EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – Feb. 5, 2008 – StrandVision LLC, a provider of hosted digital signage services, today announced the ability to use its database feature to add photos with corresponding text in digital signage pages. The new capability, included in its “Streaming Video” package, is ideal for any business or organization that would benefit from showing a number of high-quality photos with captions and supporting text in its digital signs.
The StrandVision graphics database is a powerful feature that can spice up any digital signage page that can benefit from a photo or graphic. It is useful for many applications:
Essentially, any message that will be enhanced by a photo is an appropriate use for this new graphical database capability.
“The StrandVision graphics database enables users to easily create expanded-format graphical slides that are automatically added to the page mix,” said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “Now they can have dozens of different graphical pages moving through their mix randomly or in sequential order. We’re only now discovering the many creative ways that our customers are applying this capability. It’s a powerful enhancement that makes administration even easier and more versatile while presenting an interesting, ever changing digital signage presentation.”
The new StrandVision database enables users to simply add records in a table-formatted entry screen that includes unlimited text and photo caption fields. They can configure the entry screen by selecting from several different text styles and positions using dropdown menus. They can then add a photo to the record using a familiar “Browse and Select” feature that allows for the convenient uploading of the .JPG and .GIF graphics file formats from their computers. Users can add dozens, or even hundreds, of attractive photos to their StrandVision databases which are then automatically distributed to all playback locations by the system.
In playback mode, StrandVision accesses the database record and matches the photo directly to its related text. Records can be randomly or sequentially selected from the database to display with news, weather, photos, text and streaming video pages in the StrandVision Digital Signage page mix.
For instance, a real estate firm could create a series of databases for different sales price ranges ($100,000 to $150,000, $150,000 to $200,000, etc.). Each database can have hundreds of records. The various databases are then placed into the digital signage page mix. Each real estate listing, with the corresponding picture, then plays according to the display instructions set up by the account administrator.
