Following the tragedy at Virginia Tech University, WVU Television Productions personnel was tasked to develop a 24/7/365 information and emergency alert network that would span two WVU campuses in Morgantown, West Virginia, with both indoor and outdoor deployments.

The WVU team immediately set out to create an innovative digital signage system that would assist inprotecting the nearly 29,000 students and 7,900 faculty and staff members in the event of a campus emergency, as well as provide current information to the campuses. The system, which runs on X2O Media’s Xpresenter™ platform, gives WVU a robust model both for emergency alert notifications and for providing targeted and timely content over a reliable, redundant cross-campusdigital signage network.
