StrandVision adds local streaming video option

Allows cable, satellite, DVD/VCR and camera content to be integrated into StrandVision digital signs…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – July 26, 2006 – StrandVision LLC (www.strandvision.com), a provider of Internet-based digital signage services, today announced an optional local video capability for its digital signage systems. The option enables administrators to add local streaming content, including feeds from cable, satellite and DVD/VCR, as well as video and Web cameras, to enhance their digital signage networks.

The local content can be shown as a window in the display screen or as a full-screen presentation. When combined with other StrandVision features, such as scheduling and location-specific programming, the local streaming video option provides a flexible solution that integrates ad hoc video feeds with recurring digital signage content. StrandVision’s local video option can even be set up to suspend regular digital signage messages during specific times of the day to allow viewing of scheduled video programs.

“Local video is another enhancement that gives greater flexibility to StrandVision’s digital signage solutions,” explained Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “It will be a valuable addition, especially for schools, businesses and churches – any organization that requires the flexibility to distribute externally sourced content over its existing digital signage network to their patrons.”

The local streaming video option for StrandVision Digital Signage networks, which is priced at $29.95/mo. per delivered location, requires an MSI Vox (or other Microsoft Windows compatible) video capture device (sold separately). The service is available immediately to StrandVision signage subscribers.
