StrandVision Offers Google and Outlook Calendars on Digital Signs

Automatically collect and display calendar items from Outlook and Google Calendars directly on your digital media players

The Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook calendar feature is a configurable free option. Once set up, the system automatically shows the event name, time and location across the designated StrandVision Digital Signage displays. The Google and Outlook Calendar feature eliminates the need for administrators to reenter meeting information that they want to display over their networks. As the meeting is added or updated in the calendar, it automatically updates the StrandVision Digital Signage server cloud, which updates the digital signage content shown on the digital media player screens.

The free digital signage feature is a valuable addition for schools and colleges, hotels, conference centers, nursing homes, clubs and associations – any organization that can use digital signs to promote its meetings or events.

Set up is easy. Users simply create an RSS feed from their Outlook Calendar to StrandVision through a Google Calendar bridge. They then select the display criteria (current day, week or other parameter), and create a StrandVision Digital Signage page to display the information. The page is added to the digital signage content page rotation. The digital signage calendar is updated hourly as events are added to or removed from the Google or Outlook calendar.
