StrandVision Signs on to Distribute DataCall’s Live Feed Information Packages

Ensures copyright-cleared content for StrandVision Digital Signage customers…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – Nov. 28, 2006 – StrandVision LLC (www.strandvision.com), a provider of Internet-based digital signage services, and DataCall Technologies Inc., a news and information aggregator, today jointly announced that StrandVision has become a Strategic Partner. As a partner, StrandVision resells through its reseller channel and distributes DataCall’s information packages to its customers over its digital signage network.

DataCall information packages are copyright-cleared so StrandVision’s customers can be confident that the live feeds that they present over their digital signs are not only professionally packaged and up to date, but are also fully licensed. This removes the challenge of finding syndicated content for their signage systems and eliminates potential liability for presenting copyrighted materials. Also, DataCall and StrandVision certify their technical compatibility to ensure a smooth customer experience.

In commenting on the partnership, Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO, said, “Rich content that is updated frequently is clearly important to StrandVision’s customers. We want to complement our customers’ locally-sourced information with timely, attractively presented and accurate information. We also want to relieve them of the potential liability they may have by presenting material from unknown sources. The DataCall integration with our system addresses all of these needs by presenting a menu of copyright-cleared information feeds that are now available directly through StrandVision’s digital signage network.”

DataCall feeds can include:

  • Sports (All major sports, including breaking headlines and scores)
  • News (National, business, sports, entertainment, etc.) and Weather (Current conditions, forecasts and alerts)
  • Financial (U.S. and world market details and news highlights)
  • Traffic (Top 50 metropolitan areas)
  • Other information (Amber Alerts, horoscopes, trivia, etc.)

Added Jim Ammons, DataCall president, “As a news aggregator, we’re pleased to welcome StrandVision as a partner who is seamlessly integrating our content into their system. It is an up and coming company that is redefining the digital signage market. Its Internet-based digital signage delivery system is another efficient way for us to distribute our content and it is an easy way for StrandVision’s customers to add our service.”
DataCall’s Live Feed services are available immediately to StrandVision subscribers direct from StrandVision or through their local resellers/installers.

The team at DataCall has worked tirelessly in an effort to continually improve the delivery, security and variety of this information to the Digital Signage community, providing the most effective and complete live feeds in our industry.
