both entertained and informed conference attendees.
BrightSign players controlled Ethernet synchronisation of brilliant Full HD content across all 13 screens. Using BrightSign’s free, open-platform BrightAuthor signage management software, the 13 presentations were easily developed and synchronised to create the seamless playback effect. One BrightSign unit acted as the master player and the other 12 acted as clients, linking playback based on the synchronisation commands sent from the master. BrightSign’s media players are purpose-built for digital signage, providing state-of-the-art features and performance via a non-PC, solid-state platform. BrightSign’s solid-state architecture delivers greater reliability at a significantly lower cost than PC-based solutions. BrightSign’s multiple networking options also enable remote content updates, monitoring and management of installations large and small.

BrightSign players are available from the BrightSign store. Models range from $250 – $700. Distributor pricing is available upon request. BrightSign’s BrightAuthor software application runs on all late-model PCs and is included free of charge.
