Digital Signage: Communicate with Staff, Students and Parents through digital screens and wayfinding
Digital Screens and Digital Signage is often everywhere you look in the modern world, whether you are in a train station or a café, you will often see screens advertising services often locally and nationally.
As an education facility, you may find the pressure on you to also look at implementing this technology to improve communication within your School, College, or University.
Digital Signage not only shows the world you are serious about promoting your message or brand, but it also gives you the opportunity to communicate with others, that you may not traditionally be able to reach via e-mail or other traditional communication methods.
Digital Signs can also support the facility if you happen to be short staffed, often supporting reception by avoiding unnecessary questions, displaying term dates, lesson times etc.
Some will also use this technology to showcase student work and to use it as a chance to praise students who have been successful.
It can also be used to bridge the gap between sites if you have multiple buildings.
A simple Digital Signage system has lots of features, most of which are explained in more detail here however, the main ones are the ability to schedule and plan content, to create multiple layouts and designs, as well as taking in external feeds from RSS, cameras etc.
Digital Signage can also be integrated with other technology such as:
– Wayfinding Touch Display
The screen will show a map of the building and a search box for locations, the user can simply tap in the location they wish to see, and the wayfinding system will show the path on the signage screen.
– Room Scheduling Software
The screen will show a floorplan, and show which rooms are free/available/booked and who is located within them, this is useful to be able to see at a glance which rooms may or may not be free.
– Emergency Alerting
If there is some sort of emergency within the building, such as a fire alarm, a terrorist alert or a person wishing to cause harm or damage to students an emergency mode can be activated, which can allow the screens to direct students to the nearest exit or safe place, it can also be configured to play audio messages out through the speakers in order to alert others
Signage could be integrated with an access control solution to show who is in a certain area or what areas are locked down
These are all special applications which can be provided if you have a project need for them.

Learning Aids – Video Conferencing Solutions
Video Conferencing has become more and more vital in recent years, especially considering that Covid19 forced many to adopt the technology even if it was out of their comfort zone.
In fact, the reality is, Video Conferencing is a technology investment that almost always makes complete sense. With fuel becoming more expensive and not to mention many organisations attempting to get to Net 0 emissions within their environmental policies, the desire to have the best experience possible is driving equipment sales.
With beamforming microphone technology and special framing cameras, the experience in a proper conferencing room is more like a face-to-face conversation, with volume being ‘normalised’ between noisy and quiet participants and a clear high definition image being available allowing you to observe your callers body language like never before.
