Signage Platform is designed to simplify the digital signage
deployment process while facilitating the growth of a new application
ecosystem with leading software developers and content providers.
Available on select Samsung large-format displays launching this year,
the Smart Signage Platform is an integrated, open-source platform built
around an embedded media player and software developer kit (SDK).
"Samsung's legacy in commercial display technology, as well as our
leadership in advanced semiconductor solutions, allows us to bring this
unique open platform technology to the digital signage market," said Tod
Pike, senior vice president at Samsung's
Enterprise Business Division. "Samsung's Smart Signage Platform
allows developers to create apps that enable seamless delivery of
dynamic content and messaging. We are already actively engaged with a
number of the leading content developers and look forward to welcoming
more onboard in the coming months."
Collaborative Application Ecosystem
Samsung's new SDK for signage software allows software partners to
develop customized signage applications suitable for an array of
business and user environments. Backed by best-in-breed software
developers and solution providers, including Capital Networks, Four
Winds Interactive, Scala, Signagelive and Wireless Ronin, customers will
have access to signage experts to help create customized solutions.
Samsung's Smart Signage Platform is designed to provide a simpler path
to deployment for organizations that are looking to transition from
static signage to dynamic digital displays.
As a cloud-based solution, the Smrt Signage Platform has the ability to
locally or remotely send content from a web server directly to a
display. This enables software providers to distribute software updates
and changes directly to displays that are connected to the platform,
offering customers with a quick and efficient solution for keeping
content fresh and targeted for the unique needs of their end users.
Comprehensive, Cost-Effective Solution for
The Samsung Smart Signage Platform provides a simple, easy-to-use
interface, eliminating complicated set-up and installation processes.
Powered by a System on Chip (SoC) semiconductor and featuring a
dual-core CPU, full codec video processor and either 4GB or 8GB of
storage depending on the model, Samsung's Smart Signage Platform
includes an embedded, high-performance media player which allows users
to play back content without the need for a separate PC or set-back box.
By eliminating the need for external devices, the Samsung Smart Signage
Platform ensures clean and simple installation and operational
processes, saving both time and money. The technology also supports open
pluggable standard (OPS) platforms.
The Smart Signage Platform is compatible with the 2013 lines of the
following Samsung digital signage products:
ME - C Series - these ultra slim, lightweight displays provide
increased energy savings of 35% or more over CCFL backlit displays,
while a thin chassis and narrow bezel help simplify installation and
provide a more impactful message.
PE - C Series - a line of ultra-slim large format displays ideal for
high-traffic areas that require 24/7 reliability, including
commercial, public and corporate environments. These displays feature
LED backlighting for brighter, more colorful images and anti-glare
technology that offers a sharp picture, even in brightly lit indoor
MD - C Series - ideal for high-traffic areas, including commercial,
public and corporate environments, the design elements of these
displays facilitate enhanced performance with the added benefit of
cost-savings. At just 19mm, a narrow bezel allows audiences to focus
