Video Tribute Plays in Solar-Powered Gravestones


Just when you think you’ve seen it all in video gadgetry, a company called Vidstone® brings out a new twist – video tribute gravestones. According to the The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review “More people don’t want just good words at the last rites, but an entertaining video of their life. Typical choice is an eight-minute digital presentation, what the film industry used to call a “short.” Family photos and home movie footage are combined for showing at the service and also over the Web to guests who can’t make it. The VIDSTONE Serenity Panel is attached to the stone monument. It uses solar power and a weatherproof LCD so a graveside visitor can press a button and see a 5-8 minute photo slide show of the deceased. The LCD panel can be attached to an upright or slanted grave site monument, including gravestones, mausoleums and columbariums.

Dying to make videos? Funeralone.com offers Memorial Webcasting. This service enables distant family and friends to see the funeral, memorial, and cemetery services on the Internet.
