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.
Room Schedule Digital Signs
The standard room schedule digital sign is a ten inch Android tablet with touchscreen, running the FWI Booked application. This application works with Office365 and EMS room schedules. The tablet receives both power and network connectivity from a single Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enabled network port.
It can be mounted on the wall or on glass, at a standard height of 48 inches up from the floor to the top of the tablet for ADA compliance. No additional mount is required for wall installations; the device has its own flush wall mount. When mounted on glass, the tablet is positioned next to the glass frame, and the network cable exits the frame next to the tablet. A sticker or cover is placed on the back of the glass to hide the cable and back of the tablet.
Red and green side lights indicate whether the room is busy or available. Multiple rooms can be viewed with a quick glance.
The application interface options allow for the room to be reserved from the tablet or not. The room can also be in 'timeline only' mode.
The cost per room schedule sign is approximately $310 per sign. This amount varies depending on how many are ordered at once due to differing shipping costs. Each room sign will need a wired network port, which costs $225 per port for installation at UNL, plus a monthly fee of $4.30. Amounts may differ at other locations. The Learning Spaces AV Design and Build Team can provide a comprehensive quote for hardware, wire pull, and install labor if you'd like to use their services to have your signs installed for you.
