StrandVision LLC today announced that Patent #7,685,259, entitled “Locally responsive kiosk signage from on-line source,” was granted on March 23, 2010 to Michael J. Strand, the company’s founder, president and CEO.
The patent covers displayed content of digital signage at distant locations that is at least partially controlled by a processor and database at a central location, according to a StrandVision release. The processing system collects, samples and evaluates general information to determine what specific information should be displayed on local signage.
This technology enables StrandVision to deliver its highly scalable and flexible Internet-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) digital signage service to viewers around the world. Customers are able to easily and efficiently direct specific, localized content to a digital signage display or group of displays using StrandVision’s Administrator Console. The system also provides for additional signage content to be selected by the server based on general parameters setup by the user.
StrandVision is licensing the patented technology to providers of distributed digital signage services.
