Keywest Technology Releases 4-Channel Signage Player That Connects to Cloud Services

The Breeze 4-channel player simplifies digital menu or video wall installation and management by using a single platform that connects to a cloud server for ubiquitous control.

Lenexa, KS July 14, 2015


Keywest Technology has launched another multi-head digital signage player using an Intel® Core i7 CPU running on an Ubuntu open source software platform. The 4-channel signage player supports up to four 1080P channels, which provides a dynamic, high-res presentation for menu systems or video walls. The player is controlled via the company's cloud-based digital signage service called Breeze Digital Signage.

Just before the summer concert season, Keywest Technology contracted AVIES TECH to install the Breeze 4-channel system at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. The Breeze system lights up club-level digital menu boards at eight concessions stands using 42 Philips thin-bezel displays.

Lisa Ramsour, Project Manager at Keywest Technology, commented that the 4-channel Breeze players performed like "rock stars" during a Rolling Stones concert held at the 80,000-seat venue in June. "One menu item needed to be changed instantly because a food vendor sent crispy chicken rather than grilled. One phone call to Keywest Creative and the new menus were updated instantly. The service staff and management were delighted!"

Working in conjunction with Breeze Digital Signage, Keywest Technology offers network-managed services through Keywest Creative that provide restaurant owners and venue managers all of the benefits of digital menu boards without any of the worry that comes from technical snafus and creative management.

"The Breeze 4-channel signage player expands Keywest Technology's capabilities in network-managed services," said Nick Nichols, Keywest Technology's President. "With Breeze, we're not just offering the nuts and bolts of digital signage, but full-on network management that delivers expert results at a reasonable price. The 4-channel Breeze system extends our ability to create and manage robust menu systems or video walls offsite, which not only offers greater utility to clients but also offers far-reaching service value."

Although network-managed services is an integral part of the Breeze Digital Signage value proposition, restaurant and venue managers may login to Breeze using the ubiquitous web browser to control the 4-channel signage player. Browser access gives managers advanced digital signage management tools like a template builder, nested playlists, an advertising module, an admin approval queue and handy widgets that add useful features such as weather or data integration. Also, Breeze can also be accessed and controlled via a smartphone. This essentially gives it "pocket control" for those that want to manage the system themselves while on the go, or at least make last-minute changes if a standard browser is not available.

The Breeze 4-channel signage player commenced shipping this spring, and it's available from authorized AV system and architectural integrators throughout North America.
