Digital Signage

Digital signage is the display of multimedia content on electronically controlled displays that are installed in public places. Content and messages can be changed dynamically, without modification to the physical sign, typically with the goal of delivering targeted messages to specific locations at specific times.

In the last few years, many signs using flat screens have been installed across the campus. These screens have great potential to deliver a variety of communications as digital signs. There are currently two capabilities of signs/flat screens on campus (some signs have both capabilities):

  • Digital Signs linked to Cisco software that display dynamic content as well as conference room/meeting space schedules.
  • Televisions, some of which can be adapted for video games, etc.
  • We anticipate that screens with a third capability will soon be installed on campus. For example, touch screen kiosks that allow users to call up information such as directions to a campus department or building.
