NoviSign Digital Signage and Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), unveiled today, the next milestone in their strategic relationship. NoviSign’s online Studio editor, an industry-leading cloud-based digital signage software, and management software is now available to dependably run on the new SHARP 40” class PN-B401/PN-M401 and 50” class PN-B501/PN-M501 professional LCD displays.  Available to mutual clients today, the on-chip NoviSign Android digital signage software addition helps brands optimize the way they create and manage digital signage content.

For the last several months, NoviSign’s engineering team has been working closely with SIICA to test NoviSign’s cloud-based digital signage software to run on the new PN-B Series,” said Chad Bogan, Director of Sales and Marketing, at NoviSign. “Not only are you eliminating the need for an external player, but you are empowering customers to begin designing content-rich digital signage powered by NoviSign.
