Video Wall Adds a New Dimension for Schools

Why do 70% of schools and colleges install digital signage systems? Schools constantly communicate with students, teachers and the community. It’s easy to publish effective messages on a digital system, from the day’s cafeteria menu to emergency announcements.

Sun Prairie High School, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, recently installed a video wall outside the gymnasium comprised of four LCD displays. The wall showcases athletic/academic events and achievements.

“The display is quite stunning as you walk into our high school. We’re able to post messages that reach students and highlight our student-athletes in a very impressive way,” Eric Nee, CAA, Athletics and Activities Director.

Sun Prairie wanted to eliminate the gaps in their communication strategies and found a turnkey solution with Daktronics’ and ADFLOW Digital Messaging Systems (DMS). The video wall enables them to provide content students notice and relate to in real time.

Video walls
ADFLOW provides high schools and colleges exciting options for their communication strategies. Products include video walls, such as the one Sun Prairie installed. A video wall transforms an area into an engaging and informative digital platform. It’s a dramatic way to capture attention and updating content is easy.

Hallway Signage
Schools and colleges recognize a need for a more efficient and dynamic informational messaging. Digital signage throughout hallways and common areas make school messaging efficient.

Menu Boards and Kiosks
Digital signage can also extend to menu boards, touch kiosks and indoor/outdoor displays. Schools use these products to run a variety of content including directional messaging and visitor information. Outside of the school day they can be used near the concession stand for live game scores and footage, sponsor promotions, and upcoming events.

Why digital signage?

97% of students prefer a digital delivery of information. Digital is currently the definitive communication and entertainment technology. Seeing dynamic digital signage can elicit an emotional response that prompts people to act on the information. ADFLOW DMS enable schools to provide content students notice and relate to by running news, weather, Twitter and Instagram content.

Benefits to the school

The flexibility of digital signage enables schools to schedule based on time of day. For example, the school runs student-based content during school hours and event content on game nights. Unified messages can engage smaller audiences in key areas of the school, as well as reaching every school in a large district.  

Don’t overlook the power of curb appeal. Digital gives an up-to-date, modern look to schools and eliminates the cost of less effective paper signage and stickers.
