StrandVision Digital Signage Extends Electronic Sign World Weather Coverage

Free digital signage international weather service app available immediately to StrandVision signage network users…

MENOMONIE, Wis. – May 1, 2013 – StrandVision Digital Signage today announced that it has extended its free digital signage weather forecast service to its electronic signage customers around the world. This complements its weather service covering the United States that has been available as a free digital signage content option to customers since the company’s founding.

The StrandVision electronic sign network automatically formats and presents the weather information based on the geo-location of the physical screen as part of the normal electronic signage content page mix. The local weather condition and forecast information is updated hourly and automatically sent to all digital media players configured to use it. Customers with multiple licenses can present localized weather forecasts simply by activating the weather service option for their entire network or any user specified group.

The new weather service option, provided by World Weather Online (http://www.worldweatheronline.com), uses global positioning (GPS) information entered by the customer to deliver accurate, local, up-to-date weather reports. StrandVision automatically detects and enters this information into the customer’s account during the free digital signage software registration. Account administrators have the option of refining the GPS information in order to provide more accurate localized weather reports.

“We’ve provided the licensed free digital signage weather content for our United States customers since we started almost 10 years ago,” commented Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “However, as our customer base continues to expand internationally we decided to make the investment to provide localized electronic sign weather content around the globe. Now, we provide free digital signage weather content to all of our customers anywhere in the world, from Aruba to Zürich and everywhere in between, with a simple selection on our online electronic signage portal.”
