METROCALL DIRECT VIEW FOR OFF-THE-BELT

ALEXANDRIA, Va.-Metrocall Inc. introduced Direct View, a paging service aimed at off-the-belt paging applications.

With Direct View, subscribers can equip an LED display sign with wireless capabilities so it can receive news, sports, stock data and other general messages sent via Metrocall’s network. In essence, the LED display becomes a large alphanumeric pager. Such signs are commonly located in banks, hotels and schools.

Customers desiring the Direct View service will need to equip such signs with Motorola Inc.’s CreataLink module, which receives the messages sent via the paging network.

A custom messaging component of the service allows users to page individual signs or groups of signs. Also, Metrocall has established a dedicated news service bureau that creates the custom content fed to Direct View customers.
