BrightSign, LLC announced this week that the Audio Authority is using the BrightSign System on a Chip (SoC) solution in its new range of multimedia hubs.
Audio Authority is the latest in a long line of partners using BrightSign SoC to enable the distribution of audio and video content in their solutions.
"The Audio Authority has identified BrightAuthor hardware and software as the ideal platforms to provide almost unlimited connectivity and interactivity potential, based on user interface methods, including audio and video, as well as other types of sensors and device control mechanisms," the joint announcement said.
The integration of BrightSign's SoC solution "allows the Audio Authority to provide a customized set of inputs and outputs designed to create unique and engaging experiences for each application," according to the press release.
BrightSign-compatible media hubs include:
1812 Media Hub ($495) produces native 1080p video and high fidelity sound, with all the personalized interactions made possible by BrightSign's BrightAuthor software. 1812 has several ports to connect interactive devices such as buttons and serial control devices, including touch screens and touch screens.
To keep your presentations in the field up to date, update your multimedia content and BrightAuthor programming via Ethernet or update your SD card locally.
1824 Media Hub Distribution Amp ($549) adds several video outputs to the Media Hub platform. For demonstration systems that require multiple video wells, the 1824 acts as its own 1:4 distribution amplifier. Connect up to four HDMI sinks (TVs, soundtracks, A-V receivers, etc.) to the player; each output provides an identical 1080p video signal and allows individual CEC commands to be sent to each sink.
The 1824 is ideal for coordinating an HDMI audio or video experience, with multiple user interface options and multiple ways to interface directly with AVRs, TVs and audio bars via Ethernet, RS-232 or CEC communication.
1826 Media Hub/Audio Switch ($536) combines interactivity with switching and audio distribution in 1826. In addition to 1080p video on the HDMI output, this oriented audio player offers digital or analog sound on each of its four audio outputs.
An audio bus output can be used to add other audio components. Multiple ports on the 1826 connect interactive devices such as buttons and serial control devices, including touch screens and touch screens to serve a variety of demonstration projects. To keep field presentations up to date, update multimedia content and BrightAuthor programming via Ethernet.
All prices above reflect the MSRP. The Audio Authority's multimedia hubs with BrightSign Built-In will soon be available.
