Signagelive announces commercial support for Samsung’s new SSSP 4.0 Tizen powered displays 


Signagelive for SSSP 4.0 builds upon existing Signagelive SSSP capabilities to deliver an improved customer experience

Signagelive, global providers of a cloud-based digital signage technology platform, has successfully migrated its proven media player software to Samsung’s fourth-generation Smart Signage Platform (SSSP V4.0) powered by Tizen OS.

Samsung’s Tizen powered displays will be commercially available to partners, resellers and end users from mid-September 2016 and Signagelive will be fully compatible with the new platform from day one.

Signagelive have worked closely with Samsung HQ since late 2012 prior to the launch of the original Smart Signage Platform (SSSP) in 2013 and were one of the first technology partners to develop an off-the-shelf offering for the SSSP and as consequence, all Samsung Smart Displays are able to run Signagelive’s software as standard.

Continuing the close technical relationship fostered over the last 4 years between the two companies, Signagelive have been able to quickly migrate their existing SSSP application to the new Tizen powered displays to ensure customers are able to continue to deploy solutions as soon as the new products become globally available.

The SSSP V4.0 platform features an upgraded graphics engine, featuring a 3x increase in animation performance over previous SSSP models, Further closing the ever decreasing gap between SoC and PC based media players.

As with all Signagelive SSSP media players, this latest release comprises an extensive range of core features such as; playback of up to 2 concurrent full HD videos, seamless video playlists, multi-zone layouts, Media RSS for syndication of content from our content partners, transparent image layering, screen on /off control, automated remote application updates and automated remote firmware updates. Advanced features such as support for the forthcoming Signagelive Widget Development Framework and Signagelive Web Triggers enabling real time triggering of content via our APIs will be compatible with the latest release.

Signagelive was also the first company to achieve platinum partner status under the Samsung technology partner programme as a result of its continual support of the SSSP and for securing a large number of high-profile customers including the Lithuanian Post Office, Maceys Convenience Store, and Vodafone Hutchinson Australia, who have purchased more than 1,000 SSSP licenses to date.

“Signagelive has a strong relationship with Samsung’s technical team and from the outset they have always been responsive to our development requirements,”

comments Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive.

“Their outstanding support over the last four years has enabled Signagelive to become one of the top five digital signage technology providers globally with over 600 networks globally using Signagelive for Samsung SSP Displays. The new Tizen platform is highly flexible and we will strive to ensure we continue to provide the same levels of advanced functionality for existing SSSP users.”

Marc Benson, CTO of Signagelive concludes

“With SSSP V4 Samsung have significantly improved the development process and environment which our customers will be able to directly benefit from as we can release quicker and with the improved support for a wider range of HTML5 APIs over previous iterations of the SSSP platform will allow us, our content partners and customers to push the boundaries of what is considered possible on SoC players”
