MENOMONIE, Wisc. – March 24, 2011 – StrandVision LLC, a provider of hosted digital signage services for business marketing and employee communications, today announced a new background music feature that enables its subscribers to choose from more than 650 background music streams from 40+ categories. The copyright-cleared music is available 24/7 to accompany promotional messages or employee communications.
The new secure music feed is an ideal way for hotels, banks, retailers, schools, healthcare clinics and other businesses to provide a relaxing environment for staff and visitors with entertaining music played in the background of their digital signage content. StrandVision customers can select from any number of categories of music including adventure, motivational, dramatic, peaceful and orchestral, which are randomly selected for playback when other sound sources are not playing.
In a twist on standard background music packages, StrandVision is inviting emerging artists to provide their original music for distribution. The artist introduction feature allows StrandVision customers to select specific artists and add them to the music mix. The emerging artists are automatically featured on the local digital signage display for a short period through an album cover graphic and other information while the selection is playing.
“This background music feature not only provides a relaxing environment with music of the genre that fits the mood and atmosphere, it gives newcomers and lesser-known musicians, perhaps a customer’s own employees, the ability to be heard (and seen) by tens of thousands of people in businesses around the world watching the StrandVision network screens,” explained Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “The capability was created in response to our customers’ employees looking to have a consistently playing audio track.”
A one-time fee of $750 covers the initial setup for the standard music library with over 650 selections, which can be distributed to all screens for that account.

Emerging artists can contact Mike Strand at 715-235-7446 if they are interested in contributing background music for StrandVision Digital Signage customers. Dodie Hogstad from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is the first to provide music with her “Through the Veils” album. Her beautiful, meditative piano pieces provide a soothing backdrop to the hectic world of business.
