Sony Partners with signageOS
Sony is joining forces with signageOS, a leader in cloud digital signage infrastructure, who will provide streamlined integration to support Sony’s professional BRAVIA displays and create a more connected digital signage and content management system (CMS) framework for the company and its partners across the globe.
The new signageOS alliance will nearly double the compatibility of Sony’s displays to offer support for close to 60 integrated CMS options, and is planned to be available next month. Additionally, the partnership will better position Sony’s network of systems integrators, resellers, channel partners, managed service providers, and software alliance members to extend and expand their implementation of professional BRAVIA displays with greater ease due to signageOS’ single API system, according to the company.
“We are thrilled not only to align with signageOS but to offer more functionality and value to Sony’s displays—and the bottom line of our growing partner ecosystem worldwide,” said Rich Ventura, vice president of professional display solutions, Sony Electronics. “Working with signageOS elevates Sony’s professional BRAVIA lineup, providing more compatibility, enhanced sustainability measures and a wider range of vertical use cases, while streamlining and unifying many disparate offerings. With a partner like signageOS, we’re also presented with many opportunities to jointly develop and strengthen our businesses moving forward to create a better digital signage ecosystem for the industry.”
“We are very excited about partnering with Sony. As they build out their end-to-end digital signage capabilities, we’re honored to help Sony enable support for so many of the providers that are driving the industry to transform and become faster, easier, and more integrated,” added Stan Richter, CEO, signageOS. “Sony has a definitive mindset on building strong B2B relationships and we look forward to cultivating and expanding our relationship with Sony to directly benefit their Alliance Partner Program while addressing the needs of the community.”
The BRAVIA 4K HDR professional displays range in size from 32-in. to 100-in. (measured diagonally) and are designed for today’s connected AV environments. They feature an HTML5-friendly Android system on a chip (SoC) platform that runs on the latest browser. The company says the lineup offers seamless integration, security, smart customization, continuous updates, easy content sharing and management capabilities, and provides open APIs. The displays’ technologies bring amazing color, contrast, and clarity to content in corporate, education, retail, and public spaces, as well as digital signage, according to Sony.
