MediaSignage, Inc. Announces Rollout with AWS CloudFront, Improving Digital Signage Content Download Speeds by Over 600%
Provider of enterprise and entry-level digital signage hardware and software, DigitalSignage.com, is excited to announce the server-wide rollout and implementation of AWS CloudFront. The move provides enhanced speed and delivery of uploaded and downloaded content through the company’s mediaCLOUD and mediaHYBRID software offerings.
By utilizing Amazon’s content delivery web service, MediaSignage can now distribute content to end client digital signage players with little to no latency and at extremely high speeds. In addition to adding the AWS CloudFront service, MediaSignage is eating the marginal cost of adding CloudFront and passing all the benefits on to the end clients for the same monthly hosting rates.
“We are excited to offer new and existing customers the ability to tap the powerful Content Delivery Network (CDN) provided by AWS CloudFront,” says Sean Levy, CEO. “This rollout is critical to provide digital signage operators the ability to more quickly publish content to thousands of displays around the globe.”
Perhaps the greatest benefit to MediaSignage customers is the ability for users to experience some of the fastest upload and download speeds available on the market today. The company expects the changes will have the greatest impact on some international users where distance latency can have a slowing effect on the data transfer speeds. The CDN provides an interim fix in countries where MediaSignage may not have locally-racked servers present.
“With the functionality of AWS CloudFront end users will see a difference in the upload/download speeds of some of their most asset-intensive high-definition video content,” Levy says. “We’re confident the added speed benefit will greatly improve the user experience of many of our existing users.”
