ViewSonic Announces Key Partner as Part of Its One-Stop Digital Signage Initiative

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - 2010 Digital Signage Expo, booth 2031 -- ViewSonic® Corp., a leading global provider of visual display, computing and digital content solutions, today at Digital Signage Expo (DSE) 2010 announced a partnership with customized rich-media software solution provider Best Wave, adding further convenience to the digital signage experience.

"ViewSonic is committed to serving as a one-stop solution provider for resellers' display and media player needs," said Michael Holstein, vice president of business development for ViewSonic. "ViewSonic is proud to offer the convenience of buying from one distributor when putting your systems together, and strategic software partnerships with industry leaders such as Best Wave allow us to offer a complete digital signage solution set through our expanded product line."

As a part of ViewSonic's initiative to provide resellers with a one-stop digital signage solution provider, the company announced media player compatibility with Best Wave's latest DisplayIt! 3.0 software solution. In addition to supporting all of ViewSonic's X86-based media players like the NMP-700 and the VOT132, as well as ViewSonic's installed base of NMP-530 and NMP-500 Linux-based players, this robust software works on the Macintosh platform. As a result, businesses have the flexibility to choose the multimedia option that's best for them.

"Our media rich DisplayIt! 3.0 software solution provides businesses with an easy, yet full-featured way to manage their display systems while eliminating the need for a complex Web server," said John Glitsos, president of Best Wave. "By partnering with ViewSonic and its networked player solutions, we know that users can create, schedule and communicate their message in a dynamic and impactful way."

DisplayIt! 3.0 will be available March 1. It includes several licensed software options to meet a wide range of software needs. DisplayIt! 3.0 (SW-030) has an MSRP of $595. DisplayIt! Premium (SW-031) has an MSRP of $995 for customers in need of emergency messaging, administration and password support, and instant text messaging functionality. Each PC media player also requires the DI Player software license (SW-041) with an MSRP of $600. Additional administrative workstation licenses (SW-033) have an MSRP of $295. Since these are fully paid licenses, customers do not have additional monthly charges or usage fees to contend with.

ViewSonic's NMP-700, NMP-530 and VOT132 solutions are currently available for respective MSRPs of $1,099, $799 and $499.
