StrandVision Digital Signage today announced additional electronic sign background templates along with enhancements to the StrandVision service that allows subscribers to submit their own personalized backgrounds to create a consistent business marketing look across their digital signage network.
With the update, StrandVision now includes many standard background templates that are all automatically sized to the proper aspect ratio of standard TVs, widescreen flat panel displays and vertical orientations to fit the screen attached to the digital media player and its setup. Administrators can also change fonts, styles, colors and live clock viewing settings to fit their design needs, the company said.
In addition, StrandVision now offers its customers the option of submitting their own custom background templates. For a nominal charge, StrandVision said, the company converts PowerPoint, graphic, desktop publishing or animated flash files that are designed internally or by their marketing agency to the format used by StrandVision. Once installed to their account, the additional templates become available to the customer through a simple dropdown menu. Customers can submit multiple background templates for different company divisions, different target audiences or to reinforce special events, holidays or important upcoming dates.
"These background template choices allow StrandVision customers to keep their signage content fresh while having the ability to customize the look and feel to their exact specifications," StrandVision founder and CEO Mike Strand said in the announcement. "It's another enhancement that adds to the simplicity, flexibility and usability of the StrandVision Digital Signage Network."
StrandVision's free digital signage test drive has also been enhanced to further customize the look of digital signage content, the company said. Anonymous visitors can create their own custom electronic signage. Interested visitors who want to convert their personalized digital signage content to the full system and install on their own digital media player can also create functional 30-day demos just by entering their email address and password as the last step.
