While the Winter Olympics take place in Vancouver this month, networks can keep their viewers filled in using a free content feed provided by Screenfeed. Screenfeed is offering an updated medal count graphic that displays the top four medal-winning countries at the games and their hardware.
This medal count is updated throughout the day and can be delivered to networks using a variety of methods, including Flash (.swf), Media RSS or a JPEG, via a Web address. Network operators schedule the feed to play once and the medal count graphic will automatically update when displayed until a few days after the closing ceremonies.
To receive the feed, customers can fill out the request info form on Screenfeed's Web site, and they will be sent information on how to implement the feed within hours.
In addition to the medal count, Screenfeed offers coverage of the Winter Olympics within its Sports-in-Pictures news feed that pairs a high-resolution photo with a brief headline written specifically for digital signage. Along with several other content channels, Screenfeed will announce a new moderated Twitter feed at the Digital Signage Expo. Today's Top Tweets is an animated presentation of the most interesting and appropriate tweets of the day, every day. This feed will be available at no cost for a limited time beginning March 1.
