There are two types of digital signs:
Electronic displays presenting news, advertisements and other information
Interactive touchscreens and kiosks allowing users to interact to find directions, access staff directories and more
Due to recent price drops for large plasma and LCD screens and the prominence of the Internet and social media, digital signage is becoming very popular as both an information provision and a wayfinding tool.
The ITS Digital Signage Service employs industry-leading Four Winds Interactive software to let you:
Present a wide variety of media, from text and images to animations, video and audio
Display any content that you have created for the Internet or television, including live updating Web pages
Provide enterprise-wide communications using rich media, such as streaming video, in combination with other media
Present live and timely updates via the network, adapting to specific situations dynamically
Allow the university emergency alert system to provide alert messaging on your displays via RSS feed
Develop applications to let users interact with your information, moving through maps, building or department directories, and more
Shared digital signage infrastructure and centrally managed media content make this technology a strategic university asset, aligning its adoption with NextGen Michigan strategic goals.
