Some 300 CoolSign media players drive the digital signage content
The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Montreal, Canada has extended its use of Haivision's digital signage solution to communicate with staff, visitors and some 50,000 students.
A single administrative centre controls content across screens in multiple locations across the campus and is driven by 300 of the company's CoolSign media players.
Haivision operates a fixed-fee system within its Campus Signage Unlimited programme, which it says makes the investment 'economically attractive' for the university. Its DataWatcher system also allows operators to incorporate information from external data sources, such as databases and XML files. Students can also use Content Creator and Network Manager to generate and submit content, and the university aims to expand the network to include operability from mobile devices.
"Establishing an efficient centralised communication system connecting campuses was both a priority and, given the university's extensive geographic and demographic network, a real challenge," comments the university's senior systems analyst, Wilson Lo.
"We knew from experience that the university needed a system that would enable delivery of emergency warning messages when they matter most. We also wanted a solution that would support daily provisioning of UBC content to our staff and students across all UBC campuses."
