ViewSonic Partners Digbil
TAIPEI, TAIWAN – ViewSonic and digbil, the digital signage brand under American Megatrends (AMI), announce today their partnership to bring best in class digital signage solutions around the world.
For too long the digital signage industry has been highly fragmented. “Customers have to purchase hardware from one vendor, software from another vendor and are still left without professional content creation or installation,” said Craig Scott, Director of Business Development at digbil. The result is confused, unsatisfied customers who end up paying a premium for a sub-optimal solution.
Working together, the companies have created a series of hardware and software solutions aimed at simplifying both deployment and management of digital signage networks. These innovations enable customers to expand their networks from one sign, to tens of thousands, quickly and without expensive hardware.
“ViewSonic’s 26 years of experience in display technology coupled with their knowledge of customer needs and global resources are critical components when building a global digital signage network that is reliable, secure and scalable,” added Scott.
“We’ve been searching quite sometime for the right digital signage software to work with. We were looking for something that not only could trump traditional client-server models, but would fit to our vision and strategy” mentioned Bonny Cheng, General Manager of ViewSonic’s Display Business Unit.
ViewSonic and digbil aim to launch their digital signage solution in BRIC nations, specifically catering to the hospitality and entertainment industries.
“digbil’s scalable software is exactly what was needed to enable this market segment to more effectively enter the age of digital signage,” added Cheng.
ViewSonic’s complete product line of commercial displays, ranging in size from 10″ to 84″, enable customers to find the perfect solution for their digital signage applications. On the software side, digbil’s Web browser based platform supports media uploaded in over 200 of the most common video and audio file formats.
A showcase of these technologies can be seen during Computex 2014 at ViewSonic’s Visual Experience Center, located in ViewSonic’s Corporate office in ZhongHe, Taipei, Taiwan.
