MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Feb. 26, 2013 — Haivision, a global leader in enterprise IP video streaming and digital signage solutions, today announced a powerful and low-cost approach to digital signage — the Mantaray(TM) player for CoolSign(TM).

Mantaray is an integrated player appliance combining the powerful CoolSign ad player technology with a cost-effective and reliable Android(TM)-based operating system. Designed for networks that scale, CoolSign and Mantaray offer stadiums, universities, and global corporations sophisticated content management, dynamic data, and scheduling.

Mantaray incorporates CoolSign’s DataWatcher technology for real-time and automated information updates and supports player-level scheduling, multiple regions, smooth tickers, full-motion 1080p60 video playout, and wired or wireless network connections. Using Mantaray, CoolSign network administrators get real-time playout feedback, playlogs, and can manage and upgrade players remotely.

“Low-cost players, like the Mantaray, drive much needed broad distribution of media, but without enterprise-grade management, signage networks become ineffective,” said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer at Haivision. “Haivision’s goal is to enable controlled rich-media delivery to the widest possible audience, with scalability and reliability. As a hallmark of the digital signage industry, CoolSign is field-proven with some of the most diverse deployments globally.”

Mantaray makes its debut at the Digital Signage Expo 2013 in Las Vegas, Feb. 27-28 at Haivision’s booth 1713. Mantaray’s single unit list price is less than $500.
