CE Labs joins the digital signage contest

September 7, 2010 by Dave Haynes

From Digital Signage Universe comes word that Garland, Texas-based CE Labs has jumped into the digital signage waters with its own solution.

Don’t know it. Haven’t see it (though I am a theoretical fan of solid state solutions). It comes with software (with templates) and there are two different networked players, by the looks of it. They remind of the defunct (I think) AGN Pro players that were around for a few years.

The offer adds to the pile of as many as 400 solutions already out there, but the company does have the advantage of a well established client base of AV resellers and integrators who buy all kinds of other gear from them and undoubtedly get calls for digital signage solutions.

CE labs has announced that they will debut a simplified Plug-and-Play Digital Signage system at CEDIA 2010 aimed at small business. The Plug-and-Play Digital Signage will include the MP500, a digital signage media player that is compact and durable and capable of true high definition 1080p playback. QuickSign Pro, a simple and flexible software tool made to manage content to multiple media players will also be included.

At CEDIA, Eric McCready, Vice President of Sales, will host live demonstrations throughout the event and will be available to answer any digital signage questions. The goal of CE labs Plug-and-Play Digital Signage is to make it accessible for small to mid-size companies without the substantial cost of other digital signage providers. This will in turn make the Plug-and-Play Digital Signage easy for the reseller to offer to their customers. CEDIA is scheduled for September 22-26, 2010 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.
