Userful and Rise Vision partner to bring free cloud content management to multi-screen digital signage

Versatile content management system pairs with Userful Network Video Wall for a high-quality and affordable video wall solution

CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Userful Corporation, an industry-leader in digital display software, and Rise Vision, an enterprise digital signage platform, have teamed up to offer customers a stunning video wall that any business or organization can afford.

Userful's Network Video Wall is the first video wall solution to deliver 4k and higher content in real time over the network and the first to support multiple, independent video walls from a single, standard PC with no specialized video cards required. With Rise Vision integration the solution now offers customers a free, enterprise digital signage content management system that anyone can setup and manage.

Since launching the Network Video Wall solution last month, Userful has been experiencing increasing interest in the innovative solution.

"Managing content in creative ways, has been a key need for video wall users in the past," said Tim Griffin, founder and CTO of Userful. "Rise Vision is simple, cost-effective and flexible, and in that way is a very good match for Userful Network Video Wall. Integrating Rise Vision with Userful enables anyone to easily deploy and manage eye-catching video walls."

Both Userful and Rise Vision share the same goal of disrupting the digital signage industry by making signage intuitive and low-cost. Userful customers now have access to Rise Vision's free platform to give them complete control of their content from any browser and provides unlimited scalability to grow and expand their network of digital signs.

"Video walls have been growing in popularity and our users are always looking for more economical ways to create larger displays," said Ryan Cahoy, managing director of Rise Vision. "We were delighted to see Userful take our open source code and adapt our player to work with their unique product. It truly demonstrates the power of open source and allowing the marketplace to create specialized offerings." 

The Userful Network Video Wall is uniquely designed to capture audience attention and engage teams in any setting. Displays can be configured in standard grid formats, or arranged in artistic designs placing any screen at angle rotation or placement within the canvas. The solution utilizes a standard Ethernet connection to drive up to 25 displays, eliminating much of the proprietary hardware and IT costs traditionally associated with video walls.
