Can BrightSign players receive IR commands from a remote?

Last Updated: October 19, 2016


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 device.

The XTx43, 4Kx42, XDx33, and XDx32 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 has predefined text values that correspond 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.
