Tel Aviv, Israel – C-nario, a global provider of digital signage software solutions, today announced that the Bauman Moscow State Technical University (MSTU), one of Russia's leading engineering universities, and its oldest, has selected the company's digital signage platform, C-nario Messenger, for a new digital signage network serving thousands of applicants.
Croc, a leading Russian provider of information technology (IT) services and solutions, served as the prime contractor and implementer, according to the announcement.
The digital signage network is made up of 13 Panasonic 65-inch plasma displays. Ten are located in the various faculties. Two displays are located in the university's information zone and one near the applicant reception desk.
Special video content was created, explaining each faculty's activity, as well as increasing applicants' interest in scientific research conducted by the university. The digital signage network is also integrated with existing electronic queuing systems, as well as with the university's Web portal, showing the number of applicants in real-time according to faculty.
"The digital signage network helps applicants select the most appropriate curriculum for their needs and interests," said Igor Ivanov, vice rector of Bauman University, in the announcement. "On the other hand, it streamlines the work of the applicant selection committees due to the queuing systems and the fact that applicants can do an initial self-selection following the information that they see on the screens."
"The unique application at MSTU demonstrates the countless possibilities of digital signage and we are proud to have been chosen by one of Russia's most prominent institutions of higher education for this mission," C-nario CEO Tamir Ginat said. "Higher education is a strategic market for us and a number of universities and colleges in the US and Europe have already installed C-nario's platform."
