BrightSign partners with Walls.io to build social media walls
BrightSign is partnering with Walls.io which will enable content managers in retail, live events, education, hospitality and corporate environments to collect and curate user-generated content across multiple social platforms to a digital signage display, powered by BrightSign.
Walls.io chief executive Michael Kamleitner says the company is delighted to partner with BrightSign, offering customers the option to display their curated social media walls through the signage solutions.
“BrightSign is a leader in content management and partner networks, with an impressive hardware portfolio of reliable players which spans the entire market from high performance, top-end installations to simple entry-level solutions,” he says.
“The fact that both BrightSign and Walls.io technologies are based on open standards meant that integration was swift and straightforward, taking less than two months.”
Michael adds that the team is impressed with BrightSign’s support for large installations which will be popular with its events and tradeshow customers in the coming months.
BrightSign chief executive Jeff Hastings commends the work that Walls.io does: “This new integration significantly widens the options for our customers who seek new ways to engage with their audiences and encourage them to share their own content. User-generated content is the future for digital signage, and with Walls.io, BrightSign is at the forefront of this trend.”
Walls.io’s main markets are in the USA, Germany, UK and Italy, with high interest from retail, higher education and sports sectors. Walls created with Walls.io’s technology are already used to display social media content during NBA games, Google technology conferences and in showrooms by Prada and other premiere brands.
