Digital signage refers to displaying content (such as slideshows, videos, and advertisements) on a digital display. Content can be rotated automatically or manually updated. TVs are generally used for digital signage on campus.
Using a Chromebit for Digital Signage
A Chromebit is a dongle running Google’s Chrome OS operating system. When placed in the HDMI port of a television or a monitor, this device turns that display into a personal computer. Chromebit allows adding a keyboard or mouse over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Chromebits are used across campus to display digital signage content in a variety of ways; for example, using Google Slides to run a looping slideshow.
