StrandVision Debuts Smart Phone Digital Signage Status Monitoring

Stoplight icons give electronic signage administrators easy, instant updates at a glance…

MENOMONIE, Wis. – Aug. 20, 2013 – StrandVision Digital Signage, today announced an innovative digital signage utility that enables electronic sign administrators to monitor the status of their StrandVision Digital Signage networks via a desktop PC or a smart phone from anywhere and at any time.

The new notification utility employs familiar and easily understood stoplight icons to indicate overall and individual digital media player status. Green obviously signals normal operations; Yellow indicates a potential problem that usually has not yet affected signage operation; Red indicates a communication or player issue that has put the digital media player in automatic recovery mode while it waits for updates.

“StrandVision Digital Signage’s patented delivery system is rock solid but occasionally there are Internet or in-building distribution, power or media player issues,” commented Mike Strand StrandVision founder and CEO. “This new dashboard provides an instant snapshot of any digital media player that may be powered down or has rebooted due to a Microsoft update. Our smart phone utility lets administrators keep an eye on things to immediately address the situation and confirm the recovery results.”

Remote Monitoring – Instant Response
Administrators can easily see the signage status at a glance and drill down as necessary. The free smart phone monitoring utility is especially helpful for administrators of multiple digital signage networks. In that case, the top level stoplight indicates if there is an issue with any player in the system. Administrators are then able to drill down through the individual networks to zero in on the specific digital signage player at issue. Specific details for any electronic sign player can be seen by clicking on the appropriate stoplight.
This new capability supplements StrandVision’s automatic email notification system that sends status notifications to administrators and/or designated technical staff.

“This is another example of a customer request being translated into a free digital signage feature,” said Strand. “In this case, the administrator of a major Midwest hospital network mentioned that he would like to be able to remotely check on the status of their digital signage network from his phone and we knew that others could benefit from such a smart phone notification utility.”

The free StrandVision Digital Signage smart phone utility is available immediately to registered subscribers. Subscribers simply log onto their online accounts at the StrandVision portal at www.StrandVision.com select “Your Account” and then the “Snapshot” option.
