MINNEAPOLIS February 21, 2019 — Exactly 47 days ahead of their home town playing host to the NCAA’s biggest annual basketball event, Screenfeed, the Digital Signage Content Store, announced their sports graphics product, Sports Central, will be getting in on all the madness sweeping the Twin Cities.
It comes but once a year – as soon as “Selection Sunday” rolls around on March 17th, it’s a safe assumption the collective consciousness of the U.S. will turn toward the uncertain fate of 68 collegiate basketball teams. In fact ESPN estimates about 70 million brackets are filled out ahead of the tournament – creating a nation-wide spike in the interest and demand for constant updates on the scores, results, and most important – the UPSETS!
It’s with that hometown hoops hysteria in mind that Screenfeed brings their sports content solution to the digital signage industry. Whether displayed as a companion visual experience with live broadcasts and in-game footage in sports bars or other entertainment venues, or as a silent solution to keep fans up-to-date during their day-jobs in the breakroom, Sports Central graphics are designed to grab attention in a variety of locations. In addition to the usual suite of graphics which preview, cover and recap individual game results (and more), subscribers will also be treated to Screenfeed’s custom-designed brackets – reporting scores and calling attention to upsets, down-to-the-wire finishes, and even the ever-dreaded “Bracket Busters.” Once teams are announced Sunday, March 17th, a preview graphic will be replaced with the full field of opening round matchups, and then updated as results roll in the following Thursday. Once the tourney is whittled down to 16 teams, the graphic will change over to a close-up view of the remaining bracket, and follow through until only the national champions remain on April 8th.
Screenfeed is offering tournament graphics for no additional charge to current subscribers of Sports Central, while new customers looking to capitalize on the event can sign up for the channel at its usual monthly rates as shown on the Digital Signage Content Store (http://www.screenfeed.com).
Again, while they admit to being pretty much useless in offering any insight into who to pick for your bracket’s final four, the team over at Screenfeed is feeling confident in delivering another year of solid tourney coverage here in 2019.
