Digital signage companies CoolSign and BrightSign have broadened options for digital signage customers by completing integration of BrightSign's low-cost, non-PC networked media players into the CoolSign network architecture, company officials announced. Customers can now apply the management features of CoolSign's software platform to BrightSign's solid-state digital signage players.

"This solution delivers the best of both worlds," said Lou Giacalone Jr., president and founder of CoolSign, in a statement. "Our customers can tap into the low-cost and reliability of a set-top box-like device, but can also take full advantage of our sophisticated software suite and efficient user experience. We believe these types of appliances, with their lower TCO, will play a significant role in networks moving forward."

"BrightSign's compatibility with CoolSign networks offers an affordable entry point to users, while delivering a highly reliable solution with its non-PC platform," added Jeff Hastings, BrightSign's CEO, in a statement.

Via the BrightSign Bridge, the HD210 and HD1010 models can now connect into CoolSign networks, and can be controlled like any PC running CoolSign's player software. The HD210 model is capable of playing out video at resolutions up to 1080p. The HD1010 adds support for interactivity as well as expansion modules. Both units have no moving parts and are compact: 6.6 x 5.9x 1.2 inches.
