Updates to Digital Signage

ITS offers Carousel Digital Signage service for the University that includes both large signs, frequently displayed in lobbies, and smaller room signs.  Our vendor announced that their on-premise system would be end-of-life by 2022, at which time our existing service would stop receiving updates.  In response, ITS elected to migrate our content and customers to Carousel’s cloud offering.  The immediate benefits of this transition are improvements to the templates, direct integration of content from YouTube and social media outlets, compatibility with more players, an easier set up process, and continuous vendor updates.  This change best positions our community to enjoy continued service as well as to receive future vendor enhancements, such as interactive room signs.  Additional information about using Carousel Cloud is available on the Knowledge Base.
