Please note that we only support the latest generation of BrightSign devices. Any of the devices listed as Legacy on this page are not supported by Fusion Signage.
Get the BrightSign unit ready
Connect to a screen via HDMI (or other display cable).
Connect to internet via ethernet port
Download the default Fusion Signage application files for BrightSign
Get the latest version here:
The default application has the following settings applied:
Application auto update is turned on
Fusion Signage settings menu appears on single click/touch
IP is set via DHCP
Orientation is set to Landscape
Resolution is set to 1920 x 1080
Timezone is not set
You can make changes to these settings once the application is installed on the BrightSign, as long as you can connect a mouse to the device, or use a touchscreen to access the Fusion settings.
Note: On the Standard series players there's no USB connection so it's not possible to connect a mouse to access settings. You will need to create a customised configuration file using the step below.
Create customised configuration files for BrightSign
If you are using a Standard series BrightSign player without a USB connection, you will need to set the configuration files within the Fusion Signage portal as you aren't able to connect a mouse to access our application settings.
Navigate to the Fusion Signage portal, under Settings -> Player App or click here:
Scroll down to the BrightSign section, click on Configuration Settings:
Make any changes to the BrightSign configuration files you require including:
Enable Auto Updates
This allows the the automatic updating of our application once a new version has been released. This is on by default, and if turned off, you can still manually update the application using a mouse and the Fusion Signage settings.
Enable Video Sound
Turns on audio for any video files
Enable Menu Secure Access
Used with touch screens, this setting prevents the Fusion Signage menu from appearing when touched. If this is enabled, in order to access the Fusion settings menu on the device, you will need to click/touch 5 times quickly instead of once.
Changes the screen rotation degrees (0, 90, 180, 270)
Set the timezone of the device. This is important for passing security checks to receive an identifier from our server, as well as for scheduling content at the correct time.
Enable Custom Screen Size
Used mostly for LED applications, allows you to set a custom screen resolution (in pixels) as well as an offset.
Manual Network Configuration
Allows you to set a static IP instead of using DHCP. Specify your IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Broadcast Address and DNS here.
Click Create File, this will generate your customised settings.json file.
Copy this file onto your SD Card with the autorun.zip file
If you are adding the settings.json file after you have installed the Fusion Signage application, you will need to reboot the player for the settings to apply.
Install the Fusion Signage Application
Copy the Autorun.zip file downloaded above onto a blank SD card.
Insert SD card into the Brightsign player and reboot.
You will see the Fusion Signage application launch on the screen with an identity code
