Signagelive for BrightSIgn is used for delivering interactive kiosk applications enabling passive scheduled digital signage content to switch to an interactive application when touched.
How is this best achieved?
We recommend using Signagelive for BrightSign players and BrightSign Built-in Displays for interactive kiosk applications.
The reasons are:
- The Signagelive for BrightSign application can be configured to operate in ‘Kiosk Mode’. This enables the application to receive and play schedule content (the attract content) and when the display is touched the application will switch to an alternative piece of content, which is typically an HTML5 based web application.
- The HTML5 based web application can be remotely hosted (on a website) or can be packaged and delivered via Signagelive to work offline on the media player.
- The Signagelive for BrightSign application can be configured so that when the screen has not been interacted with for a user-defined period of time playback of the scheduled content resumes.
- All media playback and interactions are captured and reported in the Signagelive Proof of Play module.
What hardware do you recommend for Kiosk Applications?
We recommend any BrightSign player or BrightSign Built-in Display that is built to withstand the rigours of the environment it is installed in.
Bluefin has developed a range of BrightSign Built-in Displays that are purpose-built for digital signage and kiosk use in commercial environments. The product range consists of 10” to 32” open-chassis and finished enclosed units that include the display and the BrightSign HS123 module providing an ‘all in one’ solution.
What Signagelive licence is required?
A Standard Signagelive Licence is required.
When is this available?
We have completed software development and the updated BrightSign app including the kiosk feature is currently undergoing extensive testing. The public release is planned for October 2018 but if you are interested in testing the solution for an upcoming project, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
