More than 20 new monitors have been installed in around campus. They represent Maryville’s initial venture utilizing digital signage. These monitors allow information to be distributed efficiently and easily to students, visitors, faculty and staff. Designed to provide information about campus events, news, weather and resources, they can also provide late-breaking information regarding things like current events, weather situations and emergencies.
As an added benefit, digital signage is environmentally friendly. It reduces paper use across campus – a key goal of the University’s “paper less” initiative announced last year.
