StrandVision Digital Signage Provides a New Audience for Emerging Recording
StrandVision’s background music feature is available for its subscribers and is also a showcase for emerging recording artists and groups.
The background music capability offers StrandVision Digital Signage subscribers more than 650 background music streams from 40+ categories. The copyright-cleared music is available 24/7 to accompany promotional messages or employee communications that are displayed by StrandVision subscribers.
Aspiring artists can arrange to have their music added to the mix at StrandVision’s servers. The selections are offered on the music menu and StrandVision subscribers can add the artist’s music to their custom music streams. As an added benefit, a promotional image and contact information for the artist is automatically added to the local digital signage display as the selection is being played. If you’d like to hear more about StrandVision’s digital signage, please visit www.StrandVision.com or call 715-235-7446 (SIGN).
Common failure points – Outdoor Displays
Given digital displays face perpendicular to the ground, sunrise and sunset are the worst times of day, whereas high noon will not affect the screen much at all. Sunlight is also harsher in winter, when skies are clearer. LCDs are not created equal. Some will lose 10 to 12 per cent of their brightness each year. A display that is designed for the direct sun load and can maintain its brightness over time is substantially preferable.
