Signagelive announces new support for the Apple Mac and new partnership with Activate The Space
Signagelive are very happy to announce support for Apple Mac devices and a new partnership with the award-winning team at Activate The Space in the U.S.
Signagelive for Mac provides all of the capabilities and features that customers and partners have come to expect from our award-winning cloud-based platform for scheduling, publishing and managing digital signage content and players.
The development and launch of Signagelive for Mac comes after months of extensive development and testing, conducted in collaboration with Activate the Space.
Signagelive for Mac will be demonstrated on the Signagelive stand 8-G335 at ISE, 6th – 9th February 2018.
For the past 10 years, Activate The Space has been the exclusive North American distributor for the ~sedna presenter digital signage software for the Mac. During this time, they were responsible for the sale of nearly 10,000.00 ~sedna presenter licenses used in some of the largest digital signage installations in the U.S.
Activate The Space introduced ~sedna presenter to Times Square with landmark installations such as American Eagle, Express, Clear Channel Outdoor and dozens more. In addition to their outdoor projects, Activate The Space has won numerous awards for their indoor LED installations at Under Armour stores across the country, including the design and integration of the massive indoor LED installment at the iconic Under Armour Chicago location.
With this announcement; Signagelive, in partnership with Activate The Space, is introducing Signagelive Digital Signage support for the Mac. Activate The Space is launching the new partnership under its new “System Product” category titled: “Brandcast” powered by Signagelive.
In addition to this announcement, Activate The Space is launching a new sales portal called DigitalSignageStore.com which will feature all of the supported media playback hardware, Signagelive software licenses and many supporting peripherals needed to create your own Digital Signage System. DigitalSignageStore.com is a one stop shop for all things powered by Signagelive Digital Signage. All products sold have been used and or tested by Activate The Space based on its years of project experience.
Chris Pelzar – CEO and Founder – Activate The Space
We made a decision in 2017 that we wanted all of our systems, including system control and digital signage management, to be cloud-based. Activate The Space operates hundreds of our client’s systems for them and knows, very well, what features our staff and clients demanded moving into 2018.
When we discussed those needs with Signagelive, it became quickly apparent that they not only understood where we wanted to go, but they were already doing much of it. The addition of support for the Mac enabled us to move forward quickly without fear of abandoning our legacy with the Apple Mac products.
In all of the software developments that Activate The Space has been involved in, this one ranks as the best experience we have had. We wanted to focus our attention on how people schedule and deliver content to their screens. The Mac playback aspect was very straightforward, but we wanted expanded capabilities on how these Digital Signage Networks are operated. In fact, we wanted all of the capabilities that Signagelive had on their other media player platforms.
We are very happy to announce that not only has Jason and his team at Signagelive achieved what Activate The Space needed, but it also came with the added benefit that this same portal interface can support other media playback hardware such as IAdea, Brightsign, LG Web OS, Samsung Tizen Smart Signage Displays and Windows. This enables our clients to have a mixed playback network, mixing and matching different media players on the same customer network and scheduling interface. With this, we are now able to offer our clients unparalleled options in price and performance of the media player hardware that all operate from the same interface.
Jason Cremins – Founder and CEO – Signagelive
It was immediately apparent when we met Christopher and the ATS team several months ago that the opportunity for Signagelive to become a major player in the Apple Mac digital signage community was significant. The credibility and track record that ATS has achieved in 10 years of specifying, selling and supporting Apple Mac digital signage solutions in North America made our decision to work with them to develop Signagelive for Mac a very easy one.
We look forward to working closely with ATS to support the launch of their DigitalSignageStore.com offering and Signagelive for Mac powering the many brands and customers that ATS work with daily to deliver a fully managed digital signage solution.
