StrandVision Debuts On-premise Digital Signage Server

Publish date:

StrandVision LLC introduced a hardware/software On-premise Distribution Server to complement its Software as a Service (SaaS) digital signage delivery model. The On-premise Server addresses specific security, bandwidth and network control criteria requested by some organizations.

The On-premise Server communicates with the StrandVision Digital Signage production servers in the Cloud and manages the internal distribution of signage pages to individual displays over the customer’s Local Area Network (LAN) and/or Wide Area Network (WAN). It is typically managed by internal IT staff while day-to-day digital signage content management remains the same with non-technical administrators.

“StrandVision On-premise Servers address the technical needs of our clients while also delivering substantial cost benefits to installations of more than ten screens,” said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “On-premise Servers reduce the number of displays that directly use our bandwidth so we pass these savings on.”

The StrandVision On-premise Server minimizes the traffic that passes through proxy servers and firewalls. All of the feeds that are inside the firewall are automatically consolidated by the On-premise Server. In addition, since the On-premise Server is automatically updated and requires no special firewall configuration, it makes it easier for customers to integrate digital signage into WANs for corporate and university campuses.

The On-premise Server approach is especially useful for digital signage installations that include video. The tremendous bandwidth demands are greatly reduced, which takes pressure off of the organization’s leased T1, T3 and other Internet connections while freeing up bandwidth for traffic from other applications, such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
