About this webinar

Digital signage is becoming ubiquitous in the school campus environment. From classroom door signage to cafeteria digital menu boards, display technology is quickly enabling a new generation of campus development to enhance the educational experience. A myriad of connectivity options is available, from IEEE 802.11 wireless networking to IEEE 802.3af/at Power-over-Ethernet.

When it comes to software architectures, one can choose from point-to-point push operation to cloud-based pull operation. There is no shortage of technologies and just as much confusion around them all. “When should which options be applied to what scenarios?” is a commonly asked question but a difficult one to answer.

This webinar touches on the most popular digital signage networking technologies, including both connectivity options and content management software networking architectures. A brief overview of each technology is provided, with benefits illustrated by on-campus digital signage applications. We will touch on room management signage, wayfinding solutions, digital menu boards, donor boards, video walls, video alarm systems, etc., and focus on the network connectivity and software options for each application scenario.

At the end of the webinar, the audience is expected to have a general understanding of popular digital signage network configurations and be able to deploy the best technology with ease.
