StrandVision adds full video digital signage capabilities

Streaming video enhances digital sign content and advertising potentialÂ…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAS VEGAS – March 16, 2006 – StrandVision LLC (http://www.strandvision.com) of Eau Claire, Wis., a provider of Internet-based digital signage services, today announced full video capabilities for its digital signage system, here at the NSCA Expo. The low-cost option allows the flexibility to add, store and distribute video content. It does not require complex on-location setup since it uses Macromedia Flash Video technology. This is the third major StrandVision enhancement this year following announcements of a new digital signage player (www.strandvision.com/digital_signage_player_enhanced_new_server.html ) and advanced sign scheduler (www.strandvision.com/strandvision_digital_signage_scheduler.html).

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 personal computers in subscribers’ offices, lobbies and break rooms for showing over local computer monitor, flat screen or television displays. The Flash Video stream is updated via any Web browser and delivered in real time to provide uninterrupted full audio and video at single or multiple locations.

Customers can load their own Macromedia Flash Video files or turn to StrandVision or an authorized installer (www.strandvision.com/digital_signage_installers.html) for conversion services. StrandVision’s optional video conversion service provides one business day turnaround for most popular video formats, including QuickTime Movie (mov), Video for Windows (avi), MPEG Movie (mpg, mpeg), Digital Video (dv, dvi), and Windows Media (asf, wmv). StrandVision can also convert copyright-cleared VHS, SVHS, Mini-DV formats, CDs and DVDs.

Streaming video is a major enhancement for StrandVision,” said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “The capability, combined with our other flexible signage services, puts us on par with digital signage services that cost thousands of dollars more for equipment, services and maintenance fees. It is fully controllable by the customer and can be updated and distributed to hundreds of locations around the world virtually instantaneously. To our knowledge, there is no digital signage service that comes even close to StrandVision in terms of affordability, reliability and responsiveness.”
