As Dan Viau reports, ScreenScape is a do-it-yourself Internet service that helps businesses, even those with little computer expertise, to create sophisticated digital displays that can be published online. ScreenScape gives its members the option of sharing display content with other members of the service. In Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where the company was founded, the ScreenScape Community already consists of liquor stores, shopping malls, restaurants, bars, recreational facilities, tourism operations, and store fronts.

"What ScreenScape is doing is completely unique in the world." says ScreenScape founder, Mark Hemphill. "While digital signage networks have been around for some time, we are the first to offer a truly community-based approach. The ScreenScape Community in Charlottetown is an excellent example of how ScreenScape can be used to connect independent sites to encourage cross-marketing and foster collaboration on a regional basis."

After just 9 months in the marketplace, the ScreenScape Community is spreading. ScreenScape now has a presence in more than a dozen countries worldwide.

ScreenScape offers basic memberships, suitable for a small business, at only $9.99 per month. ScreenScape also allows network operators to set up group licenses to create large-scale digital signage networks that span organizational boundaries. A Group License provides the network operator with a centralized means of distributing content to all members within their group on an ongoing basis.
