11Giraffes & Samsung Partner to Deliver Streamlined, Cost-Effective Digital Signage Solutions for Retail, Restaurant, Waiting Rooms and More

11Giraffes Announces Partnership with Samsung and Support of Smart Signage All-In-One Digital Signage Hardware Platform.

Charlotte, NC, August 27, 2014 --(PR.com)-- 11Giraffes announced today a partnership with Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a leading provider of commercial displays for use in digital signage applications. The two companies now offer the 11Giraffes digital signage platform for use with Samsung’s Smart Signage Platform (SSP) family of devices. Samsung’s SSP consists of commercial digital displays with integrated media players. The integrated platform eliminates the need for external media players and streamlines the deployment process, saving time and money for integrators and businesses alike.

By integrating its content management system with the Samsung SSP, 11Giraffes is able to deploy an industry leading digital signage solution that eliminates the need for external PCs or media players. The Smart Signage Platform offers a streamlined solution that reduces the total cost of ownership for digital signage deployments, providing hardware, installation and operating cost savings. The combined platforms will make life easier for any organization looking to transition from static signage to rich, interactive digital displays.

“While simplifying the installation process and reducing the cost of digital signage deployment, our implementation of SSP has retained all of the enterprise scheduling, remote content management, network monitoring and reporting functionality associated with the 11Giraffes platform,” says 11Giraffes Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Operations, Jim Marascio. “Additionally, SSP allows for the presentation of live television as part of the solution. As such, SSP is perfect for sports bar and waiting room applications.”

“We are truly excited to add 11Giraffes to the Samsung SSP Partner ecosystem,” says Minson Chen, Samsung Business Development Manager responsible for developing the SSP Platform. “The 11Giraffes solution brings an intuitive interface to empower organizations to leverage a powerful platform yet can scale with features needed to support the most demanding large scale enterprise networks. This capability combined with the cost savings and simplicity offered by Samsung SSP-enabled D-series displays present a strong value proposition to our end customer.”

The relationship between Samsung and 11Giraffes enables 11Giraffes and its resellers to offer the Samsung SSP-enabled displays through existing distribution channels. Samsung will also recommend the 11Giraffes digital signage platform through its sales channels.
