Google, Hypersign, Samsung partner for K-12 digital signage solution


Digital signage provider Hypersign has introduced a new digital signage solution for K-12 in collaboration with Google and Samsung Electronics America, according to a company announcement. The bundled offering is intended to enable students and staff to receive a wide range of content on digital signage and desktop PCs, such as standard school broadcasts to timely alerts for emergency preparedness.

"We are incredibly excited about the benefits this solution brings to the education market, elevating student and staff engagement while providing an incredible value," Hypersign CEO Neil Willis said in the announcement. "Our objective is to deliver a system that helps protect, educate and inform students, staff and visitors. Hypersign has only tapped the initial stage of our collaboration and we look forward to offering more solutions to the education market."

With the combination of Hypersign's own software, Google's Chrome devices and Samsung's commercial displays, information can be accessed and updated in real-time from anywhere, the company said.

The platform includes: 

  • Hypersign is a cloud-based digital signage platform that allows users to create and publish a wide range of content, which can be distributed to digital signs and desktop PCs from anywhere and managed from one central location.
  • Google's Chrome devices and management allows school administrators to manage their organization's Chrome devices, including Chromeboxes, from one central Web dashboard that can be accessed from anywhere and anytime.
  • Samsung commercial displays are designed to improve student engagement and deliver dynamic, cost-effective messaging. These displays feature commercial-grade components and come in a wide range of sizes, from 10 inches to large video walls.

This partnership is referred to as the "connectedu" and will focus on improving communications between school administration, students and other stakeholders using easy-to-use tools and products. The connectedu package of a Samsung commercial display, Google Chromebox device management and powered by Hypersign software will be available from more than 250 IT and AV resellers in the U.S., the announcement said.
