Digital Signage : Background in Education

Elementary and high schools, as well as post graduate universities, are turning to digital signage as an exciting and technologically-oriented way to build community and communicate important academic information throughout buildings and campuses and across districts. Designed to supplement traditional communications, such as daily announcements and poster boards, the digital signs provide school communication that is timely and efficient. They can also be used as part of a comprehensive emergency notification system that overrides normal programming.

The digital signs provide student marketing with constant updates and reminders of daily announcements to using text, photos and video. Student government and groups can do student marketing and parent communication to publicize meetings and events. Students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors can check back throughout the day for the latest time and location information. School cummincation is supplemented by digital signs that can be placed in dining areas, lounges and hallways. The StrandVision Digital Signage system can send different school marketing messages to different locations, such as faculty and/or administrator break rooms, with messages targeted to administrative matters.


StrandVision Digital Signage offers a free digital signage software trial account for education. This includes sample content templates and personalized assistance to get your network up and running.
