Black Box Adds Plug-and-Play Solutions to Digital Signage Product Line

Publish date:

PITTSBURGH, PA--Black Box Corporation has expanded its line of digital signage products to help businesses more affordably and economically market to and reach their customers.

“Digital signage gets results. Whether you use it to increase sales, cross-sell, upsell, or to improve communications, it’s a smart investment,” said Mario Calabro, Black Box Multimedia products manager. “It’s an effective way of delivering the right message at the right time. Businesses and organizations of all sizes in every vertical are seeing a very quick ROI.”

To meet the increased demands, Black Box has launched a wide array of digital signage solutions. Generating the most industry buzz is iCOMPEL, Black Box’s new family of browser-based, networked digital signage appliances. Showcased at the recent Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, iCOMPEL gives new users and system integrators a highly affordable, “out-of-the-box” way to set up, create and manage digital signage.

Despite its simplified design and affordable price, iCOMPEL provides the advanced features and functionality typically found on very high-end systems.

“You get professionally designed layouts, easy-to-use drag-and-drop tools, and a whole host of other features,” Calabro said. “Plus, there are no ongoing licensing fees, all the software is included and updates are free.”

Because it supports many media formats, users can combine 1080p video or live TV with scrolling text, photos, Flash, and HTML and RSS media. It works with MPEG, AVI, QuickTime, and PowerPoint media, as well as JPEG, GIF and TIFF images, and WAV and MP3 audio. The iCOMPEL system supports playing of stored and live media in multiple screen zones, as well as changing content ad-hoc at the display.
