BrightSign players are made by BrightSign (https://www.brightsign.biz/) and are supported by Carousel thanks to a partnership with BrightSign.
There are a few different series, models and even a few 3rd party hardware partners with their own players built on the BrightSign platform.
The models supported will depend on the version of Carousel installed on your system, note that at this time Carousel Cloud does not support BrightSign players.

Finding your BrightSign Player's series and model number
BrightSign players have a series and a model designation. On the top, or front, of the player there will be a set of letters and a number, this is the player series. In the example below, this is an XT3 player.
On the back of the device you will find more information like the model (underlined in red), serial number (underlined in blue) and MAC (removed from this example)
If you have your model number, its very easy to figure out your series. Take letters and the last number of your model and that's the series of the player. For example, an XT1143 is a XT3 series player and a XD232 is an XD2.
