We are about to launch Storage, our media library for digital signage, for $10 per month, per Company, with no variable charges or limitations, as long as you are using Storage for Rise Vision digital signage.
If you are using Storage now you will automatically be enrolled in a free 90 day trial when Storage launches. During the trial period you can move your media assets to another library if you no longer want to use our service and simply reference those assets by URL in your Presentations. And if you are interested in creating your own media library we have published Storage as open source on GitHub here https://github.com/Rise-Vision/storage-client. Feel free to contribute to our code if you think something is missing or take it and use it for your own project.
For awhile now many of you have been asking for us to set our price for Storage so that you can budget for what your digital signage costs will be. Our apologies for how long this took as we had to both figure out a model that would give you one simple and predictable number each month, and, we needed enough data on usage and development costs for us to understand what we need to cover. Our usage is based upon managing digital signage with Rise Vision and for this reason we have to maintain one caveat on this pricing. If you use Storage for something other than your digital signage with Rise Vision, and that usage is outside of what normal usage would consume, we will throttle your bandwidth consumption. We hope that you will use Storage for what it was intended for, your digital signage on Rise Vision, at one predictable price per month.
Many thanks for your patience while we worked this all out!
Peer to Peer Digital Signage Dealer Training
If you are new to Digital Signage and looking to expand your business, check out this two and a half day interactive training workshop put on by Display Solutions Group featuring Peerless AV, NEC Display, BrightSign, C2G and Rise Vision.
The session will help you understand the flow of digital signage, best business practices, and about content creation / management. The training will start at 1pm on Monday, August 11th and finish up around 4pm on Wednesday the 13th.
Check out the training outline and topics.
On Sept. 17th examine the opportunities and implications of technologies such as microprocessors, new operating systems, HTML5, Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons, cloud services and much more.
DSrupted is decidedly different from typical conferences:
- Full hours are being devoted to specific subjects, with ample time for questions and follow-ups;
- There are only five speakers, all of them hand-selected for their subject matter knowledge, insights and speaker skills;
- All the speakers come from outside, or the edges, of the traditional digital signage eco-system, providing a refreshing new perspective;
- There’s no associated trade show or sponsor demo fair that day. It’s all about learning.
Rise Vision is sponsoring because we believe the subject matter is important, and deserves the quality time of a full-day conference. If you are involved in the digital signage business– and want to understand not only where it is but where it is going – you should put DSrupted on your schedule for Sept. 17th
You’ll find full details and booking information on the dedicated DSrupted website
We hope to see you on Sept. 17th! in downtown Toronto.
If you are interested in learning more about Digital Signage from users and key industry vendors check out the following Google video hangouts sponsored by the Digital Signage Federation next week.
Each hangout will feature a panel of 4 members with different perspectives from users, content, system integration, and vendors. Live attendees can interact with the panel and submit questions, but if you can’t make a live session don’t worry – the panel discussions will be recorded and available on the Google Plus event page.
