BrightSign BSN.cloud Partner Application Deployment

If you are using BSN.cloud / BrightAuthor Connected, please simply select embed signage from the CMS Partner Application list:


BrightSign SD Card autorun.brs Deployment

For installing embed via SD card, here are the things you'll need to start:

  • A compatible BrightSign player

  • A blank SD Card

  • An ethernet cable connection to a live network

  • The embed signage autorun.brs file - available via our downloads page

Follow these steps to get your device set up with embed signage:

  1. Download the autorun.brs file

  2. Load the autorun.brs file onto the blank SD card (must be only file on SD)

  3. With the BrightSign player off, please insert the SD card

  4. Connect the BrightSign player to a live network via Ethernet cable

  5. Power on the BrightSign player

  6. Wait for it to complete installation - this may take several minutes, please be patient. When it's completed you'll be presented with an embed signage 'finalise set up' page on the player.ย 

  7. On a computer on the same network, open a browser (Chrome, Firefox etc) navigate to the IP address shown on the screen to finalise the setup (IP:8000)

  8. Login using the default credentials for the player which are:

    1. username: admin

    2. password: serial number of the BrightSign player

  9. Once logged in, you can alter the player settings and configuration including the player resolution output, any network details (static, wireless, DHCP etc) and then save > please patient as the player finalises the set up. The player will reboot during this phase.
