With the spring semester fully underway, students across the nation are preparing for their graduation! Once all the projects have been turned in and tests have been taken, celebrations will sweep across all universities as students and their families applaud their commencement. Such a monumental moment needs the attention and reverence it deserves. That is where digital signage comes in to help! Many universities have limited spots for commencement ceremonies, and oftentimes, not everyone can attend the ceremony due to external reasons. But with live stream digital signage integrations, you can ensure no one misses a moment of the celebration! 

If you are content streaming or streaming over the internet, you can utilize any of the players you have installed. The only step you will need to perform to ensure connectivity is making sure your players are updated with our software version 4.7. After updating your signage software, you can begin implementing your live streaming capabilities. For an in-depth setup guide, reach out to your account manager for our Live Streaming Application guide. This article will give you the general information you need as well as the benefits of streaming your commencement. Haven’t started your digital signage journey yet?

When it comes to your university’s graduation ceremony, live streaming the event comes with a host of benefits. Many schools allot a certain amount of tickets for students to give to friends and family wishing to attend. This drastically limits the amount of people who can see their family members graduate. With digital signage, you do not have to limit anyone’s access to the celebration! Signage displays around the school and surrounding area can be outfitted with internet live streaming capabilities to ensure everyone is included. Whether it’s on-campus signage or even surrounding restaurants and bars, any place is capable of using the stream link and implementing it into their displays. This builds a greater sense of community around students and their families, and demonstrates a sense of care from the school. This can create long-lasting relationships between the university and its alumni community, resulting in potentially greater revenue or more students attending in the future!



As stated previously, you must ensure all players you wish to stream your software on are updated to signage version 4.7. Once you have your hardware and software updated, you can begin the process of integrating your live stream setups. Many popular integrations utilize our Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, or Youtube streaming capabilities, but it doesn’t stop there! If you have a VLC, RTP, RTSP, or other type of stream connection, you can set those up as well! If the software you are using does not have a Stream Key or Stream Server URL, you can still contact your account manager or our support team to help find alternative ways to get your stream live. Regardless of how you want to implement your stream, REACH will work with you to ensure everyone has a chance to view the commencement!


Many graduations will begin taking place around the middle of May. With that in mind, we HIGHLY recommend reaching out to your account manager now if setting up a graduation live stream is something you would be interested in. While the process itself should not take too long, we do like having time to test the connection and ensure stable connectivity. Additionally, if any issues arise in that time, our support team can quickly sort them out. For more information, click the button below!
