Series 5 Is Alive! — AV.technology
BrightSign expands Series 5 product family with new XD5 media players.
BrightSign, a global market leader in digital signage media players, today unveiled the company’s new XD5 media players, which join the previously announced XC5 players to round out the first wave of Series 5 media players expected to ship in Q4 of this year.
“Our family of Series 5 media players will represent our most complete and, by far, the most powerful family of media players BrightSign has ever offered,” said BrightSign CEO Jeff Hastings. “As we prepare to ship all four of our XC5 and XD5 models in the near future, we’re confident that these new media players will serve virtually any use case for the most demanding 4K and even 8K content applications.”
BrightSign’s new XD5 models join the XC2055 and XC4055 media players, which were announced prior to this year’s InfoComm show in Las Vegas. These previously announced models offer the company’s most powerful HTML5/graphics engine to-date, with graphics performance improvement of up to 10X compared to their predecessors. Both XC5 models support 8K output — one model offering dual HDMI-out (up to two 4K or one 8K) and the other offering quad HDMI-out (up to four 4K or one 8K).
All of BrightSign’s media players feature BrightSign OS 8, the company’s proprietary operating system purpose-built for digital signage. BrightSign OS 8 uses modern web-based technology to cloud-connect all BrightSign players, delivering real-time access and control at no additional charge. BrightSign continually offers updates for all products within its digital signage ecosystem for unrivalled reliability, the latest services, and new leading-edge features to ensure customers are never stuck with a product that isn’t keeping pace with current market demands.
