STATE COLLEGE, PA - February 20, 2012 - StoryTeller®, Interactive Touchscreen System created by AccuWeather, now complements AccuWeather's proven audience-building content to create digital signage networks that meet and exceed the interactive expectations of today's device-savvy audience.

StoryTeller is a fresh, lively, user-driven display that speaks directly to audiences because it allows the user to access information in a highly visual and interactive way. StoryTeller can be used as:

• An "info-finder" where users retrieve information their choosing via high-quality graphics, videos and other eye-catching formats.

• A "way-finder" to provide users with directions or additional information as a cost-effective and innovative solution to staffing needs.

"AccuWeather's StoryTeller is a perfect fit for public venues with kiosks," said Ryan Ayers, Vice President of Display Systems and Services at AccuWeather. "StoryTeller provides today's users with the interactivity they've come to expect when they approach signage to call up site-specific information."

Much more than just a touchscreen display, StoryTeller is an easy-to-use, robust system that includes numerous customizable applications that bring to life the display of information of all types and topics. StoryTeller can be seen at DSE in Las Vegas, February 27th and 28th at booth #936.
