The BSN Web API was made available for public use with the recent release of the BrightSign Network 3.5. The reference manual for the API is now available on the Documentation page.
The Web API allows BrightSign Network operations to be carried out using a standardized library of SOAP commands. Developers can use this API to build web applications that take advantage of BrightSign Network functionality. Please note that the Web API is still in a provisional phase, and some application behaviors and/or performance limitations may not be documented yet.

BrightSign firmware version 4.7.122 is now available on the Software Downloads page. The firmware download section is located below the BrightAuthor download section.
This firmware is compatible with the following models: HD120, HD220, HD1020, XD230, XD1030, and XD1230. Note that the update files for XD and HD players are different. Make sure to use the download link that corresponds to your player model.
The XD version of firmware features several improvements for HTML5, including fixes for the application cache and for <video> elements.
Both HD and XD versions of firmware also include fixes for USB peripherals: Connecting “input only” USB audio devices no longer causes a player to crash, and the status lights of function keys (e.g. Num Lock, Caps Lock) on USB keyboards now update correctly.
