GH Brooks takes news stream video display

Published:  21 September, 2011

HARROGATE: Builders' merchant GH Brooks is one of first businesses to take a live newsfeed for public display from Harrogate-News.

The local newspaper is working with VIDA Media to provide news stories streamed directly to media displays in and around Harrogate.

The displays carry a range of information that is configurable for each display, but typically includes company information for where the display is installed and advertising.Headline news stories will now be streamed from the Harrogate-News website to the displays too.

VIDA displays are being installed in various business premises throughout Harrogate, including Indulge on Hornbeam Park, the builders' merchants GH Brooks and the railway station.

Tim Cook, Harrogate News editor, said: "Embracing new technology has always been at the forefront of the Harrogate-News website and having an additional and growing channel to connect to the general public is a very welcome addition.

"We always aim to be very immediate with stories and especially when there is a level of urgency with a news item – these displays will be especially useful for traffic incidents and urgent police appeals."
