The SmarterSign Player software runs on the computer or screen and is responsible for the playback of your digital signage content. Once installed, you will control the player software from the web based content management system, SmarterSign Manager.

Using a BrightSign device as a SmarterSign Player is a great way to get your content onto your Digital Sign. Follow the steps below to install the software onto your BrightSign Player and get started:

IMPORTANT – Before you get started
In order to get SmarterSign Player onto your BrightSign device you are going to need a Micro SSD card that will be placed into your BrightSign device. We recommend a Micro SSD card that has at least 64GB of storage.

STEP 1 – Download the SmarterSign Player Installer Files

Download the SmarterSign Player files for BrightSign using the link found HERE

STEP 2 – Unzip files and put them on your Micro SSD card

The .zip file you have downloaded in STEP 1 can be opened and the files in this archive can be placed onto your Micro SSD card.

STEP 3 – Place the Micro SSD card in your BrightSign device

There is a small slot on the BrightSign device that is used for your Micro SSD card.  Make sure you push the card into the slot so that it stays in place. You should push it all the way in and it will release a little and lock in place. When this is done you can turn your BrightSign device on.

Samsung Smart Signage Platform

The SmarterSign Player software can run on Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSSP) screens using the URL Launcher. When prompted, set the URL Launcher to point to:

Note: trying to open that url in a web browser will result in a broken link, this is normal.
