Userful and Sony Announce Partnership to ‘Advance Visual Communications for Enterprise IT’


Userful Corporation and Sony Electronics announced an alignment to advance visual communications for enterprise IT. This includes the certification of Sony’s Pro BRAVIA Displays with the Userful Infinity Platform and Signage Plus Solution, enhancing collaboration for the global enterprise. It also marks Userful’s entry into Sony’s Professional AV Alliance Partner Network.

The companies say the Infinity | Pro BRAVIA certified solution ensures that Userful and Sony have completed testing of the compatibility and reliability of the combined solution. Testing is completed end to end, from source to screen, from subnet to data center to cloud, from end node to network management interface, across multiple APIs. The companies say the alliance between Userful and Sony establishes a commitment to certify new features to support continued technology compatibility and enhanced customer experiences.

Userful’s signage solutions leverage a flexible and efficient content delivery network (CDN) to distribute any media content for playback to a large number of displays and/or LED walls with high quality, while also offering an optional cloud-based CMS application. This architecture allows for applications to be deployed most cost-effectively for their use case.

Key admin functions are centralized at the platform level including user management, role-based access, device monitoring, device management and emergency alerts. This allows IT teams to manage these in one place, while content management by users happens on different applications.
