Is it possible to network a BrightSign player without subscribing to the BrightSign Network?

Last Updated: November 5, 2014

Yes, there are several features that allow you to distribute presentations and other dynamic content to BrightSign players without a BrightSign Network account.

RSS / MRSS / Live Data / Web Pages

As long as the player has an Ethernet or wireless connection, you can use the BrightSign player to access RSS feeds, media RSS fees, and Live Data, as well as sending and receiving commands over the network--even if the player is set up as a standalone unit. You can also use networked XD and 4K players to download and display remote HTML content

Local File Networking - Publish directly to your BrightSign player

You can set up a BrightSign player for Local File Networking. This allows you to see a player on the local network in BrightAuthor under the Publish > Local Networking tab. You can select your unit and publish schedules, playlists, and content to it. 

Simple File Networking - Publishing updates from your web server

Simple File Networking allows you to distribute content to BrightSign players remotely using your own web server. You use BrightAuthor to upload presentations and schedules to the web server. This feature does not support FTP.
