MTSS is offering a Digital Signage Server Service using Axis TV from Visix. The service allows Schools and Departments to manage data content on digital displays on campus. Content can be published or updated by authorized content providers via an easy to use web interface. Account permissions are assigned so that users only have write access to the displays that they are responsible for within their School or Department. Separate channels and zones can be defined so that content displayed is tailored for specific audiences.
The TCNJ Digital Signage Proposal contains information on usage of digital signage on campus.
