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.
There are several options currently available for configuring digital signage, depending on budget and project requirements.
- Flat-panel TV with a content device (Lenovo mini-desktop computer, Raspberry Pi computer, etc)
- AMX Inspired Signage – this line of products is an IP (internet/networked) solution where content can be pushed over the network to boxes hooked up to TVs or other displays (TVs, video walls, monitors, etc).
- Cable TV network – several channels on the cable network are set aside for streaming video content. A laptop computer can be connected to a transmitter and modulated onto the CATV network. Digital signage content is broadcasted this way in the law and business schools.
