Why Digital Signage?

Media Library & Playlist

The Media Library and Playlist applications are the most used apps for all digital signage needs, and the two go hand-in-hand in terms of functionality. The Media Library is not only where you store assets, but also where you can create original content using the in-house announcement editor or through Canva integration. The Playlist app then allows you to arrange your assets to play in any order of your choosing.

The result is a constant flow of information that keeps your content rotation fresh and exciting. With these two applications, you can convey a large amount of material succinctly and efficiently.

Social Media Apps

Social media has become a mainstay for students to share their lives and interact with peers. Similarly, schools can use social media to reach their student body through platforms they are familiar with. This will increase the relatability of the school, drawing in more students and strengthening their attachment. With proper integration, social media can be used to spread information and interact with students. More and more parents are also joining social media, making these platforms an excellent tool for keeping them in the loop.

Video Streaming

Streaming is a growing method of consuming content as the online space continues to expand. Movies, music, and video games can all be streamed, and that list continues to grow. With digital signage, video streaming offers a way to reach a wider audience and accommodate those who cannot attend certain events.

Video streaming grants a great deal of flexibility in terms of what can be displayed. From guest speakers to theater productions, video streaming provides a way to make sure school events reach their highest potential.

Emergency Alerts

Even more so than educating, schools have the responsibility of guaranteeing the safety of both their students and staff. Strategically placed digital signage can help ensure safety for everyone by grabbing their attention and instructing them on proper protocol.

Emergency alerts can be tailored for any scenario to avoid confusion when put into effect. The result is a safer campus that takes active steps to prevent danger.
