ITS provides a service that enables central management of digital signs.
Digital signage helps departments distribute information in an engaging, interactive manner using large format displays. The target audience primarily are visitors to the campus, including prospective students and parents. Current students, faculty, and staff can also benefit from having easy access to campus events and news. Digital signs can have touch interactivity or be non-interactive and still display dynamic content.
UConn is leveraging Carousel digital signage management software from Tightrope. This suite enables central or departmental management of signage. Departments may also share their content with others, if they choose to do so. The UConn digital signage implementation includes campus templates designed by University Communications and includes integration with Office 365, Astra classroom scheduling, Everbridge emergency notifications, and EMS event scheduling.
Departments/units can purchase and manage signage to meet the needs of their area. Academic IT staff can assist with selecting displays and players and can coordinate with an approved AV vendor for a quote, scope of work, and installation. You can also use the Digital Signage User Access form to request and manage permission to post and edit content posted on the screens.
ITS supports 15 monitors in academic buildings on the Storrs campus. Anyone with a NetID may submit content via the Digital Signage Media Submission form to be posted on these screens. Please note: Submissions are reviewed before posted.
