Can BrightSign players receive IR commands from a remote?


Every BrightSign player with a USB port supports the Iguanaworks USB IR transceiver. Players can use this transceiver to receive IR commands from a BrightSign remote or other infrared devices.

The XTx44, XTx43, XDx34, XDx33, XDx32, 4Kx42, HDx24, and HO523 models also have a 3.5mm port for sending and receiving IR commands, while the XDx30 models have a 3.5mm port for IR output only.

Please contact for more details if you want to use a 3rd party remote with the BrightSign. 

BrightAuthor:connected and BrightAuthor have predefined text values that correspond to different keys on the BrightSign remote control. See this FAQ for a list.

    Hi Gavin,

    Thanks for catching that typo; the XDx30 models support IR output only over the 3.5mm port. This error has been fixed.

    Are the USB Transceivers plug and play? If not, how do they work?

    You need to create a presentation in BrightAuthor and use the "Remote Input" event to specify a command syntax, and what should occur when the IR command is received by the BrightSign.

    Will the Brightsign Remote control work with an XT243 using and IR receiver plugged into the 3.5 IR port?

    Hi Everyone,

    as far as i know, the XD1030 has IR Input on Pin 1 of the GPIO - according to the GPIO Button Board BB200 there is a seperate channel dealing with IR. If I can recieve signals over that Pin, how i handle this signage within BA? Can i remote that unit with a spare Apple IR Remote? Thanx in advance
