Q&A (30 minutes)



Here are some digital signage content management how-tos. All of these subjects can be covered in a training session with the Digital Signage Coordinator, though self-guided learning is also encouraged.

These are available as guides to help you manage your digital signage.

Getting started

Logging in

Navigating TelemetryTV

Creating content

TelemetryTV supports three main content formats: static images, videos and dynamic content via Apps (i.e., video stream via YouTube link, social media feed, local weather feed, etc.).

You have two ways to create content for your digital signage: either outside of TelemetryTV (import content into TelemetryTV) or within TelemetryTV (create content entirely within TelemetryTV). 

Any content created for digital signage, within or outside of TelemetryTV, must adhere to digital signage program and content standards.

Creating content outside of TelemetryTV

Creating content entirely within TelemetryTV

Canva is a third-party graphic design tool that is not managed by TelemetryTV or UVic. Using Canva to create digital signage content is optional.

You require an account to log into Canva. If you’re creating a Canva account for the first time to manage your digital signage, use your preferred work email address but do not use your Netlink passphrase. Never use your Netlink passphrase to log in to a service that is not managed by UVic.
