BrightSign Unveils Big Plans for DSE 2017

Company’s Media Players to Power Digital Experiences Throughout the Show

LOS GATOS, CA – (March 27, 2017) – BrightSign, LLC®, the global market leader in digital signage media players, today outlined its plans for the upcoming Digital Signage Expo (DSE), which takes place in Las Vegas, NV on March 29th and 30th. The company’s players will power signage not just in its own booth, but also in partner booths as well as key focal points on the show floor. Additionally, BrightSign and TappTek will host a daily happy hour, reserved for early bird visitors to its booth each morning.

BrightSign Behind the Scenes

This is the sixth year BrightSign’s media players will power the DSE entryway – an impressive installation of four columns encased in a total of 18 48-inch Samsung displays. Peerless supplied the mounts and OpenEye Global generated the eye-catching content that will inform attendees as they enter and exit the show floor. Additionally, BrightSign’s players will be hard at work behind the scenes, feeding content to displays in booths all over the show floor including NEC, Philips, Peerless, Zynchro, Reach, Reflect Systems, Wovenmedia, Four Winds Interactive, GDS and every single display in the Chief booth.

BrightSign, Beacons and Beer!

The first 100 people to stop by BrightSign’s booth each day of the show will receive an exclusive invitation to return to the booth later in the day for one of the most unique beer pours they’ve ever experienced. TappTek “tapped” BrightSign to enable media distribution via its new Smart Tap, an innovative way for bar owners to capture tap-pull data in real time, engage patrons via their mobile devices, and display entertaining & informative content on the bar’s overhead displays. Happy hour attendees will get a sneak peek at TappTek’s new technology and witness for themselves one of the most significant innovations to hit the bar industry since Prohibition.

Booth Demos

At BrightSign’s booth #419, the company will demonstrate its latest solutions, including BrightSign’s first player to support the Intel® Open Pluggable Specification (OPS, and the new BrightSign Built-in Digital Signage Module (BrightSign DSM). Additionally, BrightSign will showcase AutoWall™ a new solution for video walls using HTML5 content, IP streaming from a BrightSign player to BrightSign end-points, and of course the new Series 3 players.

Larger Than Life Advertising

BrightSign will be visible this DSE well beyond the show floor. The company recently teamed up with Las Vegas-based creative agency Socialure for some high-impact advertising on the world’s largest LED digital screen. Measuring 65 feet tall by 320 feet wide, the Harmon Corner screen sits high above Walgreens and McDonald’s at the intersection of Harmon Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. The Socialure/BrightSign content will display on the screen the week of the show, as well as in hardcopy magazines published by Greenspun Media Group.

Beverage Alcohol Gets a LOT Smarter.

Thanks to James Fellowes, Chief Commercial Officer & Global Beer Lead at The IWSR, for the shout out in his recent LinkedIn article

"Several companies have introduced innovations to draught systems that provide businesses with helpful analytics. TAPP is a cloud-based battery-powered smart tap handle that can track beer sales in real-time and report the timestamped data back to beermakers. The system also has options for consumer interaction, either through their smartphones or through screens in the bars."

8 Times the Food and Beverage Industry Went Extremely High-Tech

Thanks to Nicolette Emmino of Electronics 360 for including TAPPTEK in this list of innovative companies. 

"TAPP Technologies is a start-up company that has unveiled a smart beer-tap handle technology that can capture and send data to enhance customer experience and provide usable data for beer companies and bar owners. TAPPTEK captures real-time information on location, date, and time via our proprietary platform each time a beer tap is pulled. Valuable data is used to enhance the customer experience, the bar owners operations and beer company's engagement. The device will roll out for less than $500 and weighs less than an average smartphone. The device contains an accelerometer, power supply, and is Bluetooth enabled."
