Haivision Brings Together Secure IP Video and Digital Signage With CoolSign(TM) 5.0

Combining CoolSign(TM) Digital Signage, Furnace(TM) IP Video, and KulaByte(TM) Internet Streaming for Integrated Media Solutions on Campus and Across the World

MONTREAL and CHICAGO -- June 11, 2012 -- Haivision today announced CoolSign(TM) 5.0, the latest version of its digital signage system. CoolSign 5.0 brings together digital signage with IP video, allowing clients to deliver combined rich media and live broadcasts across campuses and to remote signage players and mobile devices globally.


By integrating the secure IP video distribution technology of Haivision's Furnace(TM) within the CoolSign player, CoolSign is the only digital signage solution for a facility that can incorporate broadcast content without copy risk -- a critical requirement of any content provider. Encrypted live HD channels can be displayed as a region or full screen on any player. The CoolSign player can also access Internet-based RTMP streams, assuring that even over a global network, any player can access live HD content.

Haivision is unique in providing a complete mix of signage and IP video technology. With Haivision's KulaByte(TM) Internet media streaming solutions, signage content can be delivered as high-quality adaptive bit rate HD streams to any desktop, laptop, or mobile device. With Haivision's Furnace system, signage content can easily be made available as channels accessible by all desktops within the context of the user's channel experience, or to low-cost set-top boxes throughout a facility.

CoolSign 5.0 will feature a new, simplified Web-based management interface to upload, manage, and distribute content from various devices, including iPad(R)/iPhone(R), Windows(R), and Android(TM) mobile devices. The intuitive, drag-and-drop Web interface takes advantage of touch-screen devices, making it easy for anyone from retail store managers to office administrators to add local content into digital signage carrying the corporate brand.

"Haivision is solving the challenges of the enterprise by delivering integrated solutions," said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer at Haivision. "Content is always a critical challenge with any digital signage deployment. By combining CoolSign's powerful data automation tools with the attractiveness of live, linear broadcast and local content management, Haivision is enabling clients to deploy contextual, compelling information to every display and every user globally."

CoolSign 5.0 will be released in this fall. More information about Haivision is available at www.haivision.com.
