Digital signage is a way of electronically displaying information on a screen. They can be found in public spaces, transportation systems, museums, stadiums, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and corporate buildings etc., to provide wayfinding, exhibitions, marketing, and outdoor advertising.
About Digital Signage
Digital Signage helps departments distribute information in an engaging, interactive manner using large format displays. The target audience primarily are visitors to the campus, including prospective students and parents. Current students, faculty, and staff can also benefit from having easy access to campus events and news. Digital signs can have touch interactivity or be non-interactive, but still display dynamic content.
The University of Nebraska is leveraging digital signage management software from Four Winds Interactive. This management suite allows departments to control all of their distributed signs from a central location. It also allows departments to share their content with others, if they choose to do so. The NU digital signage implementation includes campus templates designed by University Communications to complement the Web Framework.
