StrandVision Offers Preconfigured Linux Point-of-Display Digital Signage Player

Company continues its complimentary Summer of Digital Signage promotion…

MENOMONIE, Wis. - StrandVision LLC today introduced an optional preconfigured, point-of-display Linux player for use with its digital signage system. The compact appliance can be mounted at or behind a flat screen digital signage display to ease deployment and administration.

“We have received many requests from our reseller/installer partners and from customers for this type of unit,” explained Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “Now, customers have the option to buy fully-configured plug-and-play player/display appliances that make deployment a snap.”

When using the StrandVision Linux Player, users simply connect the large format display to the VGA or HDMI output on the player, connect the unit to the Internet and enter their username and password. The Linux player automatically finds and logs onto the StrandVision service in the Cloud and after initializing the system, begins the signage playback.

The StrandVision digital signage appliance is based on a compact, powerful MediaWave HD Linux personal computer unit. The unit, which measures 7-1/8” x 6-1/2” x 2-1/2”, features an Intel Pentium T4400 2.2GHz Dual-Core mobile processor, 1MB CPU, 1GB DDR2 memory, a 160GB SATA hard drive and SUSE Linux. It is covered by a manufacturer’s return-to-depot one-year parts and labor warranty.

Available immediately directly from StrandVision and through authorized resellers.

Free Microsoft-based signage still available
StrandVision customers can continue to use off-the-shelf Microsoft Windows-based personal computers for their deployments if they do not opt to purchase the Linux player. Using an existing personal computer is an especially attractive way to be introduced to StrandVision Digital Signage since the company is offering full-featured StrandVision Digital Signage subscriptions for free. This limited time offer is available to everyone who simply registers on StrandVision’s website at the Summer of Digital Signage Giveaway program page.
