Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Cilutions has added Exterity world-class video IP streaming to its range of ultra-reliable but affordable digital signage solutions.
Exterity AvediaPlayer Receivers are now fully integrated with Cilutions Digital Media Bridge (DMB) software suite; letting organizations that already use Exterity for IP streaming seamlessly add powerful new digital signage capabilities. Unlike most digital signage offerings, the combined Cilutions and Exterity products offer end-to-end fully encrypted video playback.
Using Cilutions DMB, HD video content can be played on any digital signage screen connected to an Exterity Receiver. By adding Cilutions DMB Screen Builder software to their desktops, digital signage network administrators can use advanced content creation, scheduling and targeting features to manage groups of screens based on audience profiles or locations, or control content scheduling down to individual displays.
In addition to integrating seamlessly within an Exterity IPTV system, Exterity provisioned end-points can be combined with Cilutions software to offer a stand-alone digital signage set-top box that can also be used across networks where video streaming is not required.
SINGLE, FLEXIBLE SOLUTION
This blended solution means high quality video can be decoded, transcoded and distributed over local area networks, enabling everything from scheduled digital signage programming to rich Video on Demand (VoD) interactive screens.
“This creates a very flexible platform that can be implemented easily by organizations, without adding any new hardware,” explained William Stanton, Director of Business Development for Cilutions.
“Offering a single solution for video and signage is much more efficient and cost-effective, and means that our customers only have to learn one system,” added Colin Farquhar, Exterity CEO. “Talking to our end users, systems integrators and partners, we know that video is an integral part of digital signage in addition to data and graphics, so it made sense to have a single integrated solution.”
Based in the Washington, DC area, Cilutions builds its digital signage solution around ultra-reliable, solid-state media playback devices that have been designed to operate flawlessly for years.
“No moving parts, great engineering inside and tough enclosures mean our customers can put these units out in harsh environments, like fast food outlets and busy retail spaces, without worrying about their ability to handle all the dust and grime that will quickly choke regular PCs,” explained Stanton.
In addition to their management and content distribution software platforms, Cilutions has two core elements to its Digital Media Bridge software suite:
DMB Media Player – digital signage, video-on-demand and digital menu board software player
DMB Screen Builder – digital signage, video-on-demand and digital menu board screen authoring application
“Digital signage is a very competitive business, and we strongly believe blending a world-class IP streaming solution with DMB sets Cilutions apart from the pack,” concluded Stanton.
