The UVic Digital Signage Program is now launched! Learn about this new central network of connected displays on campus. 

What is digital signage?

Digital signage refers to the public-area flat-panel displays on campus used specifically for the distribution of information and strategic messaging to the on-campus community. 

What is the digital signage program?

Our new digital signage program brings together all public area television displays (new and existing) across campus into a shared content management system called CoolSign. This central network allows all campus units to engage with our audiences better.

This network provides a campus-wide communication tool and a supplement to emergency alerts. It also creates a new outreach opportunity for units. 

Benefits of a centralized network

This digital signage benefits the UVic campus community in the following ways:

  • Provides faculty, researchers, staff and students with a digital signage platform to communicate engaging departmental messaging to students, colleagues and people on campus.
  • Provides the university with an extensive, connected network of digital signage to push consistent and unified strategic UVic material.
  • Provides the university with an efficient centralized communication system for emergency messaging.
  • Provides UVic units with a supported solution, cost-shared program and additional support services for digital signage.
  • Elevates the overall perception of the university to current and prospective students as a university that leverages and welcomes the benefits of new technology.
  • Allows viewers to interact with the UVic identity using a digital medium.
  • Offers departments flexibility in the types of messaging formats, both static and dynamic (photos, movie files, animations, live streaming, dynamic web content, rss feeds, etc.).
  • Allows for strategic implementation of information on campus (information can be segmented and published to the areas of campus where it is most applicable).
