BroadSign Digital Signage Software
BroadSign Digital Signage Software is the most advanced and complete Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for managing digital signage networks. It allows network operators to become more efficient, save money and reduce errors due to its sophisticated, rules-based campaign automation.
It is composed of three main modules and many additional features.
Playing it smart
BroadSign Player software transforms almost any commodity PC running Windows or Linux into an intelligent media player, displaying content across any number of screens. Content and schedules are uploaded to the Player using the BroadSign Administrator and via the BroadSign Cloud.
- Play all industry standard content formats in broadcast quality
- Depend on the Player’s ability to automatically create a playlist (content loop) for each screen according to network policies
- Rely on the Player’s resilience to issues related to content, connectivity or display health
- Drive down your hardware costs by running the Player on commodity PC hardware and operating systems
- Develop your own content add-ons with BroadSign’s rich player-side API which includes triggers, toggles and web content
Your digital signage control room
BroadSign Administrator is the desktop component of BroadSign Digital Signage Software. It features an intuitive interface enabling operators to remotely operate digital signage networks of any size. You can have a copy of BroadSign Administrator for each member of your staff at no additional charge.
- Monetize your network with BroadSign’s easy-to-use ad sales and inventory management functions
- Combine complex and simple campaigns into automatically targeted playlists with very little effort
- Target campaigns using consumer profile, geography, or any other criteria
- Monitor performance via real-time network health reports
- Establish monitoring thresholds and error-handling policies enabling the Player to self-heal
- Perform quality assurance on all aspects of playback with BroadSign’s rich previewing and verification tool
- Verify content playback on any screen
- Manage your vast content library, but let BroadSign take care of distributing new and eliminating outdated content.
The cloud has clear benefits
BroadSign Cloud is a SaaS infrastructure that manages communication between BroadSign Administrator and BroadSign Players.
The SaaS model significantly reduces downtime, operational overhead, initial deployment costs, and time to market.
- Depend on BroadSign’s highly redundant server architecture.
- Eliminate the need to manage a central datacenter and avoid the associated installation and IT costs
- Deploy 10,000 players tomorrow – BroadSign’s infrastructure is designed to allow rapid and easy growth
BroadSign Edge Server
A little local pocket cloud
BroadSign Edge Servers are content caching server software that can optimize how a group of BroadSign Players or other BroadSign Edge Servers obtain their content from the BroadSign Cloud. Downloading files locally from an Edge Server is much quicker than over the Internet.
- Centralizes downloads through one computer
- Downloads content only once
- Efficiently distributes content to Players – the Edge Server only requests content from the BroadSign Server if it is not already present in its document folder
- Minimizes bandwidth for networks with multiple Players
- Adapts to a wide variety of CDN configurations
- Runs on any commodity PC, including the same PC to which the BroadSign Player software is installed
BroadSign Add-ons extend functionality beyond the Digital Signage Software platform. They are purpose-built to suit a variety of needs.
Content creation made easy
BroadSign Creator is an easy-to-use Web-based tool that allows you to build content from ready-made templates. It enables small networks or local operators within large networks to easily create content and play it back on their network segments.
- Enable local managers to produce and run mini-campaigns without affecting global network schedules
- Maximize profitability of retail locations by allowing branches to quickly create pertinent messages in reaction to local conditions using ready-made templates
