Digital signage is a technology that will allow you to post information that you would traditionally put on a bulletin board on a digital display. You can display one unique content feed to any number of screens, or several unique content feeds to multiple screens.

Configuring your displays and computer hardware may require networking services from Telecommunication and Network Services.

There are two services on campus for Digital Signage, Drupal (free solution) and AxisTV (paid solution).  Depending on your needs, one service might work better for you than another.  Click here to compare each service offerings
