MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, – Carousel Digital Signage, a division of Tightrope Media Systems, announces the immediate availability of its new 7.4 software release for enterprise-class digital signage. The new release adds support for BrightSign’s complete range of 4K media players, offering customers a simpler path to a complete 4K Carousel and BrightSign solution as well as more powerful video and graphics.

Carousel and BrightSign have partnered on digital signage network deployments for several years, with especially strong success in the corporate and higher education markets. The previous release (7.3) strengthened the value proposition for systems integrators by sharply reducing the amount of time and labor required to configure, deploy and manage players across enterprise networks. These new integration efficiencies were chiefly tied to new auto-provisioning benefits including high-speed player configuration, remote firmware/software updates, and secure storage of player settings for simplified management and troubleshooting.

The new 7.4 release gives integrators and network operators an easier path to 4K while retaining the enhanced integration and management features of the previous release.

“Carousel Digital Signage has always supported 4K and higher content creation and management, however the continued evolution of our BrightSign partnership now ensures that Carousel seamlessly interoperates with every BrightSign 4K player now and moving forward,” said Eric Henry, President, Carousel Digital Signage. “As BrightSign is clearly the industry-leading media player and the preferred choice of Carousel customers, our latest software release ensures that our customers are free of 4K content playout limitations.”

Henry adds that existing Carousel customers become immediately 4K-capable upon upgrading to 7.4 with a simple software update, and plugging in BrightSign 4K players.

“As with our 7.3 release, the main goal with these latest releases are to simplify life for our customers by creating easy upgrade paths, and supporting both existing and new media player technology,” said Henry.
