BrightSign used NAB 2014 as the occasion to reveal its 4K players will support MPEG-DASH which enables high-quality streaming of media content over the Internet.

"4K opens up so many possibilities in digital signage and other industry applications, but it’s important to understand how to deploy these new 4K technologies properly," says Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “As BrightSign continues to expand into the 4K market, we are working with a wider range of partners and demonstrating new technology for supporting the 4K ecosystem at NAB.”

MPEG-DASH is critical when it comes to broadcasting 4K content via the Internet. The protocol takes content from standard HTTP servers and separates that content into individual segments, enabling network bandwidth optimization in real time for maximum streaming efficiency. Efficiencies are maximized because the highest possible bit rate segment will be streamed at any given time, depending on the network resources available at that time.

Asus Chromebox

At DSE 2014, Intel's Jose Avalos, director of digital signage, embedded and communications group, told an audience that—after the release of Google's newest Chromeboxes-- the search giant will be zeroing in on digital signage.

It’s no big surprise that the Chromeboxes could be very inexpensive digital signage media players and the Chrome platform could make the back-end cheaper as well.

The trick for Chromebox is that cost is dropping lower and lower, now approaching $150. With Chrome, one web-based management console cab be used to push the content to the Chromesboxes so it can be shown on displays, which should help bring down the IT and support costs of digital signage networks.
