Specifications for central content

The central content playlist is available to our university community to assist in the promotion of events and activities occurring within or outside the campus involving our faculty, students, staff and community members.

Some examples of appropriate content:

  • UVic sponsored events and activity promotion that is free of charge
  • Campus-wide information, announcements, updates and news

In order to be eligible for central content*, submissions must: 

  • adhere to digital signage design guidelines
  • be relevant to the overall campus community (open to all)
  • be consistent with UVic’s mission and values as outlined in the Strategic Framework
  • be submitted as a 1920x1080 JPEG for static content
  • be submitted as a 1080p mp4 or webm for video content (Videos must have no audio and should be no more than 15 seconds in duration)

Design templates are available for use here.

*Acceptance is not guaranteed. Even if your slide meets these content specifications, it may not be added into central content during periods of high content volume. Each unit can run a maximum of two slides at any given time.

Are there restrictions on slide content?

Yes. The following are not acceptable:

  • Commercial content and/or third-party advertising (content should not include prices/fees)
  • Non-university sponsored events and initiatives
  • Political advocacy or the promotion of political events

The University of Victoria reserves the right to delete content that violates UVic’s policy on Responsible Use of Information Technology Services, privacy or other legislation, or the terms of these guidelines.

These guidelines have been created in compliance with and will adhere to the UVic Events Calendar guidelines and Campus poster policy.
