StrandVision Offers Custom Programming to Integrate Corporate Live Data Into StrandVision Digital Signage
Menomonie, Wis. (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Virtually any live business marketing, manufacturing or other data can be displayed on StrandVision Digital Signage.
StrandVision Digital Signage today announced a custom programming service that enables its customers to automatically import virtually any live data feed into its digital signage display. Dynamic business marketing information, manufacturing production or safety performance information, bank interest rates or stock prices, or even conference room listings in hotels can be automatically updated, formatted and displayed through the StrandVision Digital Signage software.
The process begins with a free digital signage consultation with a StrandVision engineer that explores StrandVisions free pre-packaged, built-in database and RSS feed integration capabilities. If the solutions that are included with the standard StrandVision Digital Signage service are not appropriate, the engineer will discuss alternative, custom FTP, XML, HTML or other data access programming approaches.
The StrandVision engineer will then work with the customers IT staff on an hourly basis to develop the interface that will conform to the customers data security protocols. StrandVision will also design a custom template to display the information as part of the customers page mix.
This service makes StrandVision Digital Signage even more flexible and valuable since it eliminates the need to manually update frequently changing live data, said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. Weve built a lot of the hooks into our software so we can efficiently and cost-effectively develop these custom data feeds quickly. Its the fastest way to securely access corporate data for display on one digital signage player or a worldwide deployment of digital signage screens.
The custom data feed service is available immediately. The initial consultation is free. Development programming is on an hourly basis; typical development projects take only a few hours and often are under one hour.

Why Is A Simple Web Experience Necessary?
When people are browsing the web they are choosing and deciding which information on your website is relevant in milliseconds. If you haven’t laid out your website in a way that’s simple and easy to use in “hyper-speed” – they are going to click away and lose interest – it’s all about fast navigation to relevant information. You’ve got the grab their attention before they lose interest and click away and go to someone else.
- People browse the web FAST
- Simple and Easy-to-Navigate sites yield better results
Using Video To Simplify The Experience
A way that you can simplify the web experience is using video – everyone browsing online when confronted with the option of navigating menus, reading text, or clicking on a video window with a big play button in the middle are going to click on that play button because it requires much less effort to digest the information.
- Video is simpler to understand
- Video is easier to digest
- People prefer video to text
The good thing about video is that once they’ve pressed play if forces them into real-time interaction with your website. Customers aren’t frantically clicking on as many links as possible trying to find the right information – it forces them into real-time and it summaries and personifies your business in a way that graphics, text an image can’t do as well.
With web video production you can not only summarise your website and your services, but also you can direct action. At the end of it you can bring up phone numbers, point to different links on your sites -you can route and direct the traffic on your website through calls to action in the video.
Keep it under 1min30s and people are going to react, and respond to the video, because there’s no effort required in watching it. You can also actually entertain them while watching.
Video offers a much simpler customer experience, and you’ll see the benefits of using it straight away, in bounce rates, conversions and more.

Here’s an honest summary of video productions companies in terms of pricing.
Promotional Video Production is a varied beast. It can be cheap, it can be expensive, so here’s an overview of what to expect in terms of levels of service and prices. The demo costs given below are using an example video, lets say a 2 minute overview of your business and its services.
Consider this: To buy a camera prices start at about £200, and go all the way up to £40,000. This is oddly an exact model of video production industry, with some ‘providers’ starting at £200/video, and capital city providers going up to £40,000 for DVD promos, television advertising etc. It’s pretty intangible, but the difference between these providers in terms of delivering a video is only one thing: QUALITY.
1. Self-produced. Cost £0-20.
We’ve all got a video camera in some form, so we can make the video ourselves, right?
Of course, you can do whatever you want! Just make sure you use a tripod and don’t try to put any sound over it! (trust us)
2. Freelance Cameraman. Cost £500-1000.
Freelancers are experienced and cheery, and there are plenty of them about. They deliver well on price, and may give you a reasonable service. The problem is there is no guarantee of quality, and with so many outdated cameras and inefficient techniques and equipment out there, as well as no certainty that they can deliver to a professional standard, it can be risky to use them and you might be disappointed with the final video. It might not be polished, and it may look ugly. Be sure to check the cameraman’s showreel first and look carefully at the details of the video for things which could look better.
3. Local Video Production Company. Cost £2,000 to £4,000.
For those who want more a guarantee of quality, a local video production or design company is an option. Often however they have no video production unit in-house, and they outsource the work to the very same freelancers in option 2, while you pay the extra for the guarantee that the video will be to a professional standard. The video will look good, but will not look like the films you see in the cinema or the television adverts for the big brands, it will look more like when you see an ad for carpets (or something). Not bad, but not the best.
4. Capital City Production Company. Cost £10,000 to £30,000.
Wow, big price jump, right? That’s because you’ll be buying the services of much larger crews, London overheads, models, presenters, and the rest. This is the best in terms of quality, but obviously requires a massive budget, which many businesses can’t afford or risk.
That’s really the only kinds of categories that exist and the prices between all of these will vary from company to company, but we might as well draw your attention now to our Online Video Production Services at Platinum Media for (in our humble opinion) the best option.
5. Platinum Media. Cost £1,750 to £2,250.
Undercutting and outperforming our competitors is our number one goal. For low cost, high quality video, consider us as an option.
We maintain low overheads and cut the production fat, while NEVER compromising quality, in fact, while BOOSTING quality.
We use new technology to achieve superior video results, the crux being our Super-HD video cameras.
