Tightrope Media Systems to Unveil All-in-One Carousel Digital Signage Displays

Ideal for self-service kiosks, all-in-one displays feature the power and flexibility of Carousel digital signage software, PoE connectivity and a highly responsive, interactive touchscreen

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, March 8, 2016 - Tightrope Media Systems is developing a new all-in-one display system powered by its Carousel digital signage software. The all-in-one displays, to be shown at the Digital Signage Expo (March 16-17, Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth 1037) are ideal for interactive, information-based kiosks in busy consumer and visitation spaces. This includes "end of aisle" deployments in supermarkets and retail stores, as well as large campuses (corporate, higher education) and exhibit-based environments (museums, zoos and parks).


Developed in partnership with Thinlabs, a leading manufacturer of specialized thin client and desktop computing solutions, the Carousel All-In-One display systems offer a rugged and appealing kiosk design to withstand heavy use in high-traffic locations. Its interactive properties are elevated through 22-inch projective capacitive touch displays with built-in quadcore computing to accelerate content delivery, intelligently organized and delivered on-demand by Carousel's powerful content playout software.

Systems integrators and electrical contractors benefit from the system's Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity, which minimizes wiring and eliminates high-voltage concerns. This simplifies initial deployments, requiring only a low-voltage Ethernet cable to connect the kiosk to the network. Ongoing maintenance is streamlined through hot-swappable motherboards, and a three-year warranty provides additional assurances and protections for customers whether deploying standalone systems or a large network of kiosks.

"Many of our customers have requested an all-in-one kiosk solution that marries the data-rich benefits of Carousel software with an interactive touchscreen that provides a familiar tablet-like user experience," said Eric Henry, VP of Signage Solutions, Tightrope Media Systems. "This innovation brings that responsive, high-performance touchscreen experience to consumers through a design that is both easy to deploy and maintain over many years, lowering total cost of ownership for the end user."
