Edisonweb intros first digital signage platform for the Microsoft Cloud

Edisonweb, the Italian software house that developed the Web Signage digital signage platform, has announced the immediate availability of its solution for Windows Azure and the Microsoft Cloud.
According to Edisonweb, Web Signage is the first digital signage software platform in the world available for Microsoft’s Cloud. The solution consists of a Web-based management application delivered as a service and a player software managing the multimedia content playback on digital signage displays.
The player has successfully passed compatibility tests conducted by Microsoft for the 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, according to a company release.
“We are particularly proud of having achieved first, in the software for digital signage arena, this important compatibility goal,” Edisonweb CEO Riccardo D’Angelo said. “That will allow us to further shorten the release and development times and increase both scalability and performance, thanks to the great flexibility offered by the Windows Azure platform.”
The compatibility with Microsoft’s cloud services of the Windows Azure platform strengthens the offer toward international markets. Both software and infrastructure will be available as a service supplied through the Microsoft data centers spread throughout the world. Web Signage is always supplied by the nearest Windows Azure data center to ensure the highest performances.
Also, thanks to the evolution from SaaS to IaaS, a set of more flexible distribution and resale agreement, including OEM and co-brand formulas will be available to partners, Edisonweb says.
