Enterprise Digital Signage

Overview

Computing Services and Systems Development offers Enterprise Digital Signage to help University departments create and manage the content that is displayed on their digital signs. The software enables content administrators to publish almost any type of content: video, Web sites, PowerPoint slides, maps, Twitter feeds, live data, PDFs, and more. Signs located in different buildings can be managed from one location, and one department can easily share and display its content on another department's sign to facilitate collaboration and communication across the University. Emergency alerts can also be displayed on enterprise digital signs by the Pitt Police in the event of a campus emergency. Computing Services and Systems Development provides consulting to departments to help them determine what hardware will best meet their signage needs and also provides training to individuals who will be managing their department's signs.

Cost

The cost of Enterprise Digital Signage depends on how many content players you plan to use. A content player is the machine used to drive the display of your signs. There is a one-time cost of $700 per content player. There is also a recurring annual maintenance cost of $100 per content player, but this charge does not take effect until July 2015.
