Remote Media provides digital upgrade for Samsung screens

ESSEX, England — Samsung and Remote Media have collaborated to provide a signagelive USBCard automatic update to the Samsung DXN range of 40-inch to 82-inch LCD/PC screens equipped with Remote Media’s Software as a Service (SaaS) digital signage solution.

“This is a tremendous partnership and the coming together of two established pioneers of digital signage,” said Jason Cremins, chief executive of Remote Media, the company behind signagelive. “The collaboration combines the new Samsung DXN series of network enabled LCD Displays complete with Samsung’s three years replacement warranty and the cost-effective scalability of the signagelive to create an all-in-one digital signage solution that can be managed from a Web browser and will operate anywhere in the world over a standard broadband or mobile data connection.”

The upgrade is supplied on a USB Card and when inserted into any DXN it will automatically uninstall the Samsung MagicNet software, install signagelive and present a registration page where the user can add their unique signagelive network code and site details.

Once details are entered the device will connect to the signagelive servers over the Internet, confirm validity of the network code and availability of a license and then issue a unique signagelive serial number to the device. For larger projects this process is automated so that devices are pre-configured with a network code so that the device automatically attaches to signagelive once it is connected to the Internet.

Once successfully attached to signagelive the device will automatically update any preloaded playlists, media, log-files and signagelive software/codecs and start running the required media. The upgrade will be available in the UK and Ireland through RGB Communications, plus all Samsung UK Distributors and will be available from Samsung Distributors throughout the world. In addition, Remote Media’s Global Strategic Partners will be able to purchase the combined Samsung DXN and signagelive bundle directly from Remote Media.
