We have made a lot of progress since our “First Look” at the implementation of the digital signage all over Wayne State’s campus. Wayne State now has more than 25 digital signs mounted on walls in at least 16 buildings on campus. So far the feedback has been all positive and we are implementing different templates to fit the different need of each individual sign.
From our feedback, we recognized that weather, date and time should be on every sign somewhere within the display’s real estate. We have fed in Wayne State’s main news and events to the main WSU template via RSS. The last feature on the template we now have up and running is a place to promote Wayne State campus wide events and campaigns.
Check out the new design below:
The latest template we’ve completed is for the School of Business on a 2 x 2 digital television array. It also successfully feeds an HD steam of CNN and displays main campus and School of Business news and events. This set of 4 displays is broken up into 4 sections, containing the elements to keep a consistent look across the screens.
Here is the result:
The next steps after implementing the remaining main signage templates is to explore how to make our signs much more dynamic. We hope the newest designs are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and bring pertinent information to the campus wide community!
