StrandVision Enhances Viewers' Experiences with Digital Signage Content Trivia Facts and Questions

Extends pre-packaged digital signage content offerings that include news, weather, background music…

MENOMONIE, Wis. - June 25, 2014 - StrandVision Digital Signage today announced that it is adding a new, no-cost, trivia library to its electronic signage offerings. The trivia is organized by topics, such as sports, food, animals, plants, hobbies - scores of different categories - and randomly presented as either "factoid" statements and/or trivia questions.


"We're offering hundreds of prepared trivia questions and factoids to help make the wait worthwhile for viewers of our customers' StrandVision Digital Signage networks," commented Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. "These little mind game diversions engage viewers, draw the StrandVision Digital Signage presentations into conversations of waiting customers or employees and enhance overall message delivery."

Factoid or Trivia

StrandVision customers can add trivia pages to their electronic signage mix with a few clicks. Administrators simply select the presentation format and topics to display and StrandVision cloud servers handle the rest. The trivia is presented as either a statement or as a multiple choice question that offers the answers and then, every few seconds, removes one of the incorrect answers until only the correct response is ultimately displayed. The trivia pages are interspersed with the regular signage content according to an administrator-defined frequency. Topics and formats can easily be added or changed at any time.

This free digital signage trivia feature joins a number of StrandVision-provided content streams that add to the digital signage viewing experience. Other content streams include: background music, famous artwork, news and weather with radar, as well as industry-specific feeds, such as banking videos. StrandVision Digital Signage also accepts and processes customer-specified Web pages and RSS feeds to offer virtually unlimited information sources.

"We're having fun with this one by learning lots of new random things to babble about at the retirement home. We're sure that our subscribers and their viewers will enjoy it too - although they stand the risk of being the know-it-all at cocktail parties," joked Strand.

The no-cost trivia pages are available immediately to StrandVision subscribers. The feature has been added as a new page type in the "Modify Pages" section of their Content Management System (CMS) portal.
