MENOMONIE, Wis. – Oct. 22, 2009 – The University of Wisconsin-Stout has installed a digital signage software system from StrandVision LLC in its Millennium Hall technology services building.
The signage, displayed on 52-inch digital monitors, is in the building’s two main lobbies. It carries announcements, lab and help desk hours, a building directory and weather with Doppler radar, as well as a special Internet-based technology news feed.
The Learning & Information Technology staff selected StrandVision. “The decision was based on StrandVision’s Software as a Service (SaaS) model that minimizes hardware and networking investments and overhead, as well as day-to-day computer security and maintenance tasks,” said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO.
The system is hosted by StrandVision, and the pages are delivered directly to the UW-Stout digital signage system over the Internet.
StrandVision LLC delivers low-cost, Web-based Software as a Service (SaaS) digital signage through a patent-pending approach that delivers content to subscribers’ LCD and plasma displays, as well as computer screens and Web sites. StrandVision’s service distributes text and graphics pages, video content, and national and local weather and news. It is ideal for medical and dental offices (patient education), banks, retailers and industrial distributors (video merchandising), education (student, staff and visitor information), employee break rooms (events and benefits), non-profit and religious organizations (member and supporter communications), and other applications.
