Haivision announced on Monday, June 11 the release of CoolSign 5.0, the latest version of its digital signage system. CoolSign 5.0 brings together digital signage with IP video with the goal of allowing clients to deliver combined rich media and live broadcasts across campuses and to remote signage players and mobile devices globally.
By integrating the secure IP video distribution technology of Haivision’s Furnace within the CoolSign player, CoolSign incorporates broadcast content without copy risk — a critical requirement of any content provider. Encrypted live HD channels can be displayed as a region or full screen on any player. The CoolSign player can also access Internet-based RTMP streams, assuring that even over a global network, any player can access live HD content.
Haivision’s KulaByte Internet media streaming solutions are intended to allow signage content to be delivered as high-quality adaptive bit rate HD streams to any desktop, laptop, or mobile device. With Haivision’s Furnace system, signage content can be made available as channels accessible by all desktops within the context of the user’s channel experience, or to low-cost set-top boxes throughout a facility.
CoolSign 5.0 will be released this fall. More information about Haivision is available at www.haivision.com.
