Screenfeed providing free NCAA tourney bracket for DS

Screenfeed, “The digital signage Content Store,” is providing a free, updating NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament bracket as content for digital signage networks, according to a company release.

The design of the bracket follows a theme of a sports fan who is eagerly following the tournament. As the tournament progresses the graphic will evolve. The design will be updated with advancements and scores, as well as additional “hand written” notes that are added like personal commentary to the fan’s bracket, such as, “Wow. I saw that one coming!”

The tournament bracket feed is automatically updated and is available in a variety of formats. The animated Flash version first shows the entire bracket and then zooms in to each bracket region for better viewing. A non-animated Flash version is available and additional delivery methods include a remote JPEG, media RSS feed and Web URL.

Due to the amount of information presented in the initial rounds, it is recommended the graphic be displayed full screen or in a large zone in environments where viewers are in closer proximity to the screen. As the tournament reaches the Final Four the graphic will update to focus on the later rounds and display information in a larger view.

A preview of the content is available on the Screenfeed Web site.¬†Any customer who fills out the request form on Screenfeed’s site will be sent information on how to implement the feed.
