Tightrope Media Systems Lowers Carousel Digital Signage Cost of Ownership

New pricing structure eliminates channel licensing costs, reduces price per end point

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, February 4, 2015Tightrope Media Systems has refined its pricing strategy to benefit its entire Carousel customer base, reducing the cost of digital signage network deployments at any scale. The new cost structure removes the need to buy unique licenses for each channel, instead charging for server and player connections only.

Carousel 330

Tightrope has long offered its customers the freedom to buy only what they need, instead of forcing them to purchase packaged systems or blocks of players. While the further simplification of pricing benefits all Carousel customers, it’s especially valuable for larger networks – or smaller networks with an interest in scaling to more end points. As a result, new and existing Carousel customers can customize as many channels as desired without escalating costs – and potentially experience a cost savings north of 50 percent in networks with more than 75 media players.

“Carousel has always offered a straightforward pricing structure, but we have further simplified the buying experience through unlimited, free channel licenses with the purchase of a Carousel server,” said Eric Henry, signage solutions developer, Tightrope Media Systems. “This is not only attractive for new customers, but also for existing customers that want to re-invest in their signage networks.”

Henry adds that resellers and systems integrators also benefit from a greatly reduced complexity in quoting systems or installations.

Additionally, end users can now virtualize any Carousel server, and deploy its software on any operating system. Tightrope’s Professional Services team offers remote integration assistance to any customer interested in virtualizing systems to ensure smooth and proper configuration.

“We believe there is tremendous value in a beautifully designed network with custom-branded channels, as well as having the end customer up and running quickly,” said Henry. “Ultimately, our goal is to remove constraints from the end user’s mind, lower their costs, and ensure they are leveraging their Carousel investment and all its possibilities.”

Calibre releases NEW LEDView325DS Digital Signage LED Videowall Scaler

LEDView325DS Angled

Calibre announces the release of its latest model in the highly successful LEDView range of LED videowall optimised image scalers.

LEDView325DS is designed specifically for cost conscious digital signage projects where quality is required but without breaking the bank.

Digital signage is a market often ignored when it comes to high quality scaling with many clients relying on software based solutions from a PC. This unfortunately causes difficulty creating and showing client content together with severe image quality issues, both of which lead to unhappy clients.

LEDView325DS is a cost effective yet high quality image scaler which provides Calibre’s market-leading pixel-accurate per-edge image re-sizing algorithm which allows each edge of the picture content to be independently dragged to the correct position on the LED videowall.

There is also per input colour calibration capability to ensure client content looks how the client wants with control of RGB gains and blacks as well as saturation and hue even on digital computer-originated content. These are the kinds of functions typically found on premium live events models, which are now available without the cost associated with a live events scaler.

LEDView325DS gives outstanding image quality with fast simple set-up of picture size, colour calibration and network-based back-up and restore of settings for fast disaster recovery. Control and configuration is by internet browser, using the inbuilt webserver so when connected to a suitable network remote control and status monitoring is also possible.

Calibre UK will exhibit on stand 4U64 at ISE 2015 taking place from 10-12 February 2015 at the Amsterdam RAI.

About Calibre
Multi-award winning British company, Calibre has over the past 27 years achieved world recognition providing image scaling and processing technologies for use in broadcast/television, digital cinema, large venue projection, LED videowalls and surgical medical applications. Calibre manufactures products under its own brand-names as well as providing products and technology to several market leaders in the Pro-AV market worldwide. Calibre is a market leader in innovation, utilizing its own, UK & Germany-based in-house hardware and software design teams for all its product developments and its own UK manufacturing. www.calibreuk.com

International recognition of interactive 3D projection mapping first!

Paris, France – Play Me! an interactive 3D projection mapping spectacular created by French multimedia artists, Danny Rose for Vivid Sydney, an 18 day festival of music, light and ideas, has won the Judges Choice Award for Play Me! at the DIGI Awards 2015 in New York City.

The DIGI Awards recognises the service providers who have gone the extra mile to ensure success for their clients, thereby furthering the digital signage industry as a whole. The Judges Choice Award winner impressed the team of experienced judges for its innovative use of technology and mass audience engagement, in a way that went beyond normal ‘digital signage’,” said David Keene, Executive Editor at NewBay Media’s Digital Signage Magazine, and Chairman of the Judges Committee for the DIGI Awards.

Play Me! at Vivid Sydney 2014

Vivid Sydney is an 18-day festival of light, music and ideas – the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting a record 1.43 million attendees in 2014.

Now in its seventh year, Vivid Sydney is and owned and managed by Destination New South Wales (NSW), the State Government’s tourism and major events agency.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said: “Congratulations to the creative team at Danny Rose on winning this distinguished international award for their compelling Play Me! experience.

“Each year the world’s finest artists are invited to showcase their talents, ideas and creativity at Vivid Sydney. Play Me! delighted many of the record 1.43 million visitors to Vivid Sydney last year and it was one of the most popular exhibits of the festival. We look forward to working with Danny Rose again on future projects,” Ms Chipchase said.

Play Me! from Danny Rose incorporated visual and interactive elements through a series of massive ‘musical sculptures. Each ‘sculpture’ represents a family of musical instruments, which the audience ‘played’ in real-time just using hands and body. The audience member is able to change colour, light shape and sound in front of festival-goers.

High definition projectors provided by video experts, TDC – Technical Direction Company were used to project content onto the façade of Customs House, Sydney.

Play Me! is made possible using powerful 3D real-time software and rendering engine that manages interactivity and high-quality interactive graphics.

A Microsoft® Kinect motion capture system intercepts the body’s movements. Danny Rose has custom created special software that allows for the audience to interact with Play Me! just using a combination of hand and body movements.

“We’re delighted to receive this recognition for our work in creating Play Me! at Vivid Sydney 2014” said Sergio Carrubba, director and designer of Danny Rose, the design team for this project.

Vivid Sydney will be held from 22 May to 8 June 2015. For more information visit www.vividsydney.com.
