Grassfish Introduces Version 8 for Samsung Smart Signage Displays

Grassfish, a leading European provider of digital signage content management software and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd announced the formal Certification and release of the Grassfish Version 8 software solution, now compatible with the full range of Samsung Smart Signage displays.
Grassfish’s latest software release, Version 8, introduces feature-rich, integrated media player software, developed specifically for the latest series of Samsung Smart Signage Platform-supported Samsung SMART Signage displays. SSSP is a high-performance, all-in-one solution that eliminates the need for an external PC or media player device. Version 8 now supports all sizes of Samsung displays, ranging from small signage (starting at 10”) for door sign and shelf applications, to large-format displays for stunning retail and corporate installations.

Roland Grassberger, Grassfish CEO, explains: “We are pleased to enhance our ongoing partnership with the recognized world leader in visual display. The Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSSP) and Samsung tablets are both key systems in many digital signage projects around the world. By bringing compatibility with our latest version release, we are able to offer the combined benefits of Samsung’s powerful System-on-Chip technology and our enterprise-grade CMS.”

Damon Crowhurst, Business Development Director, Samsung European Display Organisation, commented: “This partnership between Grassfish and Samsung Electronics helps our companies more effectively respond to evolving display needs in a rapidly-expanding market. The integration of our pioneering technologies creates turn-key solutions that allow faster deployment of digital signage, while improving reliability and optimizing energy consumption for the benefit of our common customers. The growing ecosystem of Smart Signage-compatible Content Management systems validates the significant benefits that the System on Chip technology brings to the market.”
Samsung Electronics and Grassfish have enjoyed a long and successful collaboration pairing their innovative hardware and software technologies. This deep level of integration now enables global clients to benefit from this close collaboration. Initial deployment of the combined solutions will be with the ÖBB Group, which will deliver Smart Signage solutions to  the Austrian Railway Corporation later this year.

Grassfish will also join Samsung as a SSSP Partner at the IFA Berlin starting this week in Germany.
