Integrated IP Video and Digital Signage Solutions With Furnace™ and CoolSign™
Haivision brings together digital signage and live IP video with its award-winning CoolSign™ digital signage solution and its acclaimed Furnace™ IP video distribution system. Deployed in stadiums, universities, and corporate and retail facilities around the world, CoolSign provides the simplest infrastructure for scalable, data driven, enterprise-grade digital signage. Integrated with Haivision’s Furnace IP video system, CoolSign is the only signage platform for distributing live broadcast feeds securely within a facility thus adhering to the requirements of content providers.
CoolSign™ 5.0 — New Features:
Secure IP Video Distribution — Integration With Haivision’s Furnace™ IP Video Platform
CoolSign™ 5.0 now supports encrypted HD video streams as delivered by the Furnace™ IP video system. Furnace is broadly adopted for delivering secure video over multicast within an enterprise or across a campus. Security (content protection) is essential when distributing live broadcast because it is a requirement of any content provider. Whether within a region or full screen, CoolSign is now the only digital signage system that supports encrypted multicast IP video streams.
Simplified Web Interface — Bringing Signage Control and Workflows to Any User
Addressing the needs of local content contribution and control, CoolSign™ 5.0 includes a new cross-platform user interface enabling additional content workflows within an organization. For the receptionist that needs to quickly put up welcome screens, for the floor manager broadcasting a quality alert, or for the store manager to insert store specific content using a template, CoolSign’s new user interface is accessible in browsers on PCs, tablets, and mobile devices. Local user content can be managed according to rule sets established by the signage system administrator.
Furnace™ — Secure IP Video Distribution System
Haivision’s Furnace™ IP video distribution system provides an end-to-end solution for enterprise IPTV. Supporting stream encryption from the source encoder to all InStream™ zero-install cross-platform players, Stingray™ set-top boxes, and CoolSign™ digital signage players, the Furnace allows any facility or campus to distribute live broadcast video that requires content protection. The Furnace also provides a high level of control to live streams with administrators able to assign access rights at a device and user level.
Haivision Speaking Sessions at DSE
Implementing and Managing a Successful Campus-Wide Digital Signage Network
Digital signage networks at universities continue to gain momentum and have become a powerful communications tool for educating students and faculty, promoting school activities in order to maximize engagement, and serving as emergency alert systems across departments and campuses. This session will examine the University of British Columbia’s digital signage deployment, which started as a greener, less wasteful, and more engaging replacement for table tents and paper fliers and has grown into a centralized, enterprise-wide digital signage solution.
9:30 a.m.– 10:00 a.m.
Speakers: Wilson Lo, senior programmer analyst, University of British Columbia and Bill Taylor, director of digital signage, Haivision
How the Convergence of Digital Signage and IPTV Can Attract Fans and Increase Revenue at Sports Venues
Sports entertainment is big business. Whether college or professional sports, there is stiff competition for fans’ attention — and dollars. Digital signage and IPTV systems deployed throughout a stadium or arena can give these large venues a competitive edge. In this session, Haivision will discuss how the University of Oregon used digital signage to keep fans engaged in games while enticing them to exit the main arena to make purchases and enjoy the clubrooms in its new, state-of-the art basketball arena.
2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
