BTX Introduces MediaMessenger(TM) Digital Signage Kit

Offered in Multiple Versions, Cost and Time-Saving Kit Includes PADS4 Software, BTX MediaMessenger Player, Display, Wall Mount, and HDMI(R) Cables

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. — July 18, 2012 — BTX Technologies, a value-added distributor and manufacturer of interface, integration, and system products, today introduced its MediaMessenger(TM) Digital Signage Kit, which includes everything needed to set up a digital signage system quickly in one cost-effective package. Offered in three different versions — Gold, Silver, and Bronze — with multiple configurations to meet the needs of any installation, the turnkey system includes Net Display Systems’ (NDS) PADS4 digital signage viewer software, a BTX MediaMessenger Media Player, commercial-grade Philips flat-panel display, flat-panel wall mount, and HDMI(R) cables.

The BTX MediaMessenger Digital Signage Kit is powered by PADS4 digital signage software. With PADS4, users can easily integrate real-time data from sources including Microsoft(R) Exchange, Microsoft Dynamics(R), SAP, content management systems, room reservation systems, queue management, and social media. Interactivity can also be incorporated into signage systems using touchscreens, RFID, barcodes, QR codes, and face recognition.

Ideal for media-intensive presentations, content is driven to the Kit’s display by the BTX MediaMessenger Media Player. Developed in collaboration with the most sophisticated hardware engineers in the country, the MediaMessenger player is optimized for PowerPoint(R) content, Flash(R), 1080p video, rotating pictures, scrolling text, and more.

The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Suites are all available with 32-inch, 42-inch, or 55-inch displays, with the Silver and Gold Suites also offering 42-inch touchscreen displays. The Bronze Suite supports basic content including text and images. For more sophisticated presentations, the Silver Suite adds support for video and sound, web, interactivity, Flash, and more. For the ultimate in multimedia, the Gold Suite is bolstered with support for presentation-in-presentation, television, charts, tables, PDFs, and RS-232. To ensure proper set-up, the Silver and Gold Suites both include one hour of integrator training. An additional two hours of technical support from BTX’s expert staff is included with the Gold Suite.

“Our cost-effective MediaMessenger Digital Signage Kit includes everything needed to get a digital signage system up and running in a matter of hours instead of days,” said Greg Schwartz, president of BTX. “Once set up, the PADS4 software saves network operators the time and expense of duplicating content by integrating with existing databases and more, while our MediaMessenger Media Player delivers exceptional performance for media-intensive content. With three different versions to choose from, we offer the right solution for any installation.”
