Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Great Intro to Digital Signage Product
Pros: Very easy to use. Reliable. Seems well built. Easy to implement in existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. Didn't have to run data lines in concrete walls (deployed in cafeterias around school district), only had to provide power. Easy to use scheduling software with many display/output options. Free setup software & firmware updates!
Cons: -Wi-Fi uplink for updating scheduling/digital signage is a bit slow (~10mbps).

-Local USB keyboard device setup is both a pro & con, more secure, but more time consuming when performing initial device setup on many devices.
Other Thoughts: Great product for first time digital signage on a budget. Easy deployment. I see no reason why I'd put in a more expensive system for simple digital signage.

Project cost: 42" commercial display wall mounted with this product cost <$1100/per installation (including electrical). No recurring costs, unless something breaks...

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Amazing product! Horrible customer service!!
Pros: These units are very reliable.

The ability to use the Lan, RS232, GPIO, and USB
ports for I/O is wonderful.

Any crazy idea I had. Their units made it work.
Cons: This wasn’t a con until recently. Their customer service for repairs and other questions is by far the worst I have encountered yet. Working in the AV industry there are a lot if things I don’t know. BrightSign USED to be one of them companies that I could call up and someone would talk me through a issue. Well those days are long gone. Now the other day I needed to send a unit in for repair (something I’ve only had to do once before) so I called their number and asked to speak to someone. I usually call in repairs since it’s easier to call then to email for days back and forth trying to just ship something out for repair. The operator was very nice and forwarded me to someone. I’m not sure of his name anymore but he explained that they no longer have phone support unless I pay for it. (Now it this point I’m kind of upset I just want to repair my unit so I can get the exhibits I’m responsible for back up and running.) I tell him that the support I received from bright sign in the past is the reason I push so hard for this units at work. We have over 20 some of them in one building alone. His response was that the email system was quite good and that they would take care of me. I told him I just needed 10 minutes of someone’s time to get them RMA-ed. (I RMA stuff all the time it doesn’t take long at all) He basically tells me to get lost after that. So I desided to use the email system. It has been 14 days and I still have the units on my desk with no rma. I email once a day and sometimes I get back that someone will set me up but guess what I never hear from that someone.
Other Thoughts: In my line of work relabilty and custor service are key. And from this past experence i will most likely nolonger push for Brightsign units. Ill try outher compinies to see how their units work.

also it should be noted that I had perched my unit’s elsewise as I didn’t know Newegg sold them at the time.

Categories > Digital Signage Media Players > BrightSign > Brightsign HD120 Full HD 1080p Basic Interactive Digital Signage Player

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works Perfect
Pros: Compact enough to mount in back of a 40in LED. Installed a video loop that's on 24/7 with no problems. I copied my video on a sd class 4 memory card with no issues continuously running, and the setup was easy.
Cons: none so far....
Other Thoughts: I have a cheaper one by another company, and it doesn't run as smooth, and won't play as many formats.

Categories > Digital Signage Media Players > BrightSign > Brightsign HD220 Full HD 1080p Networked Interactive Digital Signage Player

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Perfect for what I needed.
Pros: Pro construction, small body, no unnecessary features, simple to operate once set up.
Cons: Authoring software is PC only.
Other Thoughts: I bought three of these to be able to playback synchronized videos in art gallery/museum settings. Totally satisfied. However, the authoring software to create playlists is PC only. Also, you'll probably want to get a router to go with your players.

Categories > Digital Signage Media Players > BrightSign > BrightSign Solid State Digital Sign Controller HD210

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 It just works!
Pros: No windows updates, no popups, no ridiculous configuration nightmare, extended documentation, no secrets.
Cons: BrightAuthor software could use a little polishing.
Other Thoughts: Simple networking using IIS server required addition of MIME types for "."=Application/Octet-Stream and .brs=text/plain.
