EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – April 13, 2006 – StrandVision LLC (www.strandvision.com), a provider of Internet-based digital signage services, has introduced a new way to distribute company and benefits information, employee updates and other news of interest to employees. Delivered through computer displays or televisions located in manufacturing and dining areas, break rooms, or even fitness centers, StrandVision uses a familiar television format that is inexpensive and timely to develop, deploy and maintain.
StrandVision digital signs can be set up to play text slides and full motion video with or without audio. Content can be customized for one or several locations and can show different messages at different times of the day. StrandVision also provides local news and weather feeds, and can accommodate customized corporate information, such as a company stock ticker and news service.

Typical applications:

  • Employee benefits
  • Health & safety information
  • Emergency procedures
  • Production awards and recognition
  • Company news, sales results and stock ticker
  • Safety milestones (days between incidents updated automatically by the StrandVision system)
  • Upcoming events and holidays
  • Production performance
  • Activities and team schedules and scores
  • Customer satisfaction and training tips
  • Promotions
  • Certifications and other education accomplishments
  • Insurance enrollment notices
  • Product introductions
  • Rumor control
  • Sponsored advertising (insurance, local businesses, etc.)

StrandVision takes a radical new approach to digital signage. It hosts digital signs on its servers and delivers signage content over the Internet directly to subscribers’ offices, lobbies and break rooms for showing over local computer monitors, flat screens or television displays. It uses a familiar Web-based format to manage the digital slides so any authorized user, even non-technical administrative staff can provide the content.

“StrandVision Digital Signage is a very effective way to reach and motivate employees,” said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “Delivered through a universal medium, television, it is unobtrusive and gives employees an easy way to receive news. It provides an additional distribution medium or totally eliminates the time and expense of printing and distributing notices; it reaches every department in real time, and is passive -- employees don’t have to seek out the news. With StrandVision’s Web approach to digital signs, authorized HR, operations and local management can all easily contribute content.”

StrandVision Digital Signage for employee communications is available immediately from StrandVision and through a national network of resellers and installers. Pricing begins at $54.95/month per location with additional locations priced at $29.95/month (annual subscription rate). Installations require a high speed Internet connection and a personal computer with Web access to develop and/or receive content. A free trial is available at: http://www.strandvision.com/adduser.html.
